    JERUSALEM — It had been years since I’d ventured any farther than the lobby of the Inbal Hotel in Jerusalem, so when I received an invitation to tour its spa and one of its restaurants, it was hard to say no.

  • Waste Not Want Not

    By Annie Korzen

    September 6, 2011 | 12:34 pm

    I am allergic to waste: I just can’t abide the thought of perfectly usable things being dumped into the garbage.  Besides the ecological consequences, there’s the offense to my compulsively thrifty nature.  If there’s such a thing as reincarnation (which I strongly doubt) I...

  • Summertime Perks for Parents and Kids

    June 8, 2011 | 7:57 am

    What if you were able to check in at a top Israeli hotel this summer, wave goodbye to the kids at the front desk and then, minutes later, find yourself nursing a fruity Mediterranean cocktail by the sun-kissed pool?

    December 4, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    On a recent Caribbean cruise aboard the MSY Wind Surf -- the largest yacht among Holland America's upscale Windstar fleet -- the talk on deck was about war, nannies and the country's best Catholic schools. Sunburned blondes lingered over a four-course dinner, featuring dishes such as...

    Whenever there's a wave of terror in Israel, the nation's hotels come up against a wave of cancellations, and the country's entire tourist industry -- from five-star hotels to souvenir hawkers -- goes into a slump. But in a few months the terror and fear subside, and the tourists...
