I'm staying in Tel Aviv Dec. 9-11. I selected the Publica Isrotel north of Tel Aviv (Herzliya) for its great rates. Although it's not on the beach, it's apparently in a great location, and an easy walk to the beach. TripAdvisor reviews are great, but I couldn't find the details that a Marriott Rewards insider would know. I couldn't ascertain if this property had a Club Lounge, and what the amenities would be for Gold.
