Berlin’s Grand Hotel Esplanade Reopens As Sheraton
Starwood Hotels announced the opening of the Sheraton Berlin Grand Hotel Esplanade, formerly the Grand Hotel Esplanade. The hotel, which has no connection to the pre-war Hotel Esplanade on the Potsdamer Platz, is in Berlin Mitte, not far from the Kurfürstendamm or Ku’damm, one of the city’s most fashionable shopping streets, as well as near the Potsdamer Platz and the Tiergarten park. The hotel overlooks the Landwehrkanal that runs parallel to the Spree River.
The property’s 354 guest rooms and 40 suites were recently updated and have a very modern design, with oversized windows and river views. Every room has an ergonomic desk chair, flat screen television, and a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed.
Club-level guests have access to the Sheraton Club lounge, which serves breakfast, a variety of beverages throughout the day, and hors d’oeuvres in the evening. The lounge also offers a copier and printer as well as complimentary office supplies.
Harry’s New York Bar, which features a drink menu with over 200 cocktails, is open daily except for Sunday, and the hotel’s restaurant, the Ellipse Lounge, is open every day serving what the hotel calls “crossover cuisine.”
For meetings and events, the hotel has 10 function rooms, the largest, Emporio I & II, being capable of seating 450 people theater style.
