Hyatt Hotels has announced the official opening of Park Hyatt Vienna, the seventh Park Hyatt property in Europe and the first Hyatt hotel in Austria.
Formerly serving as a bank, the property has re-opened under the Park Hyatt name following a two year top-to-bottom renovation and restoration that preserved the history and charm of the original structure.
Situated in Vienna’s new pedestrian Goldenes Quartier and on the Am Hof square, Park Hyatt Vienna occupies a 100-year-old building that formerly served as the headquarters of the Austrian Hungarian Monarchy Bank and forms part of Vienna’s First District which is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Located in the heart of the most exclusive shopping district in Vienna, just steps away from the celebrated fashion houses and boutiques of Tuchlauben and Kohlmarkt, the hotel is just a short walk from the city’s most important sights, including St. Stephan Cathedral, the Hofburg Palace, and all the historic monuments and museums that Vienna has to offer.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring the Park Hyatt brand to a city like Vienna, which is rich in culture, art, history and sophistication,” said Monique Dekker, general manager of Park Hyatt Vienna.
“The Park Hyatt brand focuses on creating rare, intimate and unforgettable experiences, so we are eager to open our doors and welcome guests to discover a new business and leisure destination in the heart of historical Vienna.”
