Fodor's Review

What used to be Europe's tallest water tower is now an independent, 11-story luxury hotel that's welcomed guests like Brad Pitt and fashion mogul Wolfgang Joop. The neoclassical look of the 140-year-old brick exterior remains, while the interior is modern and sedately restful. Visitors to the restaurant "La Vision" ($$$$) will find a daily-changing menu of Continental haute cuisine and a wraparound balcony with 360-degree views of the city. For lighter fare, the hotel

runs the bizarrely named d/\blju 'W' on the ground floor ($$). The only thing left to be desired is a huge pool, but swim fanatics can head to the Agrippabad, next door.
