Intercontinental Jerusalem
« on: October 18, 2017, 08:52:46 AM »
Apparently the mega project next door to the Leonardo Plaza on King George is going to include a 5* Intercontinental Hotel that will (attempt to) compete with the likes of the Waldorf/King David/DC. There will be apartments for sale as well.

Will be a couple of years before completion but exciting news nonetheless.

I heard it would likely be a JW Marriott, but that was a year ago and I'm sure plans changed. My source is pretty close w the project but he did say that negotiations were still underway at that time.

Funny at some point I heard it was going to be a Ritz as that's more exclusive and on the high end of Marriott

I hope it's an IC.  Great use of the free night or Ambassador cert. and IHG points are easy enough to accrue.

Wont say who the source was, but considering the individuals involvement with IHC in Israel, I would say that info is relatively reliable.

This is from the top floor of the plaza on pesach (see the plot where they were setting up underground parking prob on the right).

When I was there rumor was it was a ramada but that made no sense since the tryp is up the block. This makes sense, and I can't wait to enjoy the place in like 5 years...
