What’s New?

From Tyrol to Vienna, our favorite hotels never rest on their considerable laurels. Some of these upscale properties have added and upgraded and refined to magnificent effect. A few will debut their latest makeovers in 2017. To the discerning traveler, whether alpine adventurer or urban explorer, these enhancements will surely delight.

 

Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol: This five-star hotel has recently expanded its spa and wellness facility to include a new 2,475-square-foot sauna zone, ideal for guests who prefer swimwear to au naturel when they sauna and relax with the whole family. The new ‘textile’ zone features a choice of sauna cabins, an ice fountain, foot baths and spacious showers, as well as direct access to the pool.

 

Hotel Kristiania Lech: With the new House Hannes Schneider, the boutique Hotel Kristiania adds a new superlative among Arlberg’s premier private chalets. The former childhood home of ski pioneer Hannes Schneider features original pieces that evoke the glamorous 1950’s, as well as beautiful antiques, a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, dedicated cinema and games room. Six ensuite bedrooms accommodate 16 guests, who can be pampered by a private chef, personal assistant, maid and chauffeur.

 

Hotel Altstadt Vienna: Sweet–a new suite! Austrian-born architect and designer Josef Frank, one of Modernism’s most influential figures, fled to Sweden in 1933 and gained a devoted following for his work with Swedish design firm Svenskt Tenn. In 2016, the Hotel Altstadt and Svenskt Tenn brought Frank back to Vienna with a whole new suite for the hotel. Coming in 2017, another four rooms curated by four designers will debut at this art-centric hotel.

 

Hotel Stefanie: Vienna’s oldest hotel has just completed a major renovation throughout its elegant property. All 111 guest rooms and suites at the Hotel Stefanie are as stylish as ever, adding flat-screen televisions and Wi-Fi services that blend seamlessly with an in-house collection of antiques, painting and sculpture.

 

Hotel Gasthof Post: Happy 80th! In 2017, the Moosbrugger family will celebrate 80 years (and counting) of welcoming guests to the Hotel Gasthof Post in Lech. To complete a major restaurant upgrade, the hotel will close over the summer and reopen in the fall.
