MARITIM HOTEL BERLIN
The Maritim Hotel Berlin is part of the ’new” Berlin revival. Opened in 2005, the hotel which refers to itself as Classic Superior Class is a fresh and modern accommodation of warm ambient colors, polished granite and glossy marble. The glittering lobby of formal angular lines of bright yellow and black trim with sparkling chandeliers is reminiscent of Berlin’s golden age of the roaring 1920’s with a completely contemporary twist. The Maritim Hotel Berlin is located in the diplomatic quarter, just south of the Tiergarten Park, a few blocks from the Potsdamer Platz, surrounded by foreign diplomatic missions. and across the street from the notorious Bendler Block, one of the few remaining buildings from the Nazi era with its resistance memorial (see Bendler Block Resistance Museum). The street of the hotel’s address, Stauffenbergstrasse is named for Von Stauffenberg of the Valkyrie Hitler assassination plot - remember Tom Cruise in an eyepatch?
Like most of the hotels in the Maritim group the Maritim Berlin features superior service with large rooms of elegant unique design, a classic meets modern style with rich wooden furnishings and spacious marble bathrooms. Suites in the tower look out on the metropolis of Germany’s vibrant capital city. The Presidential at the Maritim Berlin is the largest single hotel suite in Berlin featuring 2 private terraces and its own sauna spa. It is likely that a president or two might actually stay, or at least an ambassador. Guests who stay in the superior category rooms have access to the private “Berliner Salon” lounge, with breakfast, snacks and beverage served throughout the day.
Restaurants at the Maritim feature “front cooking” where the craftsmanship of the gourmet kitchen is part of the dining experience. The Grand Restaurant M specializes in Berlin original and traditional dishes as well as an international menu with terrace seating. The Champagne breakfast buffet is served in the Restaurant Maritim. The stylish “Le Bar” lounge assembles Berlin’s top bartenders and live piano music for a cozy nightspot atmosphere.
