Thanks in advance. Quite a while ago I posted a question about my arrival date/time, but to refresh; I am taking a flight from Portland, Oregon USA to TLV with an eight hour layover in Warsaw, Poland, overall a long flight. I arrive in TLV around 2-3 AM on Friday Oct 28. The consensus (answers in that thread) was to go ahead and book a hotel in Tel Aviv for Thursday night as well as Friday, so I can gain access to my room at that hour and then rest up.
I am going to use Eldan since I love the flexiblility.
I have already made a reservation with the Gordon Inn (which I still could cancel) for those dates and then I intend to travel to the north. I have already paid for two nights in Tiberias (Oct 29-30) and head up to Jerusalem to my rental for the rest of my stay.
But now I am looking at just going to Netanya instead of Tel Aviv, maybe saving myself one night of hotel and spending it on the airport pickup. You see, to pick up my rental in Tel Aviv, I must pick it up before 1:00pm and then find a parking lot near the Gordon Inn. Most hotels in Netanya offer free parking(? I did miss out on the Margoa).
I know that one should visit Tel Aviv for a day or so, but with my schedule, etc. I just don't know how much of the modern experience I would get while I'm in Tel Aviv anyway.
