Westin arrives in Hamburg with property designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Bost Group

The hotel is located within the Elbphilharmonie, a landmark that has two concert halls and luxury residences in Hamburg.

Westin Hotels & Resorts has made its Hamburg debut. The Westin Hamburg is located within the Elbphilharmonie, a new architectural landmark that has two concert halls and luxury residences.

Designed by Swiss architect Herzog & de Meuron, with interior design led by Berlin-based Bost Group, The Westin Hamburg has a brick-and-glass façade that brings in plenty of natural light. The façade, inspired by the hotel's waterfront location, includes floor-to-ceiling windows for top views of the city.

The building where the hotel is located in the Speicherstadt warehouse district was once a historic riverside warehouse that was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
