Sofitel Munich BayerpostHoused in a former Bavarian Royal Post Office building, the swank Sofitel Munich Bayerpost oozes upscale class from its Neoclassical facade right through to its contemporary interior. The 339 rooms merge classic and contemporary elements and feature bright fabrics, oversized photos, and materials such as leather, natural woods, and glass—plus comfy beds and natural-stone bathrooms. The additional 57 suites kick things up a few notches with extra indulgences, more space, and striking interiors that veer refreshingly far from five-star formality. Specialty suites with names like Scheherazade and Imperial take inspiration from the Old World and Old Hollywood, respectively; the Family suites have two floors; and the two So FIT suites come with an in-room treadmill, cardio bike, and free weights. If you can tear yourself away from such plush surroundings, you’ll also find a fantastic spa (with a heated, spiral-shaped pool and pampering treatments) and three suitably upscale dining and drinking options.
