referring to the food, i assume...
I think he was referring to the experience as a whole.

So can someone who has stayed here and eaten shabbos dinner/lunch detail how much it costs.  I am staying at the WA with three little kids and I saw a mention of a "family plan".  Otherwise it seems pretty silly to spend $100+/pp for two adult and three little kids who barely eat for each meal on shabbos.  Any other suggestions are appreciated too.

Did I miss something?
I just wanted to book the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem for a couple of nights, and the price is 133k hh points a night, compared to 80k I paid recently!
Have I done something wrong? Or are these regular winter rates?
Thanks

Correct that the 133k is premium.

However, when I booked this hotel, it was only showing premium rooms online but was still able to book over the phone.

Did you scrol down? Occasionally standard rooms are one of the later rooms on the website.

If your looking for around now, the beginning of February then the reason is Bec Bobov is making a big event in Jerusalem and the booked out basically every room available in many hotels.
