Hotel help. Please

I have booked the Sheraton Towers and David Intercontential. There are mixed reviews on TA about both hotels. Can you please tell me which of the too is better. I am interested in lying at the beach for a few days, how far is the David from the beach, and what busy street do we cross to get to the beach from the Sheraton?

I am arriving early September, I assume it is still hot and swimming weather,

Thanks I would appreciate any feedback

The weather at the beginning of Sept will still be very warm.

None of the hotels in Tel-Aviv have a private beach. A few are on the beach promenade but most - including the two you mention - are across the street (Herbert Samuel or Hayarkon). You can see this on Google Maps and Streetview.

The Sheraton is closer to the beach, the David Inercontinental is a nicer hotel and a bit further from the beach but closer to attractions in the center of town. September is still summer so it will still be hot.

The Sheraton is better for enjoying the beach. You get out of the hotel and you are on a nice beach. The sea neae the Intercontinental is not suitable for swimming, as a matter of fact swimming is forbiden there. Both have pros and cons, I would take the Sheraton.

If the beach is your priority, then the Sheraton. It is literally steps away.

The David Intercontinental is a very luxurious hotel, and if it is that luxurious feel you want, then that is where you would stay. It is still walking distance to the beach but not nearly as close as the Sheraton.

Would you please tell me which hotel is more in the center Intercontinental or Sheraton? Which hotel is better for women travelers? which area is more happening? I heard Sheraton is going to be under construction in January, Do you think Dan is better or Sheraton or Intercontinental? Can we walk to Dizengoff area from Sheraton or Dan? Is it close?

Is there any night life around Sheraton or Dan? Or Intercontinental has better night life. which hotel is better to go in winter time. Please help.

Thank you for your help.

The Sheraton Tel Aviv and the Dan Tel Aviv are both located in the center of the beach promenade of Tel Aviv. Both are within walking distance of Dizengoff Street and much of central Tel Aviv. Both are located directly on the beach.

The David Intercontinental may be a bit more upscale. It is located at the southern end of the hotel strip, closer to Old Jaffa and Neve Tzedek. This hotel is located across a busy street from the beach.

If you are looking for the nicest of the three hotels and are not planning to go to the beach (winter), you might prefer the David Intercontinental.
