As much as Germany has one of Europe’s biggest economies, the country doesn’t exactly have a lot of luxury city hotels. There’s an exciting update on that front this week, as we’re seeing the opening of what might just be the country’s new best city hotel…
In this post:
Details of the Rosewood Munich, Germany
The Rosewood Munich is opening as of Friday, October 20, 2023. The property has 132 keys, including 73 guest rooms and 59 suites. This looks like my favorite kind of the hotel, in the sense that it’s located in a historic building, but with a modern design.
The Rosewood Munich is housed in two landmark buildings, which were formerly the headquarters of the State Bank of Bavaria, and the grand aristocratic residence Palais Neuhaus-Preysing. The property is located on Kardinal-Faulhaber-Straße, offering easy access to popular destinations like Marienplatz, and the shopping on Maximilianstraße and Theatinerstraße.
When it comes to features and amenities at the Rosewood Munich:
- For wellness, the hotel has a full-service Asaya Spa with six treatment rooms, as well as an indoor pool and fitness center
- For food and beverage outlets, the hotel has Brasserie Cuvilliés (an Alpine-inspired brasserie), Bar Montez, and a lobby lounge
For those not familiar with Rosewood, it’s one of the fastest growing ultra-luxury hotel groups, and I’d say it’s a major competitor to Four Seasons. This will be Rosewood’s seventh property in Europe, and 32nd property around the globe.
I’m impressed by Rosewood’s growth in German-speaking countries. The Rosewood Vienna also recently opened, and on top of that, the former Marriott Luxury Collection Schloss Fuschl is becoming a Rosewood property.
Unfortunately Rosewood doesn’t have a loyalty program, so there’s no creative way to redeem rewards here (other than using points from a program earning cash back equivalent rewards).
Rosewood Munich rates & how to book
What are rates like at the Rosewood Munich? As you’d expect, they vary seasonally — currently I see rates starting at €700 per night during winter, and starting at around €1,150 per night during summer. There’s some variation based on the day of the week, specific popular periods, etc.
I appreciate that Rosewood’s website has a rate calendar, allowing you to easily compare rates for months at a time.
Of course like most luxury hotels, you’re best off booking through a program that can offer more value. In the case of Rosewood, you’re typically best off reserving through a Rosewood Elite travel advisor (you can reach out to [email protected] for help with this).This won’t cost you anything extra, and a Rosewood Elite agent will be able to add extra perks for your stay. What value can a Rosewood Elite travel advisor add?
- Daily breakfast for up to two people per bedroom
- Complimentary one-category room upgrade upon arrival (based on availability)
- A welcome amenity and note
- Additional property specific elite enhanced amenities, which vary by property; these may include a $100 credit per stay
A couple of further things to note:
- Rosewood Elite perks can be combined with whatever promotion Rosewood is offering on its website directly
- Booking through Rosewood Elite is typically better than booking through Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts, because upgrades are prioritized through Rosewood’s own proprietary program; the one benefit of Fine Hotels & Resorts is that it offers guaranteed 4PM check-out, rather than it being subject to availability through Rosewood Elite
The Rosewood Munich is finally opening as of October 2023. The 132-room property is housed in a historic building, and features lots of amenities, including a brasserie, bar, full service spa, and even indoor pool.
It looks to me like the Rosewood may be Germany’s new best luxury city hotel. At a minimum, it should present quite some competition to the Mandarin Oriental Munich, otherwise considered to be the best hotel in the city.
Now, if only we could see some more luxury city hotels in Germany bookable with points, and/or any new luxury hotels in Frankfurt…
What do you make of the new Rosewood Munich?
