Diplomatic Luxury on the Alster

Intercontinanal on Hamburg's Alster Lake photoThe Hotel Intercontinental was the site of my first stay in Hamburg, so I may have a personal bias born of nostalgia. It was the week that Princess Diana was killed in Paris. Hamburg’s Hotel Intercontenental is located in the city’s upscale residential neighborhood on the upper Alster Lake and about a block from the British and American Consulates. Flowers had nearly covered the gates and fences of the mansion where Britain’s diplomatic mission resided. A memory hard to forget. The proximiity of embassies is no accident. The Intercontinental Hotels & Resorts group began life following the route of the Pan American Airways “Clipper” service after WWII, building unique individual hotels in international capitals to host dignitaries and exclusive travelers, princes and presidents, the first truly international hotel brand in the world. Hotels in the chain include famous symbols of luxury accomodation like the Mark Hopkins in San Francisco and The Barclay in New York and The Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C..
