I booked Hilton TLV as a back up, and just checked after shabbos and WAJ opened availability for this week, so I was able to switch my reservation before midnight. Thanks guys for the tip!

Anyone know where you can light shabbos candles when staying at WAJ but not eating in the restaurant?
Any clue if you're allowed to use a crockpot in your room?

Allowed?
Don't ask and don't tell. Keep the DND on.
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.

Like every other hotel. Maybe lightning candles is prohibited, officially, but slow cooking, never saw a rule prohibiting.
Always praying for delayed baggage.
