The Hotel: Very good, modern hotel in Vienna's first district (Innere Stadt), steps away from the Ringstraße & tram that encircle it. The hotel is situated on a beautiful tree lined street and is mere several minutes' walk from historic sites in the Innere Stadt - e.g., the Vienna State Opera and the Museumsquartier. Many restaurants, sites and shops very close. Also, well situated for business.
While the exterior facade is more classic, the interior is very stylish with great modern decor, lighting and artwork in the Lobby, Restaurant & Bar, and the very cool street-side Champagne & Chocolate Bar / Cafe. Taxi stand outside, and public transport with mere feet of the front door ensure great transportation options should you desire.
The Room: Very nice, moderately sized King room. The modern decor carries from the lobby and main areas into the room - which has great modern decor, lighting, and is well appointed. Nice king bed, which was firm, but comfortable with good linen. There were a small upholstered chaise and upholstered chair, with a small table between, the table had glasses and a large bottle of still water. A small, modern desk, with phone and wall mounted flat-screen television above sat across the room from the bed. There were a small closet safe, a small refrigerator stocked with drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and a small closet with robes, slippers. Very nice and varied lighting. Two full size windows which opened - nice on cool evening as ventilation was inadequate.
The bath was very well appointed, also in modern, clean lines, with a stand-alone shower, a freestanding bathtub, and a single sink vanity. Sundries were provided (Le Meridien labeled) - incl shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap. Very modern, multi-head shower. Quite nice, if poorly lit for shaving, etc. - though shaving mirror helps with last item. High marks for room, and appointment within same. Internet Service was complimentary, though a for-fee high-speed option was also available and worked quite well. Typical asst of television and movie options. Room Service was Prompt, effusively friendly. All in all, excellent room.
The Staff: From Front Desk, to Concierge, to Room Service the staff was excellent; they were professional, prompt, friendly throughout my stay. When I failed to pick up for 3am wake up call, front desk sent someone up to wake me - greatly appreciated. Concierge recommended two local restaurants - both excellent.
The Practicalities: King Room was just over US$530 for two nights stay.
The Verdict: Absolutely recommended for business or leisure travel in central Vienna.
