BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2013) - The unique experiences at The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin, have been globally recognised by readers of two of the world's most prestigious travel magazines.

In Travel + Leisure magazine's World Best Awards 2013, readers voted The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin the best large city hotel in Europe and awarded it fifth place in the list of the world's top 100 best hotels. Readers of Condé Nast Traveler, meanwhile, voted The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin the best hotel in Northern Europe.

"These magazines are internationally renowned with an exceptionally discerning readership, so we are delighted to receive such recognition," said Robert Petrović, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin. "Readers also selected our hotel above some of the most exclusive landmark properties in the world and that is a wonderful tribute to the passionate contribution of everybody at The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin."

Awarding The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin first place in the large city hotel category of Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards 2013, the magazine highlighted the welcoming Art Deco ambience of hotel, the indulgent décor of rooms and picked out the unique range of cocktails at The Curtain Club and the relaxed, traditional French-style atmosphere of Brasserie Desbrosses for special mention.

"We asked readers to cast their votes for the hotels that define the very best in travel," says Travel + Leisure. "The resulting list is not only a go-to hotel resource for planning your next trip, but also reveals the destinations that are important now."

Voting The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin the number one hotel in Northern Europe, readers of Condé Nast Traveler awarded high marks for location "on Potsdamer Platz, overlooking the Tiergarten" and for service, describing "great helpful staff."

Magazine readers were also impressed by the luxury hotel's "heated bathroom floors... amenities that include luxury strollers and mini Mercedes pedal cars" as well as the show kitchen of Brasserie Desbrosses.

"Whether it is a bath butler creating the perfect bath, a cocktail mixologist conjuring up a unique drink, the sanctuary of a private balcony or simply a warm welcoming smile at the door, at The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin we are passionate about creating unforgettable memories in the heart of the capital," said General Manager Robert Petrović. "I'm naturally delighted that this passion has been recognised by two such important travel magazines."
