In the past 4 years the Hilton in Tel Aviv has become my 2nd home. I visit Israel between 4 - 6 times a year and besides a couple of times where I stayed at the David Intercontinental, I am always staying at the Hilton.
This is without a doubt the best Hotel in Tel Aviv and in Israel for me. If in Tel Aviv, the Hilton is definitely the place to be. After staying at this Hotel for so many times it is hard to think of bad things as you just get used to everything and you basically know what to expect, but let me try.
The only bad thing I can think of is that only the Vista rooms have been renovated but therefore you pay a cheaper price for the rooms in the lower floors which look a bit tired. In addition to that there is the elevators that sometimes can make you quit wait long to get up and down the 17 floors. This is mostly felt on the weekends where one of the four elevator is used as a Shabbat elevator stopping on every floor.
Another thing I don't like at all actually, is that it is possible for non hotel guests to enter the swimming pool. On our last stay there was a group of young Israelis entering the pool, being very loud and making a real mess of the place. A hotel pool is supposed to be enjoyed by its hotel guests and it's really sad to think that the Hilton is trying to earn some extra money by allowing locals to enter the pool for a certain fee.
The hotel service and it's staff are great compared to Israeli standards. You always see the same faces of the nice people working in this hotel for so many years now. Since it is a Hilton and there are so many returning customers, I can't really imagine it being any other way, with the hotel staff changing on a regular basis. Still it is a great asset for a hotel and I learned to appreciate it very much.
The food is fantastic!! From the Yakimono where you can have delicious sushi, to the breakfast, pool restaurant, etc' etc'. Food is the last thing you should worry about when visiting the Hilton.
Location is tops! Lobby area tops!! Swimming pool area tops!!!
Another great thing about this hotel is that you can find anything you need without having to go anywhere with all the different shops you have in the lobby. Car rental, Clothing, Jewelry, Antiques, Flowers are just some of the shops you can find in the hotel premises.
I recommend booking a room that will grant you access to the vista club on the 17th floor. This will give you the possibility to have a quick check-in upon arrival on the 17th floor and also free access to the club where you can chill, have free drinks and food and enjoy the best views in Tel Aviv. All this throughout the day of course.
It's funny but I don't think someone working in this Hotel can write a more detailed review than I just did. I guess that's what it's like when you find a place where you can really feel at home or at least close to it.
