Carlton Tel Aviv
Re-launched following an extensive face-lift this has added a true gem into something of a mega-hotel strip. Perched atop the Tel Aviv marina, the 280 Carlton rooms offer pristine panoramic views of the sea, Jaffa, and the white city as it unfurls to the east. Breaking away from the standard marble and wood façade the Carlton’s renovated lobby sets the aesthetic bar high for luxury hotels in the Tel Aviv with a sleek, contemporary look. Rooms are equally as appealing, each featuring a private balcony for the perfect sunset view. While the inadequate gym facilities, evidently neglected during the renovation, remain an unfortunate blemish. A Royal Executive Lounge offers snacks, hot and alcoholic beverages, and Internet access throughout the day, presenting the perfect setting for informal and business meetings. While Carlton on the Sea – a beautiful open-air deck overlooking the marina – offers an unparalleled venue for breakfast and lazy sunbathing sessions.
