I just got back from spending 9 nights at the Dan in Tel Aviv. We paid $480 a night for a Ocean View Room. Since we were paying almost $500 a night, expectations were high.
Pros: Staff was nice and we were checked in very quickly. The lobby smelled very good and was clean. The view from our room was amazing. We had a room that positioned the bed to face the window. We could see the beach and sunset from the comforts of laying in bed everyday. The bathroom was nice and the bed was very comfy. However the service in the room was not consistent during our 9 night stay. Some days we would have 2 water bottles and other days 1. Some days we would get chocolate and other days nothing. On Shabbat we were given a very delicious loaf of bread. Indoor Pool was nice. The view from the pool deck/pool was great. The breakfast was very good. I looked forward to it each day.
Cons: My biggest issue was that paying $500 a night, I want that WOW feeling. For starters, if I am paying that much, it would be nice to have WiFi in my room included and not have to pay an additional 25-26 USD per day. Some days I don't want to sit in the lobby just to be able to use the internet. There is no Valet services besides the day you check in. You have to park in a structure that is attached to the Dan. You also have to pay extra for the parking. Outside pool was not heated and was too cold to swim in. The Jacuzzi is TINY... I mean it can maybe fit 4 adults. When we went to check out, there were charges for mini bar use and telephone use that should not have seen. The lady at the front quickly reversed those.
No doubt that the Dan is a really nice hotel and I would stay there again. Just like I said before, paying that much for a room, you would expect a little more.
