The Drisco Hotel Commemorates The 150th Anniversary Of Jaffa’s First Hotel With The “Sir Hardegg Package”

The Drisco Hotel celebrates the 150th anniversary of its first establishment with the new Sir Hardegg Experience, a travel package that pays homage to Sir Hardegg, one of the hotel’s storied proprietors. The “Sir Hardegg Package” commemorates the 150th anniversary of the “Jerusalem Hotel”, the first hotel in Jaffa and where The Drisco Hotel sits, paying tribute to its first proprietor, Ernst Hardegg.

The new offering combines luxurious accommodations, culinary experiences and unique cultural insight that epitomizes The Drisco Hotel. The Sir Hardegg Experience is available starting January 1, through December 31, 2020.

The Drisco Hotel’s restored property was first built in 1866 by two American colonists, the brothers John and George Drisco. The building was later purchased by Ernst Hardegg, a German Templar hotelier, who opened the hotel’s doors in 1870. After eight years of meticulous restoration led by Israeli architect Naor Mimar, the two buildings were reborn as The Drisco Hotel in spring 2018, transforming the classic architectural wonder into a heritage hotel befitting the modern-day traveler.
The “Sir Hardegg” package at The Drisco Hotel includes:
  • Two-night stay in the hotel’s magnificent Sir Hardegg Suite, a 65-square-meter (700-square-foot) suite featuring a grand master bedroom and a styled living room with views of the Tel Aviv- Jaffa skyline and the inner garden Piazza, and a wrap-around terrace.
  • Complimentary bottle of wine from Drisco Hotel’s George & John restaurant upon arrival.
  • Tasting menu dinner for two at the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant George & John, helmed by Executive Chef Tomer Tal.
  • Expert-guided tour of Tel Aviv-Jaffa’s American Colony and Noga neighborhoods surrounding The Drisco.
The package is available for $2,465.00 (USD) based on double occupancy, and is valid throughout the year of 2020. To reserve “The Sir Hardegg Package” and to learn more about The Drisco Hotel, visit
