I have never reviewed a Hilton property even though I have stayed at scores of Hilton and affiliated properties over the course of many years for both business and pleasure. Hilton properties are, almost always, consistent in what is promised and what is provided. For me, the consistency is one reason I have chosen Hilton properties for business travel. The Hilton Tel Aviv, however, is different. It is a cut above, providing, in our case, more than we expected, and more than was promised.
The property itself is, of course, very impressive, well-maintained, in a great location, and I assume someone could spend weeks there and never experience everything the property and its surrounds have to offer.
The view from our room was spectacular, offering a panorama of the Mediterranean coast and the city of Tel Aviv that was picture perfect. The hotel is located on the promenade, which allows people to stroll along the Mediterranean shoreline from the hotel all the way to the Old City of Jaffa. A visit to Jaffa is worth the hike, or the relatively short cab ride.
At least on this occasion, the Hilton Executive Lounge was one of the best I have experienced, including Executive Lounges in other foreign countries, which are generally speaking a higher quality than they are in the US. The food was quite tasty and the selection of Israeli wines (yes, there is an excellent wine industry in Israel) was very nice.
As with any property, many times it comes down to the people who work there when judging whether a hotel receives a good or bad review. The Hilton staff, from check in to check out, were professional, welcoming, friendly, and, perhaps most importantly, helpful when we had a question or needed a little extra help.
As a side note, our stay at the Hilton Tel Aviv coincided with the recent trouble between Israel and the Gaza Strip. At no time did we feel the least bit unsafe or uncomfortable.
The Hilton Tel Aviv is clearly one of my favorite Hilton properties and we look forward to our next stay.
