THE DRISCO HOTEL TEL AVIV
Forming part of the prestigious The Leading Hotels of the World collection,
The Drisco Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel offers a distinct experience catering to savvy travelers and patrons. Channeling an exceptional history that spans 152 years, the beautifully restored property has been invigorated by a contemporary design encapsulating Ottoman grandeur.
Situated in fashionable and eclectic south Tel
Aviv just steps away from the beaches, Rothschild Boulevard, delightful Neve Tzedek, Jaffa’s flea market, and old Jaffa, at the revived American-German Colony neighborhood. Offering atmosphere and character, adorned with chic bars, galleries, cafes, restaurants and young designers’ boutiques, this part of town is the urban heartbeat of Tel Aviv. When entering the hotel, you are met by superior elegance, which intensifies as you make your way to your room. The conception of each of the hotel’s 42 rooms and suites took careful design, providing a unique experience and the intermingling of old world luxury and modern-day comforts.
The Drisco presents a wonderful and diverse collection of rooms and suites, while the connected combination of certain rooms can offer a set of rooms and suites. For exclusivity and privacy, opt for the stand-alone
Villa Drisco that comprises five rooms and one suite. Choose from a selection of rooms with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea or the inner piazza, the charms of Old Jaffa and the American-German Colony.
With history at the core of the property’s allure, the Drisco brothers made their way from Maine, USA to establish a luxury hotel in the holy land, building the first hotel outside the walls of the old Jaffa (now Tel Aviv). Originally named The Jerusalem Hotel, it was known as the most prestigious hotel in the region between 1866 and 1940.
A lengthy reconstruction project began in 2006 and concluded in 2018, with focus on the restoration and preservation of its original architecture, the storytelling wall murals with priceless art value and its historic style. This reimagined hotel bears testament to two brothers, John and George Drisco, who arrived on the shores of Jaffa over a century and a half ago with a dream, yet never quite managed to see it through.
