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

Did anyone use points from someone else's account (as a 2nd guest)  and had issues checking in.
I'm asking about points reservation, not a hilton weekend cert.
TIA

I also saw them earlier today and now their gone, so they must have gotten booked but if they're not blocked anymore then if people cancel paid or other stays then they should keep opening back up and it's worth it to keep checking.

For gold members, which amex plat (and plat AUs) get.
How do I get the gold? NY calling Amex? Does it reflect instantly?

Going up from a category 9 to a category 10 on Oct. 12th.

This doesn't mean there has to be any chance in award price as the prices for categories 9 and 10 overlap, but considering that the Waldorf was always pegged at the high season 80k a night rate, I will assume they will now peg it at the high season 95k a night rate 365 days a year as well. You can book by Oct. 12th for a later date at the lower rates.

Wow, sad.  If they do move that high and they are blocking the most sought after times, I can see people just staying there with their Citi free nights or as suggested upthread if it's off season and only high $300's a night better to use UR points for about 20-25k a night.
