The recent worldwide crisis has caused Israeli tourism to come to a halt but, now, the Dan Hotels collection has announced its hotels will begin reopening over the coming weeks.
Dan Hotels' flagship property in Tel Aviv, the Dan Tel Aviv, has remained open throughout the pandemic, but as of next week, Dan Caesarea and Dan Eilat will also begin welcoming guests. Other hotels in the collection will resume operations within the coming months after undergoing thorough disinfection and cleaning, with additional emphasis on areas where there is frequent contact. The Dan Accadia in Herzliya, the Ruth Safed and the Neptune Eilat are expected to reopen in mid-June. The iconic King David Hotel in Jerusalem, the Dan Carmel in Haifa and the Dan Panorama Eilat have a target opening date of early July, with the remainder of the group's properties opening by mid-August.
Dan Hotels has also developed a new app (available at some properties) named "App to Dan," which will allow guests to perform various actions during their stay without making physical contact with hotel staff.
The gyms, pools, entertainment venues, the Danyland Clubs and synagogues will be fully sanitized and prepared accordingly, and certain children's activities will be held outdoors. Breakfasts at the Dan Hotels will remain as buffets; however, guests will be shielded from the food by a transparent partition and hotel staff, wearing gloves and masks, who will fill their plates.
Dan Hotels includes 17 hotels in prime locations around the country, including the King David Hotel, a member of Leading Hotels of the World.
