Herod (Tel Aviv)


Jerusalem, Masada, Caesaria –in Israel, it seems, there’s no escaping that antique bad boy. This hotel’s on a swank bit on the Tel Aviv beach. King Herod sits alongside Hilton, sits alongside Sheraton, etc. A perverse piece of cultural memory. I heard that at the hotel spa, you can soak yourself in tubs of honey?
