Hyatt Hotels Corporation opened the Park Hyatt Vienna, the seventh Park Hyatt property in Europe and the first Hyatt hotel in Austria. Formerly serving as a bank, the property reopened under the Park Hyatt name following a two year top-to-bottom renovation and restoration that preserved the history and aesthetics 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 a shopping district in Vienna, just steps away from the fashion houses and boutiques of Tuchlauben and Kohlmarkt, the hotel is near St. Stephan Cathedral, the Hofburg Palace and the historic monuments and museums that Vienna has to offer.
Park Hyatt Vienna maintains its original architecture, renovated and redesigned by the Dutch interior design company FJStijl. The hotel has 143 guestrooms, including 35 suites, ranging from 375 square feet to 1,830 square feet, which are among the largest standard rooms in the city. Inspired by the ancient bank building and Viennese culture, FJStijl designed a one-of-a-kind hotel with attention to detail and a passion for color and texture that reflects the dual nature of the city’s historic environment. Vienna-inspired contemporary art, wood floors, Italian marble and elements such as blown-up brooches and other wall decorations are used for the interiors to offer a residential feel.
For dining, Park Hyatt Vienna has The Bank, an all-day dining restaurant that is located in the former cashier hall; the Pearl bar; the Living Room, which offers a cigar and whisky lounge; and the Lounge.
Also available is the 10,000-square-foot Arany Spa, which is spread out over two floors and has six treatment rooms, one of which is a couple’s treatment room with private changing facilities and a shower.
Other facilities available at Arany Spa include a 160 square foot pool located in the former vault of the bank, fitness facilities and a separate wet area with sauna, steam bath, vitality shower and relaxation area.
Park Hyatt Vienna provides conference and meeting facilities and has more than 8,000 square feet of space. All conference rooms are equipped with natural daylight, the latest audiovisual equipment and individually adjustable air-conditioning. Five boardrooms feature permanently installed screens ranging from 70 to 80 inches, as well as interactive touch panels to control the lighting. Moreover, Park Hyatt Vienna offers attractive daily delegate rates for meetings or conferences.
