A third Israeli hotel has been added by the Leading Hotels of the World (LHW) to its luxury hotel collection of more than 420 of the world’s greatest properties in over 80 countries. The Mamilla Hotel in Jerusalem joins the King David and American Colony on this prestigious list.

LHW’s list includes intimate city hideaways, ancient castles, safari tent villages, grand palaces and luxury hotels. The association started in 1928 with 38 members.

ISRAEL21c recently featured the hotel’s head sommelier — the youngest in Israel at any major hotel.

In 2010, Condé Nast India Traveller named the 194-room Mamilla Hotel one of the 50 best new hotels in the world, along with Neve Tzedek Hotel in Tel Aviv.
