Grand Hyatt boss sings Berlin’s praises “Enjoy the city while doing business at IFA” says Heddo Siebs The Grand Hyatt Berlin is among a number of top hotels that can be found in the centre of Berlin. Heddo Siebs, manager of the Grand Hyatt Berlin, whose CEO Fred Hürst received the Best Hotelier Of The Year Award for 2010 has been asked by IFA International what types of client the hotel is hosting during this year’s IFA. “The leading consumer electronics companies attending IFA are our traditional customers while the show is on in Berlin,” Siebs said. “They enjoy both the luxury aspects of our hotel, as efficiency of our business facilities. As the high quality service that we offer our guests are also inspired by the contemporary architecture and design of Grand Hyatt Berlin. When one deals with high-end customers, culture and style are as important as excellent service.” Heddo Siebs, Hotel Manager Grand Hyatt Berlin The Where To Go In Berlin section of IFA International is designed to help IFA visitors enjoy the city when they are not hard at work. Heddo Siebs says that it is also the responsibility of a good hotel. “While it’s important for us to look after our guests while they are at the hotel, it is also important that they enjoy the city too. Berlin offers some incredible places to visit, like Potsdamer Platz – which is the 'Platz to be'! There’s great entertainment around the city, and some truly innovative eating concepts like our restaurants mesa and Vox. I would recommend that guests stay longer with us, and enjoy Berlin before and after the show.” Situated next to Potsdamer Platz in the Mitte district of the city, Grand Hyatt Berlin is within walking distance of key city landmarks the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, the Tiergarten and the Philharmonic Hall. 44
