From the heavily trafficked street, the huge "InterConti," the epitome of old West Berlin, evokes the Louvre with its glass pyramid entrance. In the rooms, modern gray, black, and beige furnishings are offset by pops of color and a rotating wall unit that allows you to watch TV while soaking in a tub. The Club rooms on the seventh and eighth floors have a private check-in area, and come with their own lounge, meeting rooms, and other extras. The spa's saunas and the 14th-floor
restaurant, Hugo's, are incentive to stick around the hotel.
