WALDORF ASTORIA BERLIN
History & Story
The Waldorf Astoria is responsible for many innovations in the hospitality industry; it was the first major hotel to offer electricity throughout guest rooms, the first to introduce air-conditioning in all public spaces, the first to offer room service, and the first hotel to host a social charity ball.
These landmark events and attributes, together with the stellar list of guests and events over the decades, have contributed to the Waldorf Astoria’s unparalleled reputation as a source of brilliant innovations and excellence.
After a visit to the hotel, tycoon Conrad N. Hilton wrote a simple note on a clipping while in Texas, “The greatest of them all.” Overwhelmed with the first class service, the attentive employees, and the aura of the hotel, he fulfilled a long wished dream and bought the Waldorf Astoria in 1949. Since then the hotel is part of the Hilton Worldwide Group and is the inspiration for the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts around the world as “the greatest of them all”.
