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

The bread and cheese both come from outside vendors, as does the prepared fish. I have no idea about the meat, though.

Any and all food prepared in the Waldorf kitchen has the status of Rabbanut.

That's technically true, but people who may not use Rabbanut may still eat outsourced foods.

aside fro the rabbunut that the hotel has as the hotel doesent want a better hechsher than that, did anyone check out hechsharim on specific food (bread,meat,cheese...)?
Mashgiach said all food in the hotel is under mehadrin/badatz/C"Y hechsheirim.

He asked a question and I answered.
The hotel seems to only source Mehadrin and above products but once its out of the wrapper its a moot point.

That's what I figured too, but once I spoke to reliable people about the situation and the mashgiach there I was comfortable enough to eat there.
Not saying it's for everyone, but people should do their own research.

Any idea if the waj would store my luggage for me for a night if for example I was booked there Monday night and then Wed-Sun night?
ETA: I know I could just call and ask but asking here is easier

Of course any hotel will

Depending on occupancy you can also leave the luggage in your room for a 50% charge

So far every date that I searched shows only premium reward rooms.

Is there any way to show which dates have standard room availability?

Try searching for just 1 adult

When the search shows not available, theres an option on the side see alternative dates, and u can just scroll down and see available dates.

Also- if you don't have the amount of points available in your account to book the award you are searching for, it will show as not available.

Logout of your account and then search.
