Herods Hotel Tel Aviv
Travel Blogs from Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv is beautiful! We have a great view of the blue waters of the Mediterranean from our balcony. Actually, I wish we could stay a couple of days here to check out this seemingly "happening" city, but it's only a brief stop.
At 8:00 am, we were met by our new guide, Micah (pronounced "mee'-kuh"), a very nice 50-something Israeli who, like …

Returned to our hotel, claimed our baggage, and waited for our taxi to the airport to arrive. Played the game that we learned too late on this trip. Most big tour buses have free ...
... We had a great dinner. There were members from 3 families at the dinner. They all live on the moshav down the road from where I am at. The food was delicious and we even had pecan pie, one of my favorites. After dinner, we lit the candles for Hanukah and sang a song. They told us the story behind Hanukah. The song we sang was in Hebrew but she gave us the words so at least I was able to sing along. Needless to say after a few weeks here, I still have ...

Mom and I walked up to the Wishing Bridge, which was disappointingly closed. We strolled around the park, taking in excellent panoramic views of Tel Aviv. Mom then browsed several jewelry stands in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Herods Hotel Tel Aviv
I must agree with those who gave this hotel less than favorable reviews! It is definitely not the quality one expects of the Sheraton world-wide chain. Having spent the last 6 weeks tooling about the Mid-east and staying in Sheratons when possible, I must say this hotel is at the bottom of my pleasant-hotel-stay list. I have been appalled. From the surley manner of the registration desk personnel, to the maintenance worker dispatched to repair my toilet, to the baggage handlers, the staff has been less than warm and accommodating. The room assigned to me is drab beyond belief and has that 70s worn look typical of 2 star hotels. At $170 a night, trust me I am not impressed. Having stayed in no other hotel here in Tel Aviv, I have no way to compare this hotel with others in the surrounding area; but this is definitely not the hotel you want if you are expecting the typical 5 star Sheraton experience.
Very Very Bad
Just returned from a two week trip and spent three nights at the Moriah. No matter how you slice it, the hotel and the immediate surrounding area are pretty bad.If you have to stay there, make sure you get a renovated room. Be wary of the excellent reviews on this page. Trust me they are lying! ( service was not great either)
Just returned after a 2 week trip. We had to spend 7 nights in the Sheration Moriah, since they would not give us 5 nights. I wanted to stay in that area, since we have been there many times, it is easy to get around, love the beach there.
You are looking for a hotel in a vivid city, next to a wonderful beach with great variety of food and dedicated personal support? Well, the Sheraton Moriah in Israel's exciting city of Tel Aviv is it.
I have just returned Tel Aviv where I went for business. The hotel location is on the beach front with a beautiful view,you really cant beat it!
Great beach front location.
Great service. Friendly staff.
Will come definatelly return.
Hotel evaluation: Sheraton Moriah Tel Aviv
Location is excellent. It is centrally located and on the beach, not far from the mall and walkable distance to Jaffa. Service is average. Rooms are nice and beds comfortable. Main criticism is that e-mail room connections are s-l-o-w. I've been there twice and would return.
Bedroom: My request to be placed in a non-smoking room placed me in a room with stale smoke odor combined with an obnoxious scent used to mask odors. Also, after unpacking and one night, I found this 'non-smoking' room had an ash trey and matches. The rugs in the bedroom were spotted and worn; the walls were spotted and needed refurbishment.
Not the best experience
My family stayed in the Sheraton Moriah Tel Aviv on June 29-30 2004. We had been touring all over Israel and this was a nice hotel outside as well as great access to the beach. The rooms were tired looking. Our room had the full length glass window broken, but still in place. There were stains on the ceilings and walls. The toilet could not even flush toilet paper. If our family had not been so exhausted we would have looked for another hotel, but we opted to stick it out. The way to beach is 5 minutes down stairs, but it is filthy and stinky the entire walk. We loved the beach, but we will defintely be staying at another hotel down the way next time.
