Hilton Worldwide’s luxury brand Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has opened its second European luxury hotel, in Berlin, Germany.
Waldorf Astoria Berlin covers 32 floors and features 232 luxury guestrooms and suites.
Parisian agency Inter Art Etudes has designed the hotel’s interior design as a legacy of Waldorf Astoria, which was opened in 1931 on New York’s Park Avenue.
Waldorf Astoria Berlin features the restaurant ‘Les Solistes by Pierre Gagnaire’ by French chef Pierre Gagnaire.
The hotel’s other exclusive dining and wellness facilities include New York-styled Lang Bar – which offers a range of cocktails and artisan beers; Peacock Alley – which provides signature afternoon teas; and Guerlain Spa Waldorf Astoria.
For meetings and events, Waldorf Astoria Berlin offers a venue with the capacity to accommodate up to 1,200 people.
A 3,550ft² ballroom on the second floor is suitable for weddings, award ceremonies or banquets.
On the sixth floor, five private rooms are available for up to 200 people.
Hilton Worldwide luxury and lifestyle brands global head John Vanderslice said that the company currently has five unique Waldorf Astoria hotels in Europe.
"Waldorf Astoria Berlin is a wonderful addition to our portfolio, offering exquisite luxury that combines culinary excellence with a world-class spa offering and flawless, intuitive service," he added.
Hilton Worldwide EMEA president Simon Vincent said: "Waldorf Astoria Berlin is an outstanding example of the splendour for which the brand is renowned and is a fantastic addition to our multi-brand portfolio in Germany where we now operate 18 hotels across four brands."
Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem and Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam are both slated to open in 2014.
