The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem hotel represents a spectacular, Park Avenue-style presence in the heart of Jerusalem - comprising 223 hotel rooms. In its former incarnation as the Palace Hotel Jerusalem, the magnificent Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem hotel building was originally built in 1923, and was widely and deservedly lauded as one of the City’s most beautiful and inspired architectural works.

The Jerusalem ICC – International Convention Center

The Convention Center allows for the best of all worlds! The immense space and numerous halls can be divided according to the needs of each client. This flexibility and the abundance of entrances and exits allow a single major event to be subdivided into as many smaller groups as required. The area can hold up to 10,000 people, with smaller areas comfortably hosting ten or hundreds of guests. We provide seminar rooms, exhibition areas of different capacities and rest areas.


Special money benefits for large conferences/conventions

The Jerusalem Development Authority gives money grants to those who are organizing their international conferences and conventions in Jerusalem.

The conference has to be at least 3 days, with a minimum of 400 participants and at least 15% are foreigners.
