Can't remember exactly but plaza was around 400 nis, while I was told that Waldorf recently raised their price to 590 nis iirc.
Day meals are less for both.

Booked Thurs-Sat with points as it wouldn't allow just Fri-Sat.
Any way to modify it to Fri-Sat?
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.

Not AFAIK.
Hilton TLV plays the same games
From my experience in TLV they sometimes release one day inventory randomly so it's worth monitoring.

Last time I was at Hilton TLV the check in staff was amazed that i managed to do that  :-X

If all the certificates are in your name then there is obviously no issue. But if you're secondary on several different accounts with multiple names, you're taking a risk there
