The סוכות edition of the Hebrew משפחה includes an interview with the hotel's new owner.
He says he'll build a מקוה on the rooftop, and the hotel's restaurant will be under world class chef Gordon Ramsey.

Believe it when I see it.
Will have tough time building on the roof bc of zoning laws so can take years to get it approved .beaides the roof / building is not equipped to have a rooftop pool/mikva (wtvr u want to call it) so he would have to re do alot of the hotel to make it work.

Anyone know the name of the scent/fragrance used in the hotels floors and hallways?

Its their own scent they had made for the hotel. We were there for Succos and they gave us a bottle as a gift as we were leaving.

Can you send a picture of that bottle? Is there any name on it?

No idea about the mikveh but Gordon Ramsey was AT the WAJ when I was there right before Sukkot (after YK).  The owner already does these Gordon Ramsey dinner/stay packages at his WA Versailles so I'm assuming that is what he is planning to do in Jerusalem and it looks like they are working toward it not just talking about it.  The sukkah was amazing BTW and we really enjoyed our points stay and meals (I've now been there for all the Shalosh Regalim)  :D
