Legendary Hotel Atlantic In Hamburg, Germany Joins Marriott’s Autograph Collection (Cat 5) In January


With the Hotel Atlantic a fantastic addition to the Marriott hotel portfolio in Hamburg, Germany is going to join the list of Bonvoy redemption options next month as a Category 5 property of the Autograph Collection.

The Atlantic is an institution in Hamburg and one of Germany’s original Grand Hotels that is well known throughout the country and even beyond Germany.

It already shows up on Marriott’s website and is surprisingly cheap as a Category 5, located next to the Alster, just steps away from the Le Meridien Hamburg which is located right down the street.

OPENING IN January 2021

The Hotel Atlantic opened in 1909 as a classic grand hotel for first-class passengers of famous luxury cruise liners. The magnificent building located on the shores of Lake Alster offers 221 rooms, including 32 suites, with timeless elegance and abundant luxury. Three restaurants ranging from casual to gourmet dining feature regional and interantional flavors while the famous Atlantic Bar excites with creative cocktails and elegant Afternoon Tea. Splendid function rooms and graceful salons provide a multi-faceted selection of stylish settings for events with up to 1,200 guests. Also amongst the jewels of this Hamburg landmark is a private cinema.

The hotel isn’t bookable yet, I suspect it will take some time until shows up in the search results of available hotels. For now it only shows as “opening in January 2021” but even beyond that date it’s not possible to make a reservation right now.

Here are some impressions from the Marriott website:

It’s been a few years since I stayed there last time but I remember their mattresses were very uncomfortable. Maybe they got new ones since then?

In any case I’m looking forward to this fantastic redemption option as I’m visiting my sister in Hamburg 1-2x per year and this together with the Le Meridien as well as Park Hyatt is my new preferred stay combination in the city.

Category 5 means it’ll be possible to credit card certificates at this property too.


The Atlantic in Hamburg is going to join the Marriott family of Hotels as part of the Autograph Collection sometime in January 2021.

This could easily be one of the more exciting hotel openings of next year especially as far as value is concerned, although the price has come down a bit in recent years (especially now during the pandemic) but usually the Atlantic commands rates around 250 Euro per night/standard room. Very good value on points!
