My Ethereal Experience at Dresden’s Most Stylish Luxury Hotel
I was invited to stay at the Gewandhaus Dresden through a collaboration I actively sought out, as I knew my audience needed to hear about this beautiful hotel. The opinions expressed in this blog post are, as always, my own.
Some hotels stay in your mind long after you’ve checked out, and the Gewandhaus Dresden is one of them.
This Dresden luxury hotel provides an unparalleled experience when it comes to style and sophistication. But what truly drew me in was the feeling of endless possibility, brought about by staying in what could have been a Venetian palace with baroque influences, in a world of indulgence beyond temporality.
It was a pure pleasure simply to wander the halls of the Gewandhaus, which wrap around a large inner courtyard with a glass roof. It was even more of a delight to unwind in my marble bathroom’s whirlpool.
And breakfast in the sun-soaked atrium helped me start each day inspired. Those are just some of the images that remain in my mind as I reflect upon my stay at Dresden’s 5-star hotel par excellence.
If you are looking for a lavished Dresden boutique hotel, I highly recommend the Gewandhaus. To understand the magic of this Autograph Collection Hotel, read on.
History of the Gewandhaus Dresden
If you are familiar with the Autograph Collection, part of the exclusive Marriot Bonvoy group, you’ll know that these hotels offer more than luxury. They provide a unique invitation to discover a destination within a destination, that is, in line with their motto “exactly like nothing else”.
The Gewandhaus Dresden joined the Autograph Collection in 2015, but its history has been interwoven with the city for centuries. The building itself saw the light in 1768 and lived many lives before becoming a high-end hotel. Throughout the 18th century, it even housed an important clothing market (with Gewand meaning garment in German).
Today’s Gewandhaus exudes that same joie de vivre one might expect at a bustling cloth atelier – but with endlessly sophisticated touches.
Lavish Rooms and Suites
The Gewandhaus Dresden offers three main room types: standard (although there is nothing standard about them!), superior, and junior suites.
I was lucky enough to stay in a 50 sqm suite, which felt more like an apartment than a hotel room, with a king-sized bed, separate sitting area and office, coffee station and – get this – a walk-in closet. Plus, there was plenty of space to pace back and forth as I like to do while on calls, and numerous windows ensured a ton of natural light.
