The Marriott brand is one of the most recognized and respected in the hospitality industry and I was super excited for the opportunity to stay at the Vienna Marriott location. This luxury hotel characterized by a mixture of Viennese charm and American spirit, is conveniently located in an elegant building just 6 km from Schloss Schönbrunn Palace and an 11-minute walk from the Vienna State Opera - aka the perfect location!
Upon entering the room, I was greeted with the cutest and yummiest welcome package as their special guest - I especially loved the blush roses and the “Vienna Life” book which is currently on my coffee table in my NYC apartment.
The hotel hosts 328 spacious rooms and suites; all of which were completely modernized just last year - premium finishings and exquisite materials ensure an enjoyable and relaxing stay. The bed was so comfortable and bedding so cozy and luxurious, even an insomnia challenged person like myself had a perfect nights’ sleep. The bathroom was very elegant and tranquil - I am still obsessed with the all white with black marble and will be copying that decor inspo.
This reading nook/lounge area was a favorite spot for me - with a view of the lush Stadtpark and Vienna city skyline, it was the perfect location to sit, read my new book and plan an itinerary for the next few days of exploration.
The day I arrived, it was raining so much, I decided to have a chill day-in and enjoy the hotel. First up, was getting something to eat and the Vienna Marriott offers a rich choice of restaurants and bars. The hotel suggested the Legendary Brunch at the chic Parkring Restaurant, where guests can savor both typical Austrian delicacies and international cuisine while enjoying a unique view of the park from the floor to ceiling glass windows. There was also a great perspective of the lobby with its light-flooded atrium and grand ground floor from the restaurant level - you can see the Garten Cafe, which is ideal for meeting friends and business partners or just to sit and have some coffee with Viennese pastries or their famous, award-winning cheesecake.- trust me, I still have cravings for it! The relaxed Champions Sports Bar and the modern Cascade Bar with a waterfall - suffice to say, it was a pretty cool and very lively lobby area!
After brunch I decided to have some self-care time and enjoy the other amenities of the Vienna Marriott - including, a twelve-meter indoor pool, a spa area with an infrared sauna and an aroma steam room, and a fully equipped 24-hour gym with high quality technogym workout devices. Plus, there is also a dedicated area that serves delicious drinks and snacks - one freshly made all natural juice please! What else could you ask for in a health club??
I can not say enough how much I enjoyed my stay at the Vienna Marriott Hotel. I highly recommend staying there if you plan to visit the city - you will not be disappointed. It is a beautiful and reasonably priced hotel with impeccable service, great dining and all the amenities, that are sure to make your stay an unforgettable experience.
until next time,
