Came into Jerusalem and stayed a few days at Bayis Katan in Germantown. Moved to the Leonardo Plaza for Shavuoth, the festival of the giving of the Torah at Sinai. If you come from the New York area, the Plaza is the best location for your stay. You are greeted by the fabulous and friendly guest relations staff, headed by Suzan and staffed by Adi, who is both helpful and professional. Adi will keep on asking what the hotel can do for you throughout your stay. Sofian at the front desk is beyond helpful and could teach the New York staff of many hotels how to behave with guests. Safa, Odeh and Shieh deserve special mention.
The food is first rate and that is world over. We had friends staying at the Waldorf ( a beautiful addition to Jerusalem) but came to eat at the Leonardo Plaza - for the food! That's a big statement considering many New Yorkers are here for the crowd and the Great Synagogue across the street. Chef Shalom Kadosh is without peer in the hotel world of fine dining. He is concerned even after the food is out of his kitchen. The wait staff is prompt, courteous and understands your needs. The breakfasts are so elaborate, you are not ever hungry for lunch. Our waiter Yusef is a true pro. The restaurant has new gorgeous carpeting and feels fresh and inviting.
They have constructed a wonderful Balcony off their Prima Vera Cafe that is astounding for its slate tiles and tall lighted globes; which makes it look otherworldly. You can dine overlooking th e pool and really enjoy yourself. The Pool itself now has this fine slate floor as well as bulit in semi cabanas that both protect you for the sun and let you tan.
Overall, I ate at the Inbal. Waldorf, King David and Mamila and have to say that the Plaza is the best bang for the buck.
