Paying guests get breakfast for free. If you are staying on points you need to be gold or diamond to get free breakfast. (source)

Complimentary (No longer, is now 60sh for self park - Drago)

Shuls Nearby:

Kotel around 15min walk thru the mall & arab Shuk (Only suggested when soldiers are present like friday night on the way home)

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast (Hechsher, Early flight, etc') please PM shimino1

Oh ok great. I have that card! So does anyone with that card get a upgrade to suite if they have availability?
they told me that the reason they upgraded me was because i was gold and it was the first time staying there. fwiw

i found it strange though since the hotel was fully booked. no rooms were for sale from 5 days before up until shabbos started

They are quite nice, also received upgrade

Them being full is a good reason to upgrade. They oversell the regular rooms and then upgrade gold members to suites. Like airlines. They rather have the hotel full, even if it means upgrading rooms to suites or economy pax to business

Is it really that hard to understand. They will upgrade a gold member over someone with no status. But being gold does not necessarily mean you will be upgraded
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Could be they oversold Reg rooms by the amount of suites so if they sold anything else at all they would not have enough rooms for everyone.
