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

if WAJ is only showing premium room availability (points at 183k) for the shabbos i want will that prevent me from trying to use a weekend night certificate from HHonors Reserve?

Yes. The certificate can be used for a standard award only.

Did you try calling?  Occasionally there is some availability that doesn't show online.

Do shabbos meals require prior reservations? Stay is for chanukah and nervous that they'll be full.
