The 226-room Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem has debuted on the site of the former Palace Hotel, one of the Israeli city's most renowned properties until 1935. The hotel, within walking distance of the walls of the Old City and the famous Jaffa Gate, has nine meeting rooms and a ballroom. A spa and recreation center, which will feature two indoor lap pools, two gyms and two wet and dry saunas, will open in 2015.
