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

Right. But then it's not just the WA, it's the entire hotel industry...

I think Covid regulations will bar it or at least make it unattractive enough.

At todays rate (even if we maintain the rate of decline) I think we are looking at ~50k/cases day by Sukkos, which would Ch"v translate to zero hospital capacity and 100+/day dying from the simplest medical emergencies. I think the gov't will intervene before we reach that point.

Exponential growth is difficult to grasp.

So you believe there is a סגר coming? In spite of all the ministers saying it seems off the table?

Yes, IMHO.

After somebody quoted R' Efrati saying that the Mashgiach can be relied on, I asked a close relative that is very close with him and answers שאלות on his קו הוראה to ask him if we can eat at the Waldorf. He just got back to me today and he responded to qoute "Yes I know him, and I know him as a reliable person, but that is still not enough to rely on the Kashrus of the hotel because many times you need to rely on many היתרים and he (R' Efrati) doesn't know if he (the mashgiach) is not מורה היתר at times that you should be מחמיר" and he finished off that it's self understood that he himself would not eat there.

Do the amount of point per night change often or only certain times of the month. I noticed Nov staring at 270 point and goes up every month.

I'm sure this has been posted all over, probably even on this thread a few times. I tried reading it all, but all the kashrus discussion got me in a haze.

Can I go straight from the airport to this hotel and spend my quarantine time in the hotel?

Is it risky to book someone as second guest using points or free nights here?
Sorry I don't have any snarky line for this space

Trying to book next weekend (11/18-11/22) and it says sold out.

Whats up with that? Nothing available? Not even suites. Doesn't make sense.

Can anyone help with getting a room?
