And former Hotel Carlton. Does anyone know, if it has something to do with the Ritz-Carlton franchise, which is now to be found on Potsdamer Platz?

As its architecture is (neo) traditional I'll give you a glimpse as well:

^ Almost historical, too. It got an honourable mention in the New Berlin Style thread now.

Why is the new Ritz Carlton considered traditional? The interiors are quite so, but the exterior appears largely modernist. And why is this historic? Thanks.

It does have an Art Deco influence in the design, but it certainly isn't historic.

Here's where I got the historic element.

Art Deco? Interesting. Hard to see that from the photo of the exterior. For sure the interiors are not true or drawn from art deco unless it was intended to be extremely subtle.
