Sheraton Tel Aviv Hotel and Towers
Travel Blogs from Tel Aviv
I would say "it's that time of year again", except it is not, as fall travel has now been replaced by summer travel which has me on the road in July, a full two months earlier than usual. It seems early is the new normal, so, here we are.
Today I am one week in to what will eventually be a 17 day trip ( a new …

Day 4. Sightseeing. Weather is warm and sunny. Night storms that blew in from our slightly opened balcony door blew down a mirror and a large ceiling tile.

We arrived in a 9-passenger Renault sort of van sort of Verizon contractor truck. Kara thought the 6-seater I reserved was too small. The next size up was not available on such short notice. Since I …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
A standard Sheraton in a great location. Directly across from the beach, and within easy walking distance to other attractions. Breakfast buffet was robust and the dining room overlooks the ocean. Pool area is also nice. Decent gym as well.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Tel Aviv Hotel and Towers
I recently stayed at the Sheraton Tel Aviv twice in a two week period, (late June and Early July). I found the location to be superb, right on the beach/prominade, in the heart of the tourist area. The staff was helpful and curteous, and a problem with a late checkout charge was handled to my satisfaction. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, although the staff at breakfast is awful when it comes to serving tea and coffee, their only function aside from busing the tables. After receiving your coffee/tea, you must wait up to 15 minutes while they find cream/lemon. Why they don't leave cream on every table in the first place is a mystery. Making the coffee self serve as well would speed the breakfast up considerably, since they are stingy with refills.
I have stayed at this hotel before and the one key lesson is to make sure that you receive a room on floor 13 or higher. The rooms below this floor are not refurbished and are sadly dated. The decor induced motion sickness in both myself and my travelling companion. As the other members of my party had what are termed 'deluxe rooms' I could see the difference and went to complain. For $20 extra per night we moved up to a higher floor and had a much better stay as a result. The staff will not volunteer these rooms unless you ask for them!
A nice hotel
I just returned from the Sheraton Tel Aviv and thought it was very nice. Its not a resort or posh hotel, but good for business or basic family trips. The room was clean and comfortable. I also heard no noise from other rooms or hallways and the place was pretty busy. My reservation was messed up when I arrived but the staff fixed it immediately and was very friendly.
From what I could see all Tel Aviv hotels are a bit run down and weather beaten. I would stay at the Sheraton again.
With a choice of 'four-star' properties along the Tel Aviv coastline, you would think that the competition would keep the hotels on their toes. Apparently not.
Good enough but nothing special
My sister and I stayed at the Sheraton Tel Aviv for 4 nights last week.The hotel is located right on the beach and our room on the 9th floor had lovely views.On arrival we were upgraded to what we were assured was a newly decorated"executive"room.Whilst it would have been fine enough for a standard room this really disapointed as an upgrade.Not very spacious and to be honest a bit tired looking Adequate covers it I guess. The room was very clean ,the staff friendly and the breakfast varied and fresh but in all the hotel lacks that x factor that separates the good enough from the exceptional.Fine enough if the deal is to your liking.
Slightly dated 4/5 star property but excellent service / location more than made up for that. Pictures on the Sheraton website are a little generous - like all Tel Aviv beachfront hotels, there is actually a road between the hotel and the beach which is easy enough to cross. We had a superior room with a seaview and whilst the room itself was unexceptional and a little dated, the view was great. Balconies are too thin to be much use, but it's lovely being able to open up the sliding doors and look out onto the beach as the sun comes down. Breakfast was typical for Israel (which means it was extensive - no lunch required!). The pool was ok, nothing special and like the hotel, a little dated. The location was excellent, being at what seemed to be a more quiet part of the beach but not too far from cafes. Staff were very friendly and certainly added to our stay. All in all, a very safe choice I would say, and in our case excellent value for money. If you're looking for something slightly posh(er) check out the Dan Tel Aviv.
After reading the reviews it was hard to tell where to stay in Tel Aviv. Although I frequent Israel, I have been told that the Hilton is being overshadowed by its competitors down the beach. Well this is what I found.
We stayed there for two days when we first got to Israel. It was fine, just what you'd expect from a large urban hotel, clean, comfortable beds, nice bathroom, helpful staff.
The hotel is well located close to the beach and city centre. Our room was large and had a nice view; looked at the beach and towards the old city of Jaffa.
The lobby was pleasant. The pool was also very nice. My parents received a Senior Citizen rate. An expensive hotel but the promotion made it affordable.
The cleaning ladies were a lot of fun. They were recent immigrants from Turkmenistan or Tajakstan I believe. All the staff were very nice.
I recommend this hotel.
City break in Tel Aviv
We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in May. The room was spacious and the hotel had a lovely relaxed feel to it with very professional staff. The security on the door was comforting, but not overbearing and as the hotel wasn't too full we had the pool and sun deck almost to ourselves. Breakfast was good - the usual array of Israeli goodies! The hotel is 2 minutes from the beach, although crossing the road to get there can be a trial. I would definately recommend the hotel for its location and amenities.
