Breakfast:
Paying guests get breakfast for free. If you are staying on points you need to be gold or diamond to get free breakfast. (source)

Parking:
Complimentary (No longer, is now 60sh for self park - Drago)

Shuls Nearby:
Great Synagogue - Approx. 7 minute walk
Kotel around 15min walk thru the mall & arab Shuk (Only suggested when soldiers are present like friday night on the way home)
Hotel has a Shul in the basement

Hechsher: Plain Rabbanut Yerushayim (not mehadrin)

whatever your rabbi says you can eat, someone else's rabbi says is treif

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast (Hechsher, Early flight, etc') please PM shimino1

If you get free drinks vouchers and don't use them, I'll buy it off you for 10 shek per voucher.

I know its far away but if anyone has firm plans for the summer, the WAJ is currently having a sale with the base room starting at $378 and even more importantly, with the next up room (the King or Twin Deluxe that allows for 3ppl in the room when booking on the website, has space for a roll-away and will hopefully get an even better upgrade with status) for only $386 a night,  starting July 6th and covering the whole summer, including the weeks after Tisha B'Av, all the way through Sep. 1st. 

These rates are non-refundable but do include breakfast for everyone (no matter status) and are just a great deal.  Five nights for $1931.25 for a larger room that comfortably sleeps 3 ppl.  Also if you are Diamond and use their CC you can earn about 80k HHonors with the stay, so just a great value.

Received an email this morning from the Waldorf that:

"On January 23rd the State of Israel, Yad Vashem and the Fifth World Holocaust Forum are proud to host world leaders for the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.  Please be advised that between January 22nd and January 24th all streets surrounding the hotel will be intermittently closed to vehicular access.  On Thursday, January 23rd vehicular movement in Jerusalem in general will be restricted.  We urge you to consider significant delays and heavy traffic when making your travel plans in Jerusalem."

It doesn't say that the hotel parking lot will be closed, but does make it sound like it will be a pain to get around in a car.  Anyone have any further insight?

If you give them your HH account number, it doesn't matter how you got your stay (Hilton points, cash, UR points, etc...), you'll have your gold/platinum status.  However, you obviously won't have the 5th night free if the other 4 nights weren't all booked on Hilton points.
That is incorrect, if use a travel agent/3rd party site (including chase ur) you do not get to use status , you will not receive points. Comes up as travel agent booking.
If they are nice they will give am upgrade etc but they don't have to .

This is how they make sure you book through them directly as they lose on having to pay commission to travel agents
