News for the Hospitality Executive
PARIS (June 5, 2009) – Warwick International Hotels is delighted to announce a new affiliate member hotel, the Altstadt Vienna, Austria, which marks the first time WIH has partnered with an Austrian hotel. The building that is known today as Hotel Altstadt Vienna was built in 1902 and is located in the 7th Viennese district, the Spittelberg-area, famous for its artistic flair.
In 1991, Otto E. Wiesenthal rebuilt the house into the Altstadt Vienna with 24 rooms and suites. During the last ten years the house has been enlarged with apartments and is today a meeting point for artists, musicians and individual travelers looking for a distinctive hotel with good service.
Contemporary art, unique design, charm and terrific comfort
feature impressively throughout the boutique Hotel Altstadt. The
hotel's 42 rooms and suites, part of a grand Viennese apartment block,
are spread out across five floors. Each of the exquisitely decorated
rooms and suites has a touch of the past. All rooms have been designed
to meet individual needs so that none are alike. Easy chairs, plump
floral sofas, classic and design furniture, high ceilings,
honey-coloured parquet floors, and contemporary art transform each and
every room into a personal living room.
In July 2006 nine elegant rooms designed by Italian star
architect Matteo Thun were added. Dark parquet, ornate chandeliers and
sumptuous wallpapers with damask pattern present a fresh and modern
interpretation of the turn of the century in a seductive journey back
to Vienna's "Belle Epoque."
"We are very proud to include such an impressive boutique
hotel into our Collection of Hotels & Resorts. It is our first
hotel in Austria and we are very excited to be able to offer our guests
and clients from around the world such a prestigious international
location,” said G.Paul LeBlanc, Vice President Marketing & Sales
for Warwick International Hotels.
The inviting, cozy Red Salon, complete with an open fire, bar,
piano and complimentary tea and homemade cakes each and every
afternoon, is the ideal location to relax and feel well and truly at
The Altstadt Vienna can be reserved through the Warwick
