Waldorf Astoria JerusalemTraveling to Israel this year? Jerusalem will soon get a new luxury address, when Waldorf Astoria arrives later this year, bringing “Park Avenue-style luxury” to the heart of the historic city. Located at the intersection of King David, Agron and Mamila Streets just a short walk away from the Jaffa Gate and the Old City, the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem occupies a historic building with an ornately carved facade that's been extensively renovated.

The hotel will have 223 guest rooms and suites, a chic lobby bar, two separate spas for men and women with swimming pools and a state-of-the-art gym, and conference facilities including eight meeting rooms and a Grand Ballroom. The two restaurants will serve Mediterranean cuisine highlighting fine local products (think olive oil from the neighboring olive groves and lemons from the orchards in the Hebron Hills).

There are also 30 private residences located adjacent to the hotel, that get exclusive access to the Waldorf Astoria's amenities. For more information, visit www.waldorfastoriajerusalem.com.
