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
Shul across the street

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

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast please PM dragoddfer, and he may be able to pay for the breakfast.

There currently aren't any rooms available... So
Yes but the question is will they be able to turn a cash booking into a points booking for rooms I'm holding

For any points? You sure you have the points option checked off?
Because a few minutes ago I definitely saw points options, albeit ridiculous ones

In addition, since they removed the "Standard" room category, we cannot use any free night certs!

It just seems ludicrous as a long term solution to avoid award bookings by not selling any standard rooms, what's their plan? Sell those rooms through private travel agents only?
