    Autograph Collection, Marriott International’s evolving portfolio of independent hotels, announced it will debut in Germany later this year with the opening of the 87-room Hotel am Steinplatz in Berlin. Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, the historic icon will re-open following an extensive renovation after first opening as a hotel in 1913. Hotel am Steinplatzjoins a number of Autograph Collection properties currently scheduled to open in Europe this year, helping expand the collection’s current portfolio to fifteen hotels in Europe and more than 40 hotels worldwide.With the original building having first opened its doors in 1907, Hotel am Steinplatz has a fascinating history as an exclusive meeting point for artists, writers, philosophers and even aristocracy. It was designed by renowned architect, August Endell, who also designed the famous Hackesche Hoefe in Berlin. With its heritage listed façade and beautifully recreated interior, the hotel offers a potent mix of historical charm and modern sophistication, making it a prime destination in Germany’s historic capital.

    Each Autograph Collection hotel is thoughtfully selected for its distinctive identity and original features. The collection comprises a dazzling array of beautiful and iconic properties such as Boscolo Budapest in Hungary and The Algonquin in New York City. Autograph Collection launched in 2010 as an opportunity for independent hotel owners to reach millions of travellers through access to Marriott International’s extensive network of global consumers. Autograph Collection also provided Marriott International entry into a new segment of the hospitality market, capturing both leisure and business travelers who sought more unique and independent hotel experiences.

    The boutique property is uniquely located within walking distance of West Berlin’s main attractions and the city’s largest shopping street, Kurfurstendamm. Occupying a tranquil position in a picturesque residential neighbourhood, the hotel is surrounded by various theatres and opera houses, making it a popular destination for travellers and artists. Inside, the hotel has been renovated to the highest of standards with 84 stunning guestrooms, three suites, restaurant, and stylish lobby lounge & bar. Other features include a spa, fitness room and meeting space.
