Dan Hotels continues to offer a quality product and is faithful to its mission to fulfill the expectations of its guests, offering a delightful vacation in each of its hotels. The chain’s hotels are suitable for both leisure and business guests and offer luxury accommodation, exacting standards, personal service, sports facilities, spas, high-class restaurants, conference rooms, special events, and business services.
Company History and Ownership
The history of Dan Hotels goes back to June 1947, when two brothers, Yekutiel and Shmuel Federmann, bought the “Kaete Dan,” a 21-room guesthouse located nearby the Tel Aviv seacoast. In 1982, the company’s shares were listed for trading on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE: DANH). The Federmann family owns some 87% of its shares.
An Experience of Hospitality
The Dan’s flagship property, Jerusalem’s King David, is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World organization, and certainly one of the most spectacular hotels in the world. Its unique architectural structure as well as its turbulent past, has made the King David the official hospitality hotel of the Government of Israel, and the address of high ranking visitors. The chain has three more hotels in Jerusalem, as well as two hotels in Tel Aviv, which are close by the Mediterranean seacoast. The chain’s other hotels are in the centers of Haifa, Caesarea, Herzliya, Eilat and Ashkelon and offer a unique hospitality and service experience with international standards.
Doing Business at the Dan Hotels
The Dan Hotels chain is always adapting itself to new developments in the economic and business sectors in Israel and abroad. For the business guest, it offers well-appointed meeting rooms, business lounges as well as sophisticated communication systems. Hotel guests and business people also enjoy free wi-fi internet access in all rooms and public areas.
The chain’s most extensive convention center is located at the Dan Panorama Hotel in Tel Aviv, with a capacity of up to 3,000 people.
Dan Hotels, in cooperation with QAS, manages the VIP lounges at Ben Gurion Airport. Service is offered to passengers flying with foreign airlines. In addition, the company, along with ORT Israel co-manages the center for culinary arts called “Dan Gourmet,” which is a leader in the hospitality and culinary industry and offers a wide range of courses and workshops.
In addition, the company manages Idit Food Logistics Ltd. and its subsidiary Tiv Taim 2013 Ltd., which offer quality food and services, while maintaining proper nutrition and exacting standards.
At the end of the third quarter of 2017, the Dan Bengaluru India Hotel was opened. This new hotel reflects the next generation of luxury hotels, with its modern and contemporary design, and offers peace and tranquility in Bengaluru, a city that enjoys accelerated growth and is considered part of the Indian Silicon Valley.
The hotel is expected to be one of the leading hotels in Bengaluru because of its exacting standards and will offer its guests warm hospitality in an authentic style and a relaxed and informal atmosphere in an excellent location close to the thriving hi-tech center in the heart of India. In addition to the rich hospitality experience, the new hotel will take its place as one of the best business hotels in Bengaluru offering luxury accommodation, excellent service, first class culinary offerings and exceptional services. Today, with more international companies establishing their headquarters in the city, Bengaluru is becoming one of India’s major tourist destinations attracting both business and leisure travelers.
In May 2018, the new LINK hotel will be opened in Tel Aviv, on Shaul Hamelech Boulevard, and will offer young and fresh hospitality in Tel Aviv – the “non-stop” city. The hotel, based on a new concept of operation and the use of advanced technologies, will appeal to a younger audience and a new generation of guests. The hotel will combine an urban hotel and a shared working space, a place to meet, play, rest, eat and drink. Guests can connect with other guests or connect by themselves with a laptop or with a delightful book.
Dan Hotels has a reputation for more than 70 years of excellence and attention to the smallest of details. Some 60.6% of total bed nights in 2017 were taken by foreign tourists, while the rest were locals. The average occupancy rate of the chain in 2017 was 69.4%. The Dan Hotels chain is proud of its high percentage of returning guests.
