The Westin Grand Berlin is a wonderful hotel. Clean and comfortable, it provides quick access to the museum island, but if you rely on a grocery store for provisions, you are locked into the wonderful and overpriced Galeries Lafayette. There are better locations in Berlin.
Beyond the location, with limited selections of restaurants of food provisioning, we had a problem with the door lock. Twice our key would not allow entry, then we discovered the door would no longer lock. After a second instance of the door not locking we insisted on a change in room. The staff moved us from a generously proportioned room to one what was half the size (admittedly with a view of the Reichstag dome, the flag flying over the Russian embassy and the flags of the American embassy. Nice view, but when packing for our return to America there was little room to move about the room with two small suitcases on the floor.
The restaurant staff was wonderful, the concierge always helpful and the hotel very impressive (see The Bourne Supremacy).
