Where to stay in the German capital? Here's a run-down of some of our favorites:
Hotel de Rome: Housed in a historic bank building (with the bank vault converted into a pool) and boasting panoramic views of the city's attractions, this hotel is a member of the prestigious Rocco Forte Collection. Enough said.
Hotel Adlon Kempinski: A fixture on the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List, this illustrious hotel is actually offering a special package to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Berlin Wall's demise, which includes a guided city tour of Berlin's historic sites.
Kempinski Hotel Bristol: The first five-star hotel to be rebuilt after the war and a symbol of Berlin.
Ritz-Carlton Berlin: The posh hotel's La Prairie Spa pool is pictured at right. Bathrooms in the guestrooms are just as sumptuous and spa-like.
Radisson SAS: Stocked with 2,500 exotic fish, the enormous lobby AquaDom is the world's largest cylindrical aquarium.
Hotel Concorde: The sleek hotel is all about design with stylish minimalist interiors with lots of contemporary art.
