The hotel was built in 1895 and has been lovingly restored. If you love old buildings, you are guaranteed to love this hotel. The renovation of this hotel inspired others and marked the beginning of the revitalization of historic downtown Berlin. Did you ever see Runaway Bride? Many of the scenes were filmed here, so you too can sit on the same porch as Richard Gere and have a drink and often listen to some live music. You can eat here at The Drummer’s Cafe, dining inside or out or on the screened in porch if you can’t decide.
