The Drisco Hotel’s story is more of a fascinating journey of luxury and elegance, beginning on September 22, 1866. On that day, 40 American families, including the Drisco brothers, arrived at the Jaffa port after a long and exhausting voyage across the ocean. While most of the other families to arrive dappled in the agricultural industry, the Drisco brothers dreamed of building a hotel in the newly founded American Colony.
One of the properties they purchased would soon become the world-renowned Jerusalem Hotel. Considered one of the greatest hotels in the region until 1940, the Jerusalem Hotel hosted writers, army generals, and royalty including Mark Twin, General Allenby, and German Emperor Wilhelm II. However, multiple wars soon caused the building to be abandoned, burned, and neglected for decades. It was only in 2018, after over 10 years of rigorous restoration work that this hotel was able to be reopened. Known today as The Drisco Hotel, in honor of the legacy of its American founders, you will be sure to experience the glory and glamor of the hotel’s history together with the luxury and comfort of its present.
