Named for the world's most famous chocolate cake, this charming Viennese grand dame has been hosting luminary guests—John F. Kennedy, the royals of Monaco, composer Leonard Bernstein—since 1876. Centrally located by the city's famed Opera House and gorgeous Hofburg Imperial Palace, the 149-room retreat is a celebration of the best of Austria. Gilded common areas, including three traditional restaurants, are complimented by modern rooms outfitted with antiques, original artwork, and spacious bathrooms. In addition to a variety of La Prairie treatments, the spa offers a decadent chocolate experience in homage to the hotel's storied past.
