My hebrew isn't that great and neither is my understanding of how this stuff works. Does this mean it's about to become the "Leonardo Astoria"?

I actually know Jeremy Blank. He hasn't worked for York for over half a year so the Calcalist headline is a bit odd. I'll try to clarify with him

As of now it's been taken over by the company but everything is staying the same , they are stuck in the same contract with Hilton as when last owner signed so they can't just sell it or break away from Hilton. Everything is finally done with the hotel (pool and spa) so when someone buys it , doesn't make sense to gut it to rebuild it . Makes sense to leave it as a hotel.

Any pics of pool and spa?
Any idea how long the Hilton contract is for? What's the penalty for early termination?
