That the food served in the hotel dining room or restaurant for breakfast and dinner is mehadrin.
My searches have turned up very little outside of Yerushalayim, and nothing that I would consider a nice hotel.

Try Kibbutz Lavi (the new wing is very decent), Nir Etzion, OR the Kinar.

I know there are a few websites that you can book an apartment to stay at when in Israel. I just can't seem to remember other than diradirect.com.

Anybody know of other websites with listings?

Yes I do
Otzar haaretz should have a list of stores on their site. The מה כשר app can also find the closest otzar haaretz store to you.
From what I've seen, Osher Ad in talpiyot has some otzar beis din fruits
