Dan Tel Aviv Hotel

The Dan Tel Aviv Hotel is a 5-star hotel in Tel Aviv.[1] According to TIME, it is the “closest Tel Aviv has to a hotel grand dame”.[2] It was the first in the Dan Hotels chain.[3]

It is located on Tel Aviv's seafront, within walking distance of many attractions, including Tel Aviv Port[4] and the Old City of Jaffa. Notable guests have included Bill and Hillary Clinton Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, Madonna, The Rolling Stones, U2, and Lady Gaga.[3]

History[edit]

The original building was built in the 1930s, and started as a small pension called Kaete Dan. It was the first lodging of any kind on the beach in Tel Aviv. For a time it served as the headquarters of Haganah. In June 1947, Yekutiel and Shmuel Federmann bought the building, and adopting the name from the previous owner, they formed the Dan Hotels Corporation.[5] The new owners demolished the original building, and the new hotel was completed in 1953.[3]

In 1986 a new facade was added, in the colours of the rainbow, and designed by Yaacov Agam.[2] In 1994 the King David Tower (height 82 meters) was built, adjoining the south of the hotel. In 2000 the hotel underwent a complete renovation.
