The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem opens

Hilton Worldwide’s Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts today opened the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem.

Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is located on the site of the former Palace Hotel, which last checked-in guests in 1935. 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.

The centrepieces of the hotel are the grand entry and lofty atrium promenade, including a retractable glass ceiling which floods the hotel with natural light throughout the day. Complemented by arched windows, this open-air architectural style creates the atmosphere of a Jerusalem city street. Drawing on the rich heritage of Waldorf Astoria, a towering, iconic clock rests in the atrium expanse, with four sets of numbers covering its four faces.
