This snow-white neo-Renaissance town house near Maximilianstrasse and the Hofbräuhaus is straining to be the most luxe thing in Bavaria—and it may be succeeding. Wherever you look there's one more amenity than is necessary: marble bathrooms with Molton Brown goodies; heated floors, and towel racks; a butler to pack and unpack your bags; Wi-Fi and three phone lines; a bedsheet "menu" with silk quilts; and minibars that are free. Everyone gets fruit, newpapers, and shoe shines (a dying tradition), and kids get toys. The smallest of the 72 rooms is around 330 square feet, and many junior suites have terraces. They're all in a subtle neutral palette primarily using light browns, with a Biedermeier-ish vibe. The rooftop pool, with bar, makes up for the lack of a spa, and there's a serious restaurant, Marks.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"Our room wasn't ready when we arrived early, and they poured us champagne while we waited." "Down a small side street," this hotel brings Asia to central Munich with exotic plants and works of art. Rooms are "high-tech, with remote controls for the window coverings and lights." China Moon Roof Terrace, with a heated pool and pan-Asian and pan-European menu, has spectacular 360-degree views of the city.
