Where in France and where in Italy? If Paris, you may want to check out the Park Hyatt. Mentioned many times throughout the Paris thread and in Dans TR

I'm staying in a few weeks at the Hilton Tel Aviv for 6 nights using cash + points, then the WA Jerusalem for 4 nights using a combination of 2 80k point nights and 2 weekend certificates.

I'm flying from Los Angeles on BA, I bought business class tickets to London when they went on sale last year (use of avios and AARP discount brought the ticket price down to approx. $800, thank you Dan!) and then avios in business on the LHR-TLV leg.

Already planning on my points strategy for our next trip, most likely United or BA. I am getting to fly in business on the new United TLV-SFO route in August and will see how that goes (rather than connecting in Newark).

I honestly wouldn't even have thought about it if not for your 'Hyatt with pools' thread!! Do you know if it's Shabbos friendly?

:) Rooms were electronic but that's easily taken care of. No sensors in room that I saw. Lobby doors and doors to the back are manual. Didn't take steps, but they were there. 6 floors total.

Ye he nixed it. Something about $700 in airfare not being worth it... Ftr my euro trip was without my 4 yr old. This would be a special treat for her because she missed out. Driving there wouldn't be as fun cuz she's really asking to fly...

Umm miles? Also Baltimore is an hour away so that's still a decent chunk of driving. And if you fly simple bc a 4 year old wants to...
