This is a choice, newly renovated business hotel in a prime location across from the Schlossgarten and within easy walking distance from the central rail station. Unimaginative and pricey, but practical. Our deluxe double room fronted the busy street, but we could not hear a thing. The room was opulently and urbanely appointed with dark contemporary woods, white walls, and a black granite bathroom. Flatscreen TVs and high-speed broadband are par for the course. —by Lydia Itoi
