GREAT NEWS ISRAEL WELCOMES A NEW HOTEL CHAIN JACOB HOTELS
In the downtime when the country was quarantining during Covid-19, a new hotel chain appeared on
The Jacob Hotel Chain includes 5 unique hotels with a total of some 430 rooms covering more than 28,000 sq.m. (more than 300,000 square feet). Jacob Hotels are located in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Tiberias, Nahariya and Hadera. Each excels in its particularized character, and although differentiated from each other they nonetheless share certain traits, such as uncompromising standards, a warm, inviting aura, and top quality service. Each hotel is like a world of its own, each having a specific atmosphere which draws diverse types of guests. In this way, the chain offers a total experience to a wide range of people. Our focus on quality service, styling which pays attention to the finest of details, and the unique atmosphere of vacation felt in these hotels, delights and pampers our guests. Our hotel staff’s courtesy assures guests that they will enjoy an unforgettable experience.
These hotels are privately owned by an Israeli businessman who decided to perpetuate and commemorate his late father’s name by calling the hotel chain after him. The past few months have seen the hotels undergo wide scale upgrades and renovations to the tune of some NIS. 100 million! As the summer season opens, the Jacob Hotel Chain is ready to receive guests and provide outstanding service.
The Jacob Hotel Chain aims to set women in key and senior managerial roles. Some weeks ago the chain appointed Ms. Anat Shaul as CEO of the Ramada Hadera, and Ms. Tali Kadosh began her position as CEO of Sea Life Nahariya a week ago. Out of our 5 hotels, the CEOs of four are women. Overall, the chain’s administration is 80% women.
The chain’s employees are driven by their inherent love of people and their love of hosting. Jacob Hotels offer a warm and caring hosting experience that will make every guest feel wonderful.
Tali Pessach, representing the proprietors: “I'm excited to launch the Jacob Hotel Chain today. It’s Israel’s newest chain, numbering 5 hotels with a national spread earmarked for the Israeli public and its various preferences. Right now we’re examining options for expanding the chain and look forward to Israelis filling our hotels, enjoying themselves, and appreciating quality that is true value for money.”
