Waldorf Astoria opens Jerusalem hotel

Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem

Hilton Worldwide’s Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has opened its luxury 226-room hotel Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem.

Set in a restored building , the former Palace Hotel, developed by the Turkish Mufti of Jerusalem in 1929, with an Ottoman-style facade, at a crossroads between the charms of the walled Old City and the modern bustle of Jerusalem.

The breath-takingcentrepieces of the hotel are the grand entry and lofty atrium promenade, featuring a retractable glass ceiling which floods the hotel with natural light throughout the day. Complemented by arched windows, this open-air architectural style creates the atmosphere of a Jerusalem city street. Drawing on the rich heritage of Waldorf Astoria, a towering, iconic clock rests in the atrium expanse, with four sets of numbers covering its four bold faces. Blending Greco-Roman, Gothic and Ottoman architecture, the hotel is a wonderful mixture of cultures, creating a fascinating space beyond the hotel’s beautifully preserved 80-year old façade.
