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

Your personal attack on my standards does nothing to gain you credibility. You know nothing about me. I never said you made anything up & I never said Iíd rely on their hechsher, I said that what your saying about specialty cheeses is not at all a reason why the entire hotel is not mehadrin. Regardless the fact that you felt a need as well to accuse them of having items without any hechsher says a lot about the value of your opinion.
Well as the saying goes" you are what u eat" so I try to eat kosher , and I didn't accuse them just not a naive person to assume a guy in a suit with a beard says it's kosher means it's kosher especially if u know what goes on in Israel with the kashrus. Anywhere I go I ask basic questions like who does bug checking and if In israel there's maaser and depending.on the year shvius u have to worry about , problem of who turned on fires ,what about hafrashas challah especially in Israel , dairy products are they chalav yisroel , mashgiach tmidi for meats etc. A person has to really be careful , just bc he told.me so or everyone eats there doesn't make a person less responsible if he doesn't care to be informed of check it out himself.

If their standards are not up to par regarding cheeses then what level of confidence can you have about other items? What else may they rely on? What may they rely on in a pinch?
Feelings don't care about your facts

So now youíre accusing them of using cheese without a hechsher at all. These cheeses are specialty cheeses, theyíre not using them in your pancakes or eggs & I canít think of a common scenario that would cause them to use utensils used for those cheeses for your eggs or pancakes & even if they did-

 Iím not claiming to know anything about their Kashrus but what youíre saying is not worth much. You gotta find other reasons to say theyíre not mehadrin & at the same time try not to accuse them of using treif because it just cheapens anything else you say.
By mashgiach first saying it's all kosher  mehadrin then admitting it's not after when pressed is pretty bad so therefore can't say everything  in hotel is.mehadrin i never pressed him for meats  personally but apparently people.claim they use plain rabanut and i never used the word treif anywhere.

Are the shabbos meals that they offer under a better supervision, or just the regular questionable supervision ?
