The Waldhotel Schatten has a rich and exciting history, dating back to 1783. It became famous far beyond the region for an attraction that raised the pulse of all racing fans: The Solitude racetrack, with an S bend right in front of the hotel that was nothing short of notorious. Today the Waldhotel offers the perfect setting for a pit stop à la relexa: peaceful, comfortable and relaxing. Even as you enter the lobby you will be welcomed by a synthesis of the traditional and modern, which is continued throughout the hotel.

Great hotel, zero American tourists (so it's off the beaten path). Very friendly staff, eager to please. This is a German hotel in Germany, as opposed to a tourist hotel in Germany where you mind find a variety of nationalities. This is where
German businessmen stay, where they conduct meetings, and where German travelers in general will stay. Around 3 KM north of the main sites around Stuttgart, particularly Patch Barracks. Easy drive south in the morning for meetings around town, easy drive north at the end of the day. Excellent FREE breakfast, good dinner menu, though somewhat limited. Room was neat and tidy, but not an American standard. Again, nothing negative. Comfortable bed, approximated a full size, just a bit smaller. Tub was narrower than a US one. Shower was a handheld sprayer mounted on the wall; standard in Europe, not so in the US. Plenty of hot water, all glasses were glass, no plastic. Fridge in the room stocked with beer, wine, snacks. TV looked like a computer monitor, had TV controls and a remote control. Business center gave you internet access, but it was a German keyboard (no touch typing, different keys and letter/character placement). Free wifi in the lobby, separate network available in the room for a fee. Free parking. Excellent experience, will plan to stay there again on my next trip.

Short drive from hotel
Stuttgart is not a town of US tourism. Finding a restaurant was a challenge. People are very friendly and will be happy to assist. Frankfurt is more international, restaurants and bars are more easily identifiable.
