i've never been to Israel so please don't get snarky.
Is food delivery the same over there as here in the states? can you order from most restaurants and have them bring it to your hotel? do they charge a fee or something?
Tons of places deliver. Most deliver free with a minimum order.

Restaurant food will trump room service anyways. Meanwhile you should be going out for most meals, not staying in :)

any kosher (mehadrin) hotels in the north? Haifa or tsfat area? i want to be able to order room service and have it be a proper meal rather than fruit.

In Israel, especially so this year, fruit is a bigger problem than many cooked dishes when unsure of kosher status.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

Tevel is a more serious issur than most. One of the things that makes kashrus in Israel more challenging than in the states.
