Main Strengths, Special Touch
A warm, refined residential style imbues 71 guestrooms and 28 suites that extend over four of the hotel’s seven floors. A neutral color palette in guestrooms conveys warmth and gracious refinement, background for an abundance of details. Its location is also a feature of the property, in the heart of the old town and steps away from luxurious shopping and dining.
Vienna conveys the rich heritage of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, stands as a cosmopolitan gateway to Eastern Europe and represents a modern world capital. Steps away from the hotel, in the city’s Old Town, sits the gothic cathedral of St. Stephen, the Hofburg Imperial Palace complex, the seat of the Hapsburgs, with prized collections of silver, porcelain, tapestries, furniture and art, including Old Masters at the nearby Kunsthistorisches Museum. More than a million prints and drawings, late Gothic to the present day, are part of an unprecedented — and unmissable — treasure at the Albertina museum. The Upper Belvedere Palace is a showcase of Viennese Modernism, with masterworks by Egon Schiele, Oskar.
Vienna is a city of music, in churches and palaces, concert halls and theaters. Two of the world’s leading performing arts organizations, the Vienna Philharmonic and the Vienna State Opera, perform in spectacular venues, the Musikverein and the Wiener Staatsoper respectively, along Vienna’s famed Ringstrasse boulevard. The Staatsoper is also the venue for a uniquely Viennese tradition, the Vienna Opera Ball, held each February, the most magnificent of more than 400 balls that take place during the ball season.
The 19th-century landmark comprised buildings of historic pedigree including the apartment in which Mozart lived and wrote The Abduction from the Seraglio.
Influenced by the rich artistic heritage of Vienna, visual art is a hallmark of Rosewood Vienna, with work by contemporary artists in its guestrooms and throughout the property. Evocative murals painted by Austrian artist Marie Hartig embellish Salon Aurelie, the hotel’s luminous lobby lounge. Among the decorative palm fronds, flora, and butterflies, inspired by Vienna’s splendid Palmenhaus (Palm House) art nouveau conservatory, guests enjoy the ambience of a chic Viennese coffee house.
