Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin
History & Story
The Hotel Adlon owes its name to its original owner, Lorenz Adlon, a native of Mainz and a Berlin restaurant manager of good repute. Adlon invested 20 million gold marks and two years into the creation of the hotel, which opened on 23 October, 1907.
Lorenz Adlon’s vision was to create the most opulent hotel in the world, setting standards previously unseen in the hotel industry. Guests were amazed by the sophistication and comfort: facilities included hot and cold running water, gas and electricity and a refrigeration and cooling system linked into a fountain. There was even a power plant which provided electricity to the 110-volt light bulbs produced specially for the hotel. Shortly after opening, Adlon’s vision was realized when the Hotel Adlon was acknowledged to be „one of the most beautiful hotels in the world‟. Its architecture, interior design and advanced technology were praised across the globe.
