Stayed for the sixteenth and seventeenth times at this magnificent seaside hotel in late October and early November, 2013. Whenever I visit Israel, which I do at least once yearly, I stay at the wonderful David Intercontinental Hotel at the beginning and again at the end of my trip so I can both start and end the trip on a high note --by staying at my favorite hotel in the entire world. First a tip for the first time traveler to this hotel. Splurge the extra amount in order to have access to the club lounge where you can enjoy leisurely and sumptuous food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as delicious snacks throughout the day. Having lounge privileges provides you with expedited check-in as you bypass the lobby reception and go directly to the lounge on the 24th floor where there are no crowds to compete with while checking into the hotel. This lounge has Israeli (in English and Hebrew) and international newspapers for you to read and provides free access to computers. Everyone in the lounge is extremely helpful but Martina, Robbie, Hadil, Karni, and Ilan go far beyond the call of duty in being extremely kind, friendly, and helpful in every way they can. I have known Martina over many of the nine years of my staying at this hotel and she is a shining example of the excellent staff at this hotel. All the staff of this great lounge are to be heartily commended. I wish I could remember all their names. Every room in this hotel has a view of the Mediterranean Sea but the suites are particularly luxurious. If you have an Intercontinental Ambassador Gold Card which has a one hundred and fifty dollars per year membership fee then you will get an automatic upgrade to a suite if one is available which makes this card a very important one to have. The beds are extremely comfortable, the bathroom very spacious and chock full of lovely amenities, and the maid service extremely good. The food at the Aubergine Restaurant in the hotel is superb and the daily breakfast in the Jaffa Court restaurant in the hotel is the best in all of Israel by far. The hotel is located within a short and very easy walking distance of the Tayelet (the seaside promenade), the Carmel Market with its Middle Eastern ambience and a wonderful selection of foods, clothes, and souvenirs, the beautiful sandy beach for which Tel Aviv is rightly famous, and the port and artist galleries of Jaffa. Best of all when you are at the hotel the staff makes you manifestly feel that you are part of a family. Don't be surprised if you are approached by staff personally or on your room phone more than once during your stay in order for them to learn if you are satisfied with your hotel experience and whether there is anything they can do to make your stay better. Don't miss visiting the Art Tribes gallery (sculpture, oil paintings, and photographs of the highest quality) and the H. Stern jewelry store, both in the lobby, as both stores have excellent items on display.
