The King David is, needless to say, one of the most expensive hotels we will ever stay in. However, there is no substitute for the great location, the history of the hotel, and the great service. At every step, the staff went out of their way to make sure our every need and wish was catered to. This extended from the bell staff at the front door, to the reception, the personal butler assigned to us from the manager's office, the waiters in the dining room, to the housekeepers who serviced the room.
We had only one glitch during the entire stay of 3 days - we had arranged 2 days ahead, through the concierge, for a guided walking tour of the Old City. When the time came for the tour, it turned out that somebody had failed to call the guide. However, the staff jumped on it, and within 30 minutes we had a very knowledgeable, great guide who came on the spur of the moment and it was a great experience. The next morning, our butler came to apologize in person for the lapse, and they were quite anxious to make us happy.
Overall, it was worth the once-in-a-lifetime experience in a great place!
