The Westin Grand Berlin

Built in 1987, the lobby’s open atrium, Italian-marble columns, chandeliers, glass dome, and grand stairs recall the original use of the building, as the Imperial shopping arcades of the 19th century. Families with children are welcome and special services can be arranged.

DINING

Guests of the hotel enjoy a complimentary international breakfast each morning.

Friedrichs – The restaurant serves sophisticated regional cuisine in a formal atmosphere. Chandeliers, light green patterned wallpaper, wooden paneling, and private booths offer the opportunity for a discrete and relaxed lunch or dinner. A big glass window to the kitchen area allows guests to observe the preparation of some of the dishes. During summertime the restaurant and the Lobby expand their service to the terrace on Friedrichstrasse.

Stammhaus – Stammhaus is a typical Berlin pub with an intimate atmosphere. Dark-wood furniture and paneling and green and dark red leather seats create an historic marine style. The local delicacy, Eisbein mit Sauerkraut (beef with sauerkraut), is served, as well as other Berlin specialties and German beer. Open for lunch and dinner.

Lobby Lounge & Bar – The hotel lobby is dominated by the atrium and the grand stairs. Italian marble columns and floors, chandeliers, original banisters, and the ornamental blue and rose glass dome recall the 19th-century Imperial shopping arcades of the original building. The dark-wood Lobby Bar serves coffee, drinks, and snacks until the last guest leaves. The relaxed atmosphere attracts businesspeople, families, and tourists, as well as locals listening to the live piano music in the evening.

Coelln – This friendly restaurant offers a breakfast buffet to guests and members of the public. A wide selection of international dishes is available.
