Hilton Worldwide’s Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem, marking the brand's continuing expansion in iconic landmark destinations across the world.
Set within a uniquely preserved ottoman façade, a meticulous restoration and ambitious construction have created an exceptional new luxury hotel which sits majestically at a crossroads between the charms of the walled Old City and the modern bustle of Jerusalem.
Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is located on the site of the former Palace Hotel, previously one of Jerusalem’s most renowned properties, which last checked-in guests in 1935.
Ideally located within walking distance of the walls of the Old City and the famous Jaffa Gate, Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is the only internationally-branded luxury hotel in the city. The hotel adjoins Jerusalem’s upscale shopping centre, Mamilla, and overlooks Independence Park, offering visitors the ideal base from which to explore the sights of the city.
Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem features 226 luxuriously appointed guest rooms and suites spread over ten floors, all of which offer unparalleled comfort and the finest amenities, with many overlooking the spectacular city and park.
Guests are offered an enviable selection of dining choices which include a French brasserie and a gourmet Italian restaurant.
