We stayed at the Hotel Wolf in Salzburg. Charming place, great location and really nice buffet breakfast included in room rate. I think the website is www.hotelwolf.at (if not, google it).
You will love Salzburg!

We've been to Salzburg five times and consider it one of our two must-see, beautiful places in Europe.

As for hotels, the Altstadt area is, in my opinion, the best place to be. Blaue Gans is a quaint hotel in a great location Their "Karajan" sized rooms are nice, though more expensive. If budget is a concern, consider the Am Dom. 700 year old building, next to Mozartplatz and the cathedral. Ask for a larger room. The owner is especially helpful and friendly.

As a follow-on...there is more to Salzburg than Mozart. The overall ambience of the so-called "old town" is very atmospheric although as others have pointed out..it can get crowded (bceause a lot of other people recognize a great location when they see it, too).

You might also consider going OUT of the Old Town for a short distance to someplace like Schloss Hellbrun for a tour of the gardens and "trick" fountains.

You may also enjoy a marionette performance if the timings are right.

As to the whole "Sounf of Music" thing.

One or two of the exterior scenes from the film were filmed at the Schloss Leopoldskron which is now occupied by the Salzburg Seminar.

The infamous gazebo was apparently shut down after a tourist some years ago decided to re-create the dance number and fell and injured herself.
