Fodor's Review

This Renaissance Revival-style structure, built in 1873 as an exhibition hall, was transformed 140 years later into a luxe hotel, which pays homage to the grand beginnings while also incorporating modern-day amenities. Rooms and suites come with a special eye toward technology, including a specially-programmed ipad entertainment system (the hotel won the 2013 European Hospitality Award for "Best Use of Technology"). The 8,600 square-foot, Ottoman-inspired spa houses several sauna and steam rooms, a gym, hydropool, and treatments using Elemental Herbology and Daniele de Winter products. Featuring two live cooking stations, the Die Küche restaurants serves a menu inspired by grandmas' recipes, while the Edvard, winner of a Michelin star the first year it opened, showcases international fare. Named for writer Lou Andreas-Salomé, whose circle included Freud and Nietzsche, the Henri Lou bar is the place for cocktails and live DJs (Thursday–Saturday nights). The hotel also has Vienna's largest cigar lounge.
