With the opening of Waldorf Astoria Berlin in December 2012, the famous hotel brand Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts celebrated its debut in Germany. The design of the hotel is inspired by the timeless elegance of Waldorf Astoria New York, the legendary flagship of the hotel brand. Waldorf Astoria Berlin presents unique offers in Germany: Germany's only award-winning Guerlain Spa Berlin, "The Library" on the 15th floor and spacious suites with spectacular views over Berlin guarantee unforgettable impressions. Another highlight signifies the exclusive Presidential Suite – the highest suite in the city – with unique vistas of Berlin's skyline. The hotel with 232 rooms and suites is located in the 118 meters tall Zoofenster building which was designed by renowned German architect Professor Christoph Mäckler and established as the City West's new landmark. Centrally located at Zoologischer Garten, numerous tourist attractions of the capital are just steps away from the hotel, amongst them the Berlin Zoo, the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and the movie premiere theatre Zoo Palast. The famous shopping boulevard Kurfürstendamm with many restaurants and entertainment facilities, and exclusive brand and designer stores as well as the KaDeWe, the largest department store in Continental Europe, are also in close proximity.
