A "snazzy boutique hotel" with a "retro-futuristic sculptural design," the Hotel Q! in Berlin impresses Lonely Planet and attracts celebrity guests like Drew Barrymore and Brad Pitt. Stays this summer are not priced at Hollywood heights, however, as rates have dropped as much as 50%.
Visit any time through Aug. 30 for $116 per night (89€). Book through Perfect Escapes and secure the following bonuses:
The "space-age white bedrooms" (Elle Decor) boast sinuous furnishings that flow into each other and up into the walls. A spa in the basement features an indoor beach with heated sand and sun loungers.
Up on the surface, the hotel is just off the boulevard Kurfurstendamm, where "shoppers are the life force" (Fodor's). The avenue, in swanky west Berlin, is lined with popular shops, including KaDeWe, one of the world's largest department stores. The hotel is within a mile of the Tiergarten, a Central Park-like greensward that in summer fills with Berliners seeking sun and lawn.
Note: Bookings must be for two nights and are nonrefundable and non-changeable.
