I am updating my previous review. I visited this hotel again in August 2012 (it was a business booking chosen by somebody else) and my previous, largely positive, comments still stand (I wrote a very long review which can be found under November 2011). Whether this hotel will suit you will not be down to quality (the breakfast, service, facilities etc. are all really good) but down to the style of hotel it is. Bear in mind that the Leonardo Plaza is a very large, multi-storey hotel and has a very traditional Jewish character. There are almost no non-Jewish guests and in the summer there are predominantly large families. This time, as it was summer, I was able to enjoy the outdoor pool, which had been closed in the winter. We were given a cooler room further down the corridor away from the lifts, which was definitely preferable to the stuffy room we’d had in November. There is a lovely Arab gentleman who works on Reception (Sufiq??) who gave me a free ride in his own car to the Damascus Gate one morning at the end of his shift and advised me on how to visit Jordan for the day - on his advice I went to Jerash, which was wonderful. I remembered him from our last visit and must say he’s always very helpful and a real asset to this hotel. Overall, my impression is of a very professionally run hotel.
