Luxury Hotels


Let’s START THE DAY RIGHT, says Girlahead. Berlin’s Oriana themes its wake-up meal as Breakfast Club – and Sunday is Lazy Breakfast Club: supplement the €33 basic-continental with dozens of extras, perhaps a glass of Bouvet Ladubay Saumurloire  2018 Cremant Brut Rosé, €8.

GIRLAHEAD IS IMPRESSED, too, that looking at details of Lazy Breakfast Club leads straight through to The Oranienburger Strasse Synagogue, contemporary liturgy, and shiurim (learning sessions) on Jewish perspectives on socio-political themes.  ORANIA. BERLIN HOTEL.RESTAURANT.BAR.CONCERTS offers all that.  Run by culinarian Philipp Vogel and his marketing-genius wife Jennifer, both of whom came from The Adlon Kempinski, the 41-room hotel has evolved out of a 1914-vintage café – it now has a 60-seat restaurant, open from 6.30 a.m., and a fifth-floor salon, with library and a STEINWAY PIANO. As well as live jazz on Tuesdays and Thursdays there are six unique concerts every week.  What else does Girlahead like? The real-log fire in the lobby, visible through 360 degrees, is a definite plus.

ORANIA IS PART OF ITS COMMUNITY.  All luxury hotels should be essential to surrounding life. You certainly find that at EQUINOX HOTEL in New York’s Hudson Yards.  Hear Equinox CEO Chris Norton, here:
