Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna Opens in March

Palais Hansen Kempinski, Vienna

There’s no shortage of exciting new hotels opening in 2013, and we’re keeping a close eye on some of the most glamorous ones. As we reported last year, the Austrian capital is expecting some dynamite new digs, starting with the Palais Hansen Kempinski- which opens in March. Originally built as a hotel for the World Exhibition in Vienna in 1873, the building is located in the heart of the city, not far from St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

A renovation has transformed the hotel into a glamorous destination with two restaurants, a winter garden, a spa, and what’s expected to be happening nightlife spots. (including a Cigar Lounge). Decorated with fine fabrics and furnishings in a contemporary style, the rooms come with all the creature comforts (like a pillow menu and espresso machine).
