The centerpiece of the marble-floored lobby at the King Solomon is a huge, spherical sculpture of Jerusalem by renowned sculptor Frank Meisler. A split-level atrium reveals shops half a floor down and the dining room a floor below that. Guest rooms are larger than most in the area, and those on the 6th floor and higher have stunning views of the Old City. The decor is attractive, with dark-wood furnishings, translucent glass tabletops, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The
small pool on the 4th floor offers a stunning view of southeast Jerusalem. The place is popular with a religious clientele, especially on Friday, Saturday, and Jewish holidays. During Passover and Sukkot, room rates soar.
