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)

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.

My net rate is sometimes 295-350 at the Waldorf, But im not allowed to sell it for that rate, i have a minimum selling restriction. and it must be booked as part of a package. and its not booked with points.

of course, red card is free, though if that's all that they are worth, its not even worth wasting the spend on them.

not correct, the answer must be, "it was a part of a package" "or we paid for the package".

What do you mean locked out?

You mean the reserve 3ppd?

yes and maybe the citi depending on how target is classified.

edit. the surpass and the citi reserve both give 3ppd.

the basic citi may or may not depending on how target is classified.

Did anyone stay with kids in the room?
Did they charge you extra?
They claim that for a child over 3 there is a $110 charge per night
