A little history
The hotel’s original building was built in the 1930s. In its first days it was a small guest house called Kaete Dan, the first of any type of lodging on the Tel Aviv beachfront. In 1947, brothers Yekutiel and Shmuel Federmann purchased the building, and kept the name; they later formed the Dan Hotels Corporation.
The hotel has undergone several revamps, the last was in 2000 when it underwent a total make over.
