Hotel Vier Jahrezeiten
Heads of state, celebrities, and expense-account aristocrats have flocked to the
Four Seasons since 1858. The hotel is on the Maximilianstrasse, in the heart of
the city's shopping district.
Rooms at this downtown luxury hotel come in three styles: Laura Ashley, Country
House, or Palais. TVs feature Playstation and Internet games, but that doesn't
mean the Bayerischer Hof doesn't respect tradition: It has been family-owned and
operated for more than a century.
Mandarin Oriental Munich
The hotel formerly known as the Rafael is one of Germany's finest. It's also
more intimate than most grand hotels, with only 53 guest rooms and 20 suites in
a renovated 19th Century building that once served as a "Ballhaus" for dances
and other social events. The location couldn't be better: The hotel is in
Munich's historic center, just down the street from the Hofbräuhaus.
