Is it possible to book with a certificate on the app?
It's showing availability fine on the regular website for me. Try clearing your cookies or going incognito...

Spoke to some people At hotel today and it Seems to be same french guy buying it  guess he got some money or investors .
 Now seems to be official but guess we'll see how official it is this time.
Was also told they have renewed their contract with Hilton for another 15 years ,  not sure if that's new 15 or added to what was left seems to be added on but can't confirm
Kashrus will remain the same
Still no word on a pool though
Yes. Same French guy. However the reason it's real now is because he finally wired the money over.. 163mm purchase price.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Yes last time he missed the first bunch of payments.
They made an official announcement today at the hotel that there was a change in ownership

Probably bc as far as they know he bought it like 6 months ago which is when it was in the media , it was never reported that the deal was in jeopardy of falling through

Suddenly a miracle happened, standard award rooms opened up this morning (Israel time) for Shabbos this week...despite them having NO friday nights throughout June/July (which is extremely suspicious since in some cases all the days before and after have standard rewards excluding Friday night). In any event I actually need next shabbos hopefully will open up in time for cancellation of other place...
