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)

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

What would be the issue? Bill it to the room and pay for the charges with a GC
Just wanted to make sure that gc's can be redeemed outside of the USA.

A cert has to be used for the account holder, so even if they open up space to apply the free night, they wouldn't be able to issue it for someone else.

Not my experience - my in laws have booked a weekend certificate for me in the past (with me as the second guest), and told Hilton it was for me. No issues.

Would it be a problem if I book one night with cash (Expedia coupons) and another 2 nights with cert's from someone else's account?

shouldnt be if you do things correctly like adding your name as a second guest to his certs. and about what you said earlier calling up the waj directly to apply the cert after you book with cash, I tried that and it didnt work  the reservation manager didnt know how to play around with the reservation.

Hopefully they can make it a 5 star experience. Alas that would probably require them to hire non-Israelis/non-Arabs.
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.
