As soon as I made eye contact with the front entrance valet, and I am still maybe 40 feet away walking towards the entrance, he came running to relieve me from my suitcase. I was then shown/escorted to the reception desk with 5 more staff members waiting to help me. A glass of champagne was poured, and I once again was escorted to my room by a staff member, who then explained all different switches that can be found in the room. Some people might say this is "too much", but I think it is proper service. My suitcase came within 5 minutes of me checking into my room (when I am still being debriefed about the switches), and then a vase of flowers, and then a plate of petit fours. My suite faces the Unter de Linden with a view of the Brandenburg Gate (if you stick your head out of the window and look to your left). Although on the second floor, the sound proof windows kept the noise outside. As others have mentioned, the bath products are superb, and the heated floor is a wonderful addition. Room service is prompt. Everybody I have met was extremely courteous, and they also seem to remember my name. I feel very safe at this location with the security presence as well as guests have to parade through the reception area before able to reach the elevators, of which are card keys operated only. The formal restaurant is closed for the week, so I ended up having dinner at their Cafe, which was pretty decent as well. There are plenty of eateries around the neighborhood and walking around that area at night was not a problem either since there are extra securities patroling the embassy district surrounding the hotel. Unlike the Ritz in London where gentlemen guests were to wear ties and jackets, even in the lobby area, I felt at ease wearing jeans and ski jacket. I would pick this over the Ritz Carlton simply based on location and what is around.
