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
Shul across the street

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

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast please PM dragoddfer, and he may be able to pay for the breakfast.

Not always at the Waldorf, but there is a daily Mincha/Maariv at Mamilla boulevard by the lottery booth outside FootLocker before Zara.
Mincha I believe is 1:15, not sure about Maariv.

Have stay booked on points/ certs from our diamond account into superior room.  Hilton providing a decent option for a cash "standby" upgrade to Grand Deluxe. Do I reduce chance of Diamond upgrade by taking the paid one or could/would they upgrade on top of the paid one?

No special upgrade other than you get Breakfast free. We liked the breakfast.

for 3 in a room, do they charge for a cot? if so how much per day? assuming they'll charge a extra fee for breakfast for the 3rd person (1 adult 2 teens)?
