Hi leader

For a possible hotel project in Berlin, that will dedicate itself to
the rich political history of the city, I am looking for examples in
other capitals.

We want to attract this huge number of visitors, that come to visit
parliaments, historical places and interest in the current political
happening. That includes guests staying in the city because of their
work for the goverment and related businesses.

I need an overview of successful businesses, dedicated to the target
audience of these people, going further than offering tours. Like
restaurants, cafes, stores or (privately run) places to inform or
discuss. I do not expect to find other hotels, that try to attract
this audience, but would love to find examples. No problem if you
limit your search to capitals in English speaking countries.

Best from Berlin

Dear Thorsten, 

Living myself in Berlin, I could understand how you reached such an
idea. The hotels I could think of that use a "theme", usually use a
historical theme and less use expressive political themes, that might
be bad for business. Hotels without a "theme", well, it is not clear
how you'll manage to attract audience better than Adlon or Swissotel.

As for people who come in order to work in Berlin's political
institutions, what they might need and usually is offered in large
capitals: office services (very important, incl. communication
services); clothing services (suits, tailors, etc.); reference
services (legal library, access to Internet); conference/meeting
rooms. As for cafes, restaurants and those kind of services, it seems
to me that high profile restaurants, where politicians usually meet
(Vau?), are ones that gain their name and then get the political
visitors and vice versa.
