Lawrence of Arabia. General Edmund Allenby. Tony Blair. And you? The American Colony Hotel in Jerusalem has always had an air of exquisite and quietly stated grandeur to it. Inside a walled compound, the hotel presents itself from the moment of entrance to the parking lot as something from the early part of the last century. That’s no surprise – the hotel was founded by Baron Plato Von Ustinov in 1902. Yes, the name Ustinov rings a bell, he was the grandfather of renowned English actor and writer Peter Ustinov.

This year the American Colony is hosting its annual Christmas and holiday treats: a special six-course dinner for Christmas Eve and a unique seven-course New Year’s Eve dinner, and there is much more on offer according to the staff.
