I was on a large group tour of 4 tour coaches, and we spent one night in this hotel on our way around the Galilee and Dead Sea area.
Among the 4 hotels I stayed in on the trip, the Jericho was the best in terms of room opulence (and yes I mean opulence, not just room standard). My room was a standard double room that came with 2 king-sized beds. Mattress was a bit soft for my liking (though I slept very well) but from feedback from my tour mates, they loved the softness. Apart from this, the furnishings were top-classed. Furniture in the room looked like they were made of teak with classy finishings. Wardrobes had internal lights that turned on automatically when one of the wardrobe doors was opened, and the bathroom came with vainity mirror that magnifies one's face and has a light to boot - great for any intricate skincare or makeup routine. Along with the standard freebies like coffee and tea, toiletries, bathrobes were also provided in the bathroom. The only shortcoming were that internet was not free and that the heater could not warm up my room properly (being late November and winter then). All in all, the room was the highlight of my short stay here.
We had our meals (one dinner and one breakfast) at the Palm Restaurant on the 4th level, and I must say that despite the prior reviews I read, the service and food were excellent. I managed to walk around the hotel, and the swimming pools and tennis courts looked very inviting. Overall, I would say that this is a very beautifully furnished hotel, inside and outside.
The Jericho Intercontinental truly lived up to its 5-star billing during my stay.
