They cut out the Le Meridien part of the name, so its the David Dead Sea Hotel and resort now.

The shul at the Royal is much bigger and much nicer than at CP.

I'm commenting on the CP's shul quality.
And I've been to the Royal, although I don't remember the shul all that much.

I would call the Royal a shul and CP a extra space the hotel made for praying

Sounds about right.
At least the CP's shul was nicer than the LMDS 'shul'.
