Hilton Vienna Plaza is currently undergoing extensive renovation as part of a €20 million modernisation that will see the entire hotel transformed. Scheduled for completion in September 2014, the re-design includes all 254 rooms and suites at the hotel and a fresh approach to service and service delivery. Currently closed for the renovation, as of June 6th, 2014 the hotel looks forward to welcoming guests to the new Hilton Vienna Plaza.
Robert Angell Design International, the prestigious London-based design studio, has overseen the new interior design of the hotel, which is characterized by stylized geometrical. Dedicated relaxation and work areas will make each of the spacious guestrooms welcoming and comfortable, while marble will add a touch of timeless elegance to the guest bathrooms. The brand’s signature in room amenities, such as the Hilton Serenity bed, will ensure the ultimate comfort for every guest. The hotel’s five suites located at the Penthouse Floor provide private balconies with beautiful views over the city.
The makeover also extends to the meeting area on the first floor of the hotel on the Ringstraße. The 10 renovated, bright and fully equipped conference rooms will offer an ideal venue for holding meetings and conferences for up to 150 people (theatre style) in a central location. The generous Executive Lounge, located on the same floor, offers space for more than 70 people and will also be available for special meetings.
Matthias Herd, hotel manager, said, “Most important for us is to continue examining and enhancing our concept of service and our approach to service delivery. By delivering a higher level of individualised care and attention, we aim to enable our guests to recapture the spirit of the Golden Age. The newly developed welcome concept guarantees guests an even more personal experience, with our Plaza Hosts acting as direct point of contact from arrival to departure.”
The redesign of Hilton Vienna Plaza was inspired by the architectural history of the building and artworks created in the Art Deco and Wiener Werkstätte styles, which were previously evident throughout the hotel. Encapsulating these design influences, the new brasserie and bar “Émileim Plaza” is set to complement the upgrade with an array of irresistible gastronomic delights.
Chris Webb, Senior Director of Interior Design, Europe at Hilton Worldwide, drew on the defining elements of the Viennese Secession style which were incorporated when the hotel was built in the mid-1980s. Prominent architects of the early 1920s – especially Adolf Loos and Joseph Hoffmann – served as important sources of inspiration. Their work had a very high impact on the flair of Hilton Vienna Plaza. The aim of the modernisation is to accentuate special features of this unique history and to combine it with the comfort of the 21th century, always focusing on the interests of the hotel’s guests.
Hilton Vienna Plaza is situated at Vienna’s most prestigious location, the Ringstraße. It is only a short walk to St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Burgtheater, the State Opera and Hofburg Imperial Palace.
