There are two separate high-rise towers in this well-equipped 1980s-built hotel; the less-expensive tower is sometimes closed during off season, and then everyone gets the attractive deluxe rooms. Public areas are spacious and serve as a conduit between the two sections, with hundreds of tiny star lights creating a romantic, almost sculptural effect at night. The large indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, and the excellent health club are major strong points. However, the hotel's service is not as strong, and the decor in many rooms is wearing thin. Restaurant facilities are glatt kosher. Except in high season, you'll often find a discount policy: Stay 7 nights and pay only for 6. This is the farthest hotel from the center of town on Sderot Herzl, but there's a free downtown shuttle service; from here you can walk to Mount Herzl and Yad VaShem.
