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

Hilton is having a promotion at certain hotels (inspiring WAJ) where the 3rd night of a 3+ night weekend stay (check in on Thursday, Friday or Saturday) is free. Book by 9/30, stay by 10/31.
Works for sukkos time, but one will have to begin reservation almost a week before yom tov (or 2nd day chol hamoed).

Anyone every stay in the king superior accessible room?

I have a reservation for two nights (hoping for four nights but no availability for the other two nights).  So far the only standard room available is the accessible room for for the first night,  but there's regular room available the second night.  I'm booked in the accessible room for both nights... Just wondering if anyone has any info. TIA

In most hotels accessible rooms are on lower floors and are a little bigger and have a handlebar in the bathroom, which seems to be the case here too, cmiiw. Though they mention on the website that the bed is lowered...

 It's usually reserve for handicapped so they will most likely upgrade you off the room for both nights

Tax is only for final bill so if use points and bill is zero then no tax if bill is $5 the tax u on the $5
Anyone have experience with this? I booked with points and total as $10 but on confirmation email it says tax is $104 even though i paid with points. I have an Israeli passport so I have to pay tax wherever I go...If anyone can share they're experience would be greatly appreciated.

It is a sells tax. They cannot tax you if there was not a sell.

Great! I stayed two nights two weeks ago (Friday night and Motzei Shabbos). One was a cert. of mine, I am gold, the other was someone else's who is a silver. After some talking they gave my wife and I an upgrade into (I think) a king deluxe room  with balcony for BOTH nights and agreed to give us Sunday breakfast complimentary even though the cert was from a silver member. I did not feel like we were treated differently than other guests...we had a nice experience with Natalie as our concierge who arranged the breakfast and upgrade.

Yes, very nice breakfast same as weekdays minus some of the omlets and ordered dishes. They provide grape juice free and wine for a charge. It closes at 11am. 8:30am hotel minyan is quick and will finish around 10-10:15. As long as you get their before 11 you can stay until 1130. Hope that helps.

do they give problems to people that use other people's certs and accounts to book a room Under your name?
