Nearby Hotels
Here is a selection of hotels within walking distance of the West Side Jewish Center. No recommendation is implied. Comments are based on the Webmaster's brief visits and conversations with desk staff.
Today's modern hotels with electronic key entry present halachic challenges. Only one of these hotels (Carlton) provide rooms with physical key entry. All, however, expressed a willingness to have a bellman or concierge open rooms for shomer-shabbat (Shabbat-observant) guests. All had open staircases available to reach a room.
If you have stayed at a hotel in this area, and had a pleasant experience, please let us know at info@WestSideJewishCenter.org so we can include it here for other visitors.
