When I was in Israel, I planned most my stay with the Inbal Jerusalem Hotel. I actually have stayed there a lot and it is a very nice hotel. The reasons I personally like this hotel is likely different from others. For me, it is between the Sheraton hotel (which just changed names) and the Inbal. The Inbal wins for a couple reasons, but most important to me is that my laptop fits in the in-room safe. At the Sheraton, my laptop will not fit in the safe.
Okay, enough about that. When I was there, I was asked if I can meet with a few of the people from the hotel. One was sick and couldn’t make it but I did meet with others from the marketing team. We sat in the lobby and talked shop.
Here is a picture of the Online Marketing Manager of the hotel, Pinny after our meeting:
So you are probably asking, why didn’t we have the Inbal as the venue for SphinnCon Israel?
(1) Inbal was booked for those two weeks
(2) JCT already said okay
(3) I am sure the Inbal is pricey, but who knows, maybe they will give us SEOs a nice break for next year.
In any event, I highly recommend the Inbal hotel for it’s location, accommodations, hospitality and the size of their in-room safes. 😉
