Hotel Fourteen, nicknamed 'Kibbutz Fourteen', was a residential hotel above the Copacabana Club, owned by Fanny and Ruby Barnett, who put the hotel at the disposal of David Ben-Gurion, who lived and worked there on his visits to run a weapons pipeline from the United States to Palestine.
Rudolph Sonneborn, Manhattan-based petrochemical industrialist, was the key figure in the operations, and met frequently with David Ben-Gurion at the hotel, and in the El Patio Room, at the Hotel McAlpin.
