Israel reached a global milestone in the hotel industry in 2015 as the Jerusalem Waldorf Astoria was ranked the seventh best hotel in the world in the Conde Nast magazine’s 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards Survey, which included 128,000 rankings.

The hotel’s ranking caught Waldorf Astoria general manager Guy Klaiman by complete surprise. “It caught us by surprise because we didn’t have any advertising in that magazine,” Klaiman told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “We had no relationship with the publication, which means that those who voted for us were obviously our customers.”

The hotel is part of the Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts luxury chain of hotels that are modeled with elegance similar to that of the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The Waldorf Astoria is Jerusalem’s only internationally branded luxury hotel.
