Does anyone know if there is a charge for a 3rd guest, I booked a standard 2 bed room on points? Also as a diamond member is breakfast free for the extra person staying in the room?

As diamond member you are allowed 2 people per room and free breakfast for both. 3rd person is usually $110 a night and comes with breakfast

Iíve stayed many times and we are always 5 people in 2 rooms (so obviously one room has a 3rd person) and have never ever been charged an additional person fee, for breakfast or for a rollaway and this includes stays on Pesach and Sukkot.

Ymmv also depends on age of person staying in room they are more lenient for kids vs 3 adults

Or 3rd can just stay with you for free and then pay just for breakfast for around 100שח.

Do they let that? Try adding 3rd person when doing booking and see if it's same price?
Not trying to start a halacha debate and ask your LOR but They charge for a reason for 3rd person when doing it online (not saying that hotel will actually charge you if add it later saying you don't need the bed and breakfast) but you are dealing with a Jewish owned hotel so there are gneiva issues when trying to game the system there.
And breakfast is 150 or 180

Dp, I stayed there this past Fri - Mon with 3 people total. I checked in at the front desk and told them that we are a party of 3, they said there would be no additional charge, breakfast included!

DPs donít matter at this hotel. They will do whatever they feel like. There is no consistency.

My travel plans changed and I have 5 nights booked at the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem. The dates are Thursday, 02 Apr 2020 Tuesday, 07 Apr 2020. Currently they are not bookable on points and the cash cost for those 5 nights is showing up at $2,982. I am selling these nights for $1,900. Booked from a Diamond account, free breakfast included. If interested please pm.

Looking to stay in June 2020. I am seeing rates at 334,000 per night. Am I doing something wrong?

no sometimes base rooms are not available and the higher price is for upgraded rooms...
