Among the 78 suites, one in particular stands out: the 185 sqm Royal Suite, so named following Queen Elizabeth II’s stay in 2015. In addition to fine views, it features hand-crafted parquet de Versailles flooring made from old oak, complemented by antique wall coverings of hand-painted silk. And for those not booked to stay in this room, a concierge may be able to arrange a quick tour if it’s unoccupied.
Berliners and visitors alike still come to the Adlon to celebrate special occasions in one of the city’s best-known gastronomic restaurants: the Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer. This estimable eatery is named after the hotel’s founder, and it has been consistently awarded two Michelin stars for its European fine dining. For more casual fare, the Brasserie Quarré serves a rather memorable version of a currywurst, the city’s signature sausage, sprinkled with edible gold. The hotel’s in-room dining and mini bars are also an ode to Berlin’s gastronomic renaissance, with locally crafted beers, chocolates and popcorn available alongside traditional dishes, such as Frikadellen (meatballs).
