Jerusalem is where my wife and I were born and when we enter the American Colony, it feels like we have come home!
From the moment we stepped in, the staff recognized us from our previous visits and the oriental hospitality and warmth was always there wherever we went, from the breakfast staff, to the valet, to the taxi drivers even the proprietors of the bookstore and the gift shop!
Our room overlooked the pool and was light and airy. Having breakfast in the courtyard was delightful and every morning we looked forward to this treat. One morning while having breakfast, we started to chat with one of the landscapers who had designed the courtyard gardens, he went out of his way to give us a detailed tour of the herb gardens in back of the Palm House explaining us the history of some of the olive trees that were about one thousand years old.
We had dinner at the hotel for a couple of nights and the quality of the ingredients and the flavors of the food was excellent. The American Colony is an oasis of tranquility in Jerusalem and needless to say, we will never stay anywhere else!
