Vienna has always been an artist’s dream! And now it seems to be that of hospitality chains too. Exhibiting so is Rosewood with the opening of its first hotel in the German-speaking market and the brand’s fifth European property. Where you ask? In the Austrian capital of course!
Situated in a restored 19th-century neoclassical building that was the former headquarters of the Erste Group Bank AG, the hotel features 71 spacious guest rooms and 28 suites over seven floors and a fleet of luxury amenities.
In matching the city’s heritage, the property includes murals painted by Austrian artist Marie Hartig in the lobby lounge. Further, the rooms come with custom-made furnishings and luxurious fabrics by Backhausen and commissioned works by leading international artists.
Commenting on the hotel’s opening, Alexander Lahmer, Managing Director of Rosewood Vienna said, “The opening of Rosewood Vienna offers today’s ultra-luxury travelers a new kind of Viennese lifestyle, one that is imbued with the rich history of the destination yet the modern and cosmopolitan outlook befitting this dynamic European capital.”
“We are thrilled to open our doors to a distinctive hospitality experience in one of the world’s greatest cities,” he further added. Rosewood Vienna further boasts a brasserie and rooftop bar, restaurants, wellness center, meeting rooms, and the luxe Asaya Spa.
It will also offer guests curated experiences and special access to the local culture through its “Discover My Vienna” program including events such as shopping for Augarten porcelain, designing tailor-made shoes at Scheer boutique, or experiencing one of the city’s culinary treasures, Zu Herknerin, a traditional Austrian tavern.
