Putting on the Ritz in a Berlin Winter
We seem to be having an international day here so we are going to continue on over to Germany. If you're staying at the Ritz-Carlton in Berlin and enjoying the excellent restaurant, spa, pool and lounge facilities, it might be almost irrelevant that you could also go outside and be within short walking distance of half of what's worth seeing in Berlin, like the Reichstag, the Sony Center and Potsdamer Platz.
And if you're thinking of spending the Christmas or New Year season there, it's all food, wine and merriment right within the hotel walls.
The hotel has two packages going on right now. The first is "Winter Magic" which is $250 per couple per night and includes accommodation in a superior double plus buffet breakfast, more than enough to warm you up if you decide to brave the outdoor winter chill. This deal is good through Jan. 7.
Or you might prefer the "Grand Night at the Ritz-Carlton" package which is a little pricier at $800 per person, and valid from December 30 to January 1. For your "Grand Night" you actually get two nights' accommodation, a ticket to the Grand Ball for New Year's Eve, constant rounds of champagne, a four-course dinner, a late-night buffet on NYE and breakfast each day. Or you can opt to have the hotel brunch instead if you're having trouble getting the eyes open after the NYE Ball.
