King David

23 King David St., Jerusalem, Jerusalem, 9410147, Israel

This grande dame of Israeli luxury hotels opened in 1931 and it has successfully defended its title ever since, adding modern amenities like a well-appointed gym and luxuries like a French-style restaurant called La Régence. The ceilings, columns, and walls of the bustling lobby and lounge are decorated in "ancient Mesopotamian" geometrics. Airy guest rooms are elegantly orchestrated in burgundy and gold, with old-fashioned writing tables adding a gracious touch. Pricier rooms and suites have views or balconies facing the Old City. Shaded by palm trees, the landscaped pool area is the most beautiful in Jerusalem.
