Park Hyatt Vienna
Covid-19 - What you should know
Skylark’s advisor team is here to support you. Travel is tricky right now and planning isn’t always straightforward, but our team of advisors is here to assist in every way we can.
From Hyatt: With some very limited exceptions, reservations booked on July 1, 2020 or beyond – for arrival dates through July 31, 2021 – can be cancelled at no charge up to 24 hours before your scheduled arrival. Any other reservations made after June 30, 2020 that disclose a different cancellation or refund policy at the time of booking are excluded from this policy and subject to the cancellation or refund policy disclosed at the time of booking. Hotels may adjust this cancellation policy during some high-demand periods (e.g., holidays or special events). When making reservations, guests are always encouraged to review the rate rules, which show the current cancellation and deposit policies for all properties and rates, to ensure they understand the cancellation and/or deposit rules for each reservation.
What it is
A revamped, architecturally rich 143-room glamazon with (wait for it) a pool.
What it isn't
Standard issue. “When in Vienna,” rooms with parquet floors and mother of pearl detailing are a must.
What we think
Even by Viennese standards, Park Hyatt Vienna is sumptuous. Where else can you find a spa with a 15-meter indoor swimming pool, sanarium and vitality shower? Not to mention rain showers and marble lined baths in the privacy of your own room? Even locals flock here to sip expertly curated rare whiskeys—and puff on cigars from the walk-in humidor—in the Living Room restaurant, or grab dinner in the Bank Brasserie, a nod to the property’s former life as a bank. Try the bison loin with maple mustard marinade, cooked on a lava stone grill, when you don’t feel like yet another wiener schnitzel with mountain cranberries (which they also serve—it is uproariously delicious).
You're here because
If you can’t swim, you don’t consider yourself on vacation. Thankfully, the hotel’s on-site Arany Spa is home to an ultra-glam 15-meter indoor pool where an LED-lit art installation conjures the moon on turquoise water.
Tucked into a corner overlooking the Bognergasse in Café Am Hof, you forgive yourself for feeling yourself transported to a circa 1800s iteration of Starbucks. Was that Freud himself dashing back a cuppa and a truffle ham and cheese toast? Vielleicht (perhaps).
In the Goldenes Quartier, a.k.a. Vienna’s Shopaholics mecca. If you’re trying to avoid credit card damage, landmark St. Stephan’s Cathedral is two miles away; Hofburg Palace only three.
