Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Signature Hotels -

Jerusalem’s Wal­dorf As­to­ria is an ex­em­plary em­bod­i­ment of old and new, cul­ture and style. As the first in­ter­na­tion­ally branded lux­ury ho­tel in the city, it brings to the re­gion a new level of elite. You’ll find 10 lev­els of 226 deca­dently ap­pointed rooms and suites, each robed in a blend of Graeco-Ro­man, Gothic and Ot­toman ar­chi­tec­ture. The mag­num opus here is the atrium and grand en­trance, with a high re­tractable glass roof which ex­udes open-air breezi­ness with a prom­e­nade of tiered arched win­dows rem­i­nis­cent of an out­door city street. Its prime lo­ca­tion is within walk­ing dis­tance of the iconic Jaffa Gate and Old City, and more lux­u­ri­ous de­vel­op­ments are also in the works, with two in­door lap pools, two gyms and two wet and dry saunas ex­pected to be com­pleted in 2015.
