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

Hoping for some guidance -
trying to book rooms for some family members travelling early next year. (2 rooms)
1) I am gold, if I book for them and don't show, does that work?
2) if I book 4 (week)nights it shows at 95k a night, or $579. They won't be there for Shabbos, but want to come back Sunday night. If I do the full week it drops to 81k points and the rate for Shabbos is $550 a night. seems odd that Shabbos is cheaper?
3) Considering the above pricing, and the fact that my HHonors account is depleted, what would be the recommended path to book?

1. No issues generally but since ypu can xfer for free you can put it into their account and have them open card for gold b4 that. Also you could xfer to diamond account.
2. Pricing might be changing based on 5th night free

Mashgiach:
Thanks
Does he know you are posting his cell number online? Maybe it should be sent by PM only?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I could be wrong but I think Dan and a number of other people already posted it upthread.

Can someone recommend where to have Friday night meals and possibly shaabat lunch?
Also, is the breakfast any different on shaabat than it is on weekdays?

Friday night at the WAJ.

Shabbos lunch at the WAJ free breakfast, which of course is different then on weekdays.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
