Since the suite nights are gone and I can only buy them.

How much more worth it is it to have a suite booked out of a Diamond account, then a plat.

Besides for the Kosher breakfast, which sounds like its a YMMV, and maybe an upgrade (probably can get that without, if it's available) what would Diamond get me.

Booked someone in PHP in a suite as a DIA and they got champagne, kosher brekkie, and an upgrade to an executive 2 bathroom suite.

The difference comes out to be $194.5 per a night.

Not sure it's worth it  just for the breakfast, but for the executive 2 bathroom suite....

Still not worth it.
The points I have, it's just a matter of buying a suite night (plat) or using the points (Diamond).

As I said before, if I buy the night, it comes out cheaper then using points.

I'm looking for recommendations, what do you suggest a newlywed couple do in Israel
November/December? We will be in Israel for 10 days. We want to enjoy our time in Israel.
We don't want to pay tour guides a fortune. We will be Israel over Chanukah.

We are looking to visit at least 1 or 2 wineries. Any recommendations are appreciated. Are
there any near Jerusalem/Tel Aviv area? We are staying in Jerusalem and don't want to travel
more then an hour and a half by bus. Thanks in advance.

In general that isn't the best weather time for J-M TLV, maybe spending some time in the Dead Sea area?
