Bottom Line

The King David is one of Jerusalem's -- and indeed Israel's -- most famous hotels, drawing countless diplomats and celebrities since it opened in 1930. (Just take a look at the lobby floor, which is inlaid with the names of notable past guests.) The grounds are impressive, featuring a huge outdoor pool and a tennis court, a rarity for Israel. The lobby is usually bustling, and its high ceilings, marble floors, and bright geometric accents make a grand first impression. Rooms, however, may be a tad disappointing given the hotel's prestige; the decor in some is underwhelming and a little bland. Most are large, however, and some have wood floors, balconies, and Old City views. The hotel's rich history and high level of service make this a premier luxury option.
