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 article claims that it will not only stay Hilton but that the contract requires the buyer to begin construction of the pool and spa immediately.
Thanks for posting, just finished reading the Hebrew article, good it is staying a Hilton.

I'll believe it when I see it it's been "under construction" since it opened but even if start it will take a long time to build

Considering they say it's had a high level of kashrus I'd say...

You do not honestly think that a successful businessman like Ohaion will sink $150M into the WAJ without knowing about points reservations? or maybe you were joking and I missed the point :)

+1. The sales price is based on revenue, and they will have poured through years of receipts...discounting for “abnormal” ratios of sleeping room/meetings & banquets, points/revenue bookings, etc.

Well it was no secret why it shlepped the whole time. The new owner wants it and it will only bring good for the hotel to have it.

I am there IYH Fri-Tuesday, booked way back.
I noticed a few days ago that the second Sunday was available using points, maybe keep checking...
