Breakfast:
Paying guests get breakfast for free. If you are staying on points you need to be gold or diamond to get free breakfast. (source)

Parking:
Complimentary (No longer, is now 60sh for self park - Drago)

Shuls Nearby:
Great Synagogue - Approx. 7 minute walk
Kotel around 15min walk thru the mall & arab Shuk (Only suggested when soldiers are present like friday night on the way home)
Hotel has a Shul in the basement

Hechsher: Plain Rabbanut Yerushayim (not mehadrin)
hechsherim in isreal
whatever your rabbi says you can eat, someone else's rabbi says is treif

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast (Hechsher, Early flight, etc') please PM shimino1

If you get free drinks vouchers and don't use them, I'll buy it off you for 10 shek per voucher.
PM shimino1

Just had a client checkin without AH no problem.
Would it be suspicious if someone checks in with 2 different reservations from 2 different Hilton accounts ?

I can only say from my experience. You can tell that they know about it, but i had done a long stay on 3 different accounts and did not have a problem. I've also done few times from 2 different accounts and no problem

just because they let you do it. Doesn't mean they are ok with it.

Have you had experience where they did not allow you to stay?

no what I am trying to say is: right now they are letting people get away with it. But that doesn't mean it will last forever especially if it gets abused.

Do they have any superior rooms with two queen beds, or can you only book the king superior room with points ?
