I have been traveling to Israel for business for 4 years about every other month, and I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else but the Renaissance Hotel. Most of the staff by now know me and welcome me by saying "Welcome back! So nice to see you again!" and I really feel that they mean it. They take very good care of me while I am in Israel, which is usually for 4-5 nights each time. The waiters even know that I don't drink coffee in the morning and at dinner I like a Coke. The doormen are very helpful and know I need a taxi and remember where I'm going. They always negotiate the taxi price for me. One time a taxi driver tried to rip me off and said there was a new tax and he charged me a higher price. When I got back to the hotel I told the doorman, and the next morning he got my money back. The hotel is in a superb location. You are right on the beach! Every room has a view of the Mediterranean. I have seen some amazing sunsets from my balcony. My favorite part of the hotel just might be the breakfast buffet - I look forward to it every time - the selection is great, and of course they have fresh squeezed OJ. Within walking distance you have so many great restaurants and some shops. There is even a pharmacy about a 10 minute walk if you need it. Because you are right on the beach, this is a great location if you like to walk on the beach or run along the boardwalk for exercise. The health club is good and they have an indoor pool, but I've never used the pool (why, when the sea is right there!). The rooms are good. They're bigger than a typical European room but smaller than a typical American room. They've upgraded the TVs to flat screens and they've upgraded the bedding considerably since I started staying there. I really like the bedding and the pillows. They give you a complimentary bottle of water at the start of your stay, though I wish they'd give you one every day because I drink a lot of water! But you can buy a bottle in the gift shop. The hotel is safe and in a safe location. There is always a security guard outside who will check your bag, but I don't mind this and I'm glad they do it. The hotel is part of Marriott but I think it is family owned so it has a very nice feel to it. The same people have been working there for years and act like they are vested in its success. I highly recommend this hotel to both business travelers and vacationers. I have met people from all over the world at this hotel, so they are used to dealing with different cultures. My company has held meetings at the hotel as well, and I think they've had very good service for corporate functions. One criticism is the price to pay for wireless Internet each day - ouch. But if you are going to Israel, you'll really enjoy staying at the Renaissance on the seashore.
