3 Potsdamer Platz
Tel: 49 30 337 777
Opened in the former no-man's-land between East and West Berlin in 2004, this sandstone, steel, and glass property has "exactly what you'd expect from any Ritz-Carlton in the world," with wood work and a country-club ambience. "Smiling staff go above and beyond." With a show kitchen and sweeping views of Potsdamer Platz, Brasserie Desbrosses is "tremendous though ridiculously expensive."
