Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Hotel ideas (points) for Israel for first timers that what to see the sites?
Jerusalem- Waldorf (or Crowne Plaza but it's a much worse location)
Tel Aviv- Sheraton
Herzelia (not really a first timer location)- Ritz Carlton

I think Dan has a DDMS post on all the points hotels in Israel. There's a bunch of IHGs. But most are not going to be in areas of interest to first timers.

Permission granted if you want to start a thread for help with your own trip planning if that's the case here. 

ETA- heres something- http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/97577

And here the IHG hotels are mentioned:

I'm trying to decide if you're really coming or trying to make us think so.

Can you convince DW that it is safe?  ;)
There is a better chance of me showing up latter this year than showing up at Milt's.

Except you don't need to convince me of something I already know. I will start a thread for my trip as not to clutter up this thread.
