My thanks to all of you for your kind advice on hotels in Tel Aviv. I am making my first trip to Israel the end of August. Because of your good advice, I was able to get the Sheraton for seven nights with a sea view and balcony and including breakfast on their Club floor for an extremely favorable rate, much better than anything offered by Leonardo Plaza, Renaissance, Crown Plaza, and Dan Panorama.
Now, I am turning my sights on to Jerusalem. I am looking for a good location,quiet surroundings, four or five-star accommodations. As you can see,I like a bit of comfort;I guess it goes with being 74.
