Waldorf Astoria opens in Berlin

Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has unveiled its second European luxury hotel opening in recent months – the highly-anticipated Waldorf Astoria Berlin.

Setting a new standard in luxury for Berlin and the wider German market, the hotel marries the timeless elegance of the legendary flagship, Waldorf Astoria New York, with a unique design inspired by Berlin’s vibrant and contemporary personality.

Featuring 232 luxury guestrooms and suites, the hotel sits within the spectacular new Zoofenster skyscraper, designed by renowned German architect, Professor Christoph Mäckler.

With a total of 32 floors and a height of 118 metres all crafted with stone and glass and the city’s highest suite, the splendid presidential suite on the top floor, the Zoofenster and Waldorf Astoria Berlin are a truly magnificent addition to the skyline of Berlin’s City West.

The hotel’s interior design has been conceived by the renowned Parisian agency, Inter Art Etudes, in a timeless yet contemporary interpretation of art deco style.

From the lobby to the guest rooms and suites, the hotel’s interior design, is worthy of the prestigious legacy of the famed Waldorf Astoria, which opened its doors in 1931 on New York’s Park Avenue.

John Vanderslice, global head of luxury and lifestyle brands for Hilton Worldwide, said: “We’ve experienced unprecedented levels of luxury growth in Europe lately, with five unique Waldorf Astoria hotels now welcoming guests across Europe.

“Waldorf Astoria Berlin is a wonderful addition to our portfolio, offering exquisite luxury that combines culinary excellence with a world-class spa offering and flawless, intuitive service.”

The hotel’s enviable location puts guests on the doorstep of some of the city’s most famous tourist attractions.

This includes the historic church, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche, built as a memorial to Kaiser Wilhelm I, the first man to become emperor of a united Germany.

The glamour of the premium shopping boulevard, Kurfürstendamm, known to locals as Germany’s Champs Elysées is only minutes away and contains a plethora of designer fashion houses.
