The iconic Waldorf Astoria comes to Berlin later this year. This will be the first new build Waldorf Astoria in Europe. It`s fair to say that this is going to be one of the top luxury hotels in Europe.
Situated in a prime position in the western part of Germany’s capital, the Waldorf Astoria Berlin will be located close to many of Berlin’s attractions, including the Kurfurstendamm shopping district.
Along with 242 guest rooms and suites, the 31-story hotel will feature over 1,100 square metres of dedicated conference and meeting facilities, in addition to a spa and wellness area, a restaurant and bar and on-site parking.
The restaurant could make or break the new hotel. However, the Waldorf Astoria Berlin has partnered with Pierre Gagnaire for a fine dining experience within the hotel. The world-renowned French chef, recipient of 11 Michelin stars at restaurants across the globe, will take on responsibility for the concept and menu seasonality of the 70-cover restaurant, the name of which is yet to be revealed.
The Waldorf Astoria brand is of course famous for The Waldorf Salad, first created in 1896 by the maitre d`hotel, Oscar Tschirky. Less famous perhaps, but as iconic is the Tequila Sunrise. This was created in the 1930s at the Arizona Biltmore Waldorf Astoria.
Eggs Benedict and Thousand Island dressing are also said to have originated within Waldorf Astoria hotels.
