Ritz-Carlton Berlin: Best Luxury Hotels in Europe

January 24, 2007 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Ritz Carlton Berlin

Kudos to the Ritz-Carlton Berlin, which was named the Best Luxury Hotel in Europe by TripAdvisor's 2006 Traveler's Choice Awards. What makes it so special that outspoken TripAdvisor readers felt compelled to cast their votes? Situated right in the heart of Berlin on the prestigious Potsdamer Platz, the Ritz-Carlton Berlin is pretty posh. Guest rooms feature sumptuous marble bathrooms, with signature amenities and the unique service of a Bath Butler. The exclusive gourmet restaurant, Vitrum, is decked out in finery: inlaid Italian marble floors, mirror covered columns, antique Venetian cabinets, and Murano glass chandeliers. At the Curtain Club hotel bar, guests sip aperitifs next to an open fireplace while listening to live jazz. And the La Prairie Boutique Spa is utterly swoon-worthy, a luxurious oasis with health and wellness center and swimming pool set under a ceiling which sparkles with crystals. Signature treatments include Champagne and Caviar (prepare yourself for a gala evening), The Changing Room (the ideal buildup to a night out in Europe's most exciting city), and Jet Lag Recovery (banish the effects of a long-distance flight and stale airplane air). Of course it's the little details which really distinguish luxury hotels like the Ritz-Carlton Berlin. Case in point: the hotel's Joggers Station which supplies fresh towels, mineral water, fruit, and route maps to lucky guests.
