The Ringstrasse’s grande dame properties have dominated Vienna’s hotel scene for more than a century. At the Bristol and the Sacher—the two hotels that surround the world famous opera house—you’ll find a gentility that harks back to a royal past. But some newcomers are drawing visitors away from the historic properties, like the sleek Park Hyatt and the recently opened Grand Ferdinand (with a rooftop pool). On the Donaukanal, Jean Nouvel designed a beautiful Sofitel, with a glorious spa and monochromatic rooms. If you prefer to stay in a boutique hotel in Vienna, there are options in both the inner city (the Hollman-Beletage is a local favorite) and the districts around the Habsburgian center (the Hotel Altstadt, in a former noble family home).
