Concierge.com's insider take:

Unapologetic and flamboyant opulence is the name of the game at this five-star property, set across from the 18th-century cathedrals of Gendarmenmarkt. In fact, stepping into the lobby, with its gleaming rose-marble floors, gilded mirrors, and dripping crystal chandeliers, may throw the unsuspecting visitor into a sort of luxury stupor. The lobby and bar are cushiony, with plush carpets, tasseled ottomans, and brocade fabrics, and the 156 guest rooms and 39 suites are among the largest in the city. Some have Juliet balconies for enjoying the view, as well as elegant color schemes and antique accents, such as Biedermeier writing desks. The room service includes "mobile boutique" delivery from the nearby Hugo Boss flagship store, where a salesperson brings a selection of clothing to your room for you to browse through. The pomp and ceremony culminates at Fischers Fritz, the much-lauded onsite restaurant, where Homard à la presse (lobster with a mousse from its pressed juice) is prepared tableside with the aid of a Christofle silver press, one of only four in the world.

Guest rooms in soft colors, with Biedermeier furniture and optional classical music that's "the appropriate accompaniment," nab perfect scores for this "intimate hotel" on the historic Gendarmenmarkt Square. Marble dominates the public spaces; the well-stocked bar specializes in inventive snacks such as lobster cocktail with Piedmont cherries and toast. "We still talk about breakfast's fantastic cheese and meat trays."
