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

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 anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast please PM dragoddfer, and he may be able to pay for the breakfast.

Any way for me to get a Grand Family Interconnecting Room for a decent price in August for 12 nights?

It depends what you call decent for the Waldorf

1 .Does the WAJ still give free breakfast to Hilton Honors Gold members ?  Or do you have to a diamond member ?
2. Are there any separate swimming hours in the WAJ ?

I wish to clarify my previous question about free breakfast.  My question was about an award stay at the WAJ.  Does a gold member get free breakfast ?

Hey was at the Waldorf a few times in the past month for Shabbos.
Diamond got me nice upgrade (most recent 1 bedroom suite) free breakfast (which I used as my Shabbos day meal) and $25 credit which I used toward my Friday night meal. Loved the addition of the pool and shvitz. Friday night meal was great lot of bochrim unlimited house wine. and checkout MS was 30minutes after shabbos was over..
Great experience much better than the aging plaza. food at plaza better hands down.

I知 a few days away from checkin got notice of very minute upgrade for diamond (grand room to grand room with balcony) is this the scope of upgrade or can it be further upgraded on checkin?

@Dan I think its time for another Reply-All email to the GM

https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/milespoints/whats-the-story-with-award-availability-at-the-waldorf-astoria-jerusalem/

Award availability keeps getting more and more scarce

Planing to stay 5 nights
Will it be an issue using certificate from multiple accounts ?
Does this hotel make any issues ?

From what I've heard, i'd avoid doing that.
No personal experience though.

If all the certificates are in your name then there is obviously no issue. But if you're secondary on several different accounts with multiple names, you're taking a risk there
