PARK HYATT VIENNA
First Hyatt-branded property in Austria to be designed by interior design firm FG Stijl and architects Neumann & Partners. Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that a Hyatt affiliate signed an agreement with SIGNA Holding Group to manage Park Hyatt Vienna, which will be located in the city’s renowned Innere Stadt, or First District.
Situated on Am Hof, one of Vienna’s largest squares within the First District, which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2001, Park Hyatt Vienna will be located in the heart of the most exclusive shopping district in Vienna and within walking distance of the city’s famous Opera House and other important sights, historic monuments, and museums. The United Nations Office at Vienna and other important political buildings are also located within a short distance of the hotel. From the very start, the designers were very consistent in combining the masculinity and grandeur of the former bank building with the exuberant style and elegance of Vienna in 1913, and great care was taken to reflect this in elements big and small throughout the interior.
Truly one of the richest periods that Europe has ever seen, the art and accessories to many areas and guestrooms were inspired by the brooches, hairpins and jewellery of this age and the materials selected reflect the very best available. In the corridors of the hotel there are 1.7-metre-high objects d’art made to replicate the tortoiseshell hair combs of the period. A pivotal time in fashion, these objects were highly sought after at the time, but they soon became obsolete when hairstyles changed and the influence of Parisian fashion spread. With this attention to detail and history reflected in the art, accessories and design as a whole, the designers have strived to create a sense of style befitting Vienna and celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of the building.
