The film portrays life at the luxurious Berlin Hotel Adlon from 1907 to 1945. It was inspired by the 1955 autobiography, Hotel Adlon. Das Berliner Hotel, in dem die große Welt zu Gast war, published in English in 1960 as Hotel Adlon: The Life and Death of a Great Hotel by Hedda Adlon (1889–1967) (née Hedwig Leythen), daughter-in-law of Lorenz Adlon and Louis Adlon's father's second wife.
Film director Percy Adlon, great-grandson of Lorenz Adlon made a documentary about the hotel called The Glamorous World of the Adlon Hotel in 1996. A three-part drama mini-series set at the hotel entitled Das Adlon. Eine Familiensaga (The Adlon: A Family Saga) was broadcast on the German television station ZDF in January 2013 and a documentary Das Adlon – Die Dokumentation (The Adlon: A Documentary) was also broadcast by ZDF in January 2013.
