The Stuttgart hotels come in a wide range of prices and styles, and whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, reserving a room at one of the city’s great properties will help ensure you have the perfect trip to Germany. For starters, it’s a wonderful city—from cultural museums and scenic boat trips down the Neckar River to yearly beer festivals and an active nightlife, Stuttgart has something for everyone, and the best Stuttgart Germany hotel options are located close to shopping, restaurants, theaters, and other local attractions.
When it comes to selecting Stuttgart hotels, you will have many choices, including budget-friendly hostels and more moderately priced accommodations to the high-end luxury rooms and suites. If luxury is what you seek, then the five-star Hotel am Schlossgarten (pictured), which is located among the castle gardens, is an excellent choice. This hotel is convenient for shopping, visiting the city gallery, and using the central train station. The property was renovated in 2010, and each of the 116 rooms and suites has its own individual style and provides a feeling of warmth and elegance. A lovely view of the historic castle gardens can be seen from many of the rooms. The Zierbelstube restaurant has gourmet cuisine and a fine chef, and guests can dine indoors or on the terrace overlooking the gardens when weather permits.
Another fine choice is the Maritim Hotel, which boasts comfortable rooms and suites, as well as a swimming pool, solarium, sauna, fitness center, beauty lounge, and hairdresser. Within the hotel complex is the Alte Stuttgarter Reithalle, a classic Italian Renaissance glass-and-steel structure built in 1885 that accommodates conventions, events, festivals, and concerts; this aspect helps make the Maritim the best Stuttgart Germany hotel for large groups and events. The hotel adjoins Hoppenlau Park and is a short distance from the rail station. Guests have easy access to the Royal Square located in the historic district of Schlossplatz and the Konigstrasse shopping district. For golfers, the hotel provides a discount at the Schloss Nippenburg golf course.
