Whether you like the classical-modern style or not, this 5-star hotel is the lap of Berliner luxury. The already wonderfully comfortable surroundings were refurbished in a multi-million euro extravaganza at the beginning of 2008, creating a whole new floor, reconstructed wing and a number of deluxe spa suites. Each of the suites has been themed individually with swish fabrics and furnishings, while the standard rooms, though more traditional, still bear the distinctive designer imprint of the recent overhaul. Positioned on the corner of Friedrichstraße and Unter den Linden, the hotel is ideally located close to East Berlin’s designer shops and museums. The Westin Grand also offers a personal butler service – ready to deliver daily newspapers, shine shoes and even accompany guests on shopping trips. Guests often relax on the charming garden patio, enjoying a cocktail as the evening sun sinks slowly to the West.
