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)
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

What type of room did you stay in?
Booked standard points/cert rooms. Asked for connecting + upgrade.

Got connecting rooms, one with balcony on 8th floor. They say it's a 2 category upgrade.

I checked in not long ago.

They just delivered chocolate milk and cookies for my kids.

This maybe a little off topic but are there any chain hotels with points/miles programs left in Northern Israel. Looking for a 2 night stay and would like to use Chase/Amex/SPG miles if possible.

Wow! So the room you are currently in is the one right under a suite, correct?

Seems it's under a junior suite. Checkin told me they would give me a jr suite but there are none available with a connecting room. Gold member.

Another data point- wiki says self park $12 and valet $24.

My booking confirmation said self park $12 but valet $20.

When I checked in and asked about self parking I was told that valet is the same price as self-park. Complimentary.

I took the valet.

So all you did was ask for a connecting room at check in?

I got an email about 2 weeks before my reservation date and replied to my "personal concierge" that I need connecting rooms and a crib. She was adamant about knowing what time id be checking in in order to make my stay a more pleasurable and memorable one.

I also asked about an upgrade (as a gold member) and was told that I would recieve one based on availability.

I got a similar email, though I tried calling and couldn't get through. Did you email the "concierge"? Or call?

I emailed Ashley, my personal concierge. Her email address was in the welcome email ~2 weeks before checkin date.
