Andaz Brand Debuts in Austria with the Opening of Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere
The property marks the second Hyatt branded hotel in Austria and the fourth Andaz property in Europe
May 06, 2019 // Franchising.com // CHICAGO - Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today that Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere opened on 30 April 2019, marking the Andaz brand’s entry into Austria. Located in the new Quartier Belvedere, the property is the fourth Andaz branded hotel in Europe, joining Andaz London Liverpool Street, Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht and the recently opened Andaz Munich Schwabinger Tor.
Launched in 2007 and designed to stimulate the senses through distinctively local experiences, the Andaz brand continues to grow with intent across the world. Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere is inspired by Austria’s grand historic personality and the man behind the iconic Belvedere Palace, Prince Eugene of Savoy. Showcasing contemporary art and design, the hotel will offer every guest a unique experience by immersing them into the local Viennese culture.
“We are thrilled to welcome curious travelers to our hotel and to this beautiful city, known for its high quality of life, imperial palaces and exceptional art,” said Gözde Eren, general manager of Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere. “The property offers a new type of luxury accommodation for guests who seek to satiate their curiosity, delivering unforgettable, immersive Austrian experiences that allow you to feel like a local.”
The hotel’s location offers easy access to historical landmarks, including the Belvedere Palace and the Botanical Gardens. Only a short walk away from Vienna’s main train station, guests can create their own unique adventures by exploring the new city district Quartier Belvedere and its peaceful green surroundings.
Renowned architect Renzo Piano and interior designers Claudio Carbone and Gabriel Kacerovsky collaborated on the project, which incorporates the art and design of Austria’s capital city throughout the hotel. They also drew inspiration from Prince Eugene of Savoy, one of the leading developers and art collectors of his time. As a result, Viennese art and a twist on local culture are found throughout the property, from the decorations in each guestroom to the dishes served in the restaurant.
The hotel is comprised of two separate buildings connected by interwoven bridges, sharing a spacious lobby lounge on the ground floor. Integrating exquisite design, irresistible cuisine and spectacular art, Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere immerses guests in the history and allure of Vienna.
The hotel offers 303 luxurious, urban guestrooms, including 44 suites. Continuing with inspiration from Prince Eugene of Savoy, each guestroom includes creative modern interiors, with an infusion of local and artistic details. The floor-to-ceiling windows in each room ensure that guests can enjoy the stunning views of Quartier Belvedere in the city center or the nearby Belvedere Palace, historically known as the summer residence of Prince Eugene and is now a popular tourist attraction for art aficionados. Each guestroom was designed with sustainability practices in mind, using less plastic and replacing it with more environmentally friendly materials like leather and paper. The bathroom amenities are provided by Saint Charles Pharmacy, high quality products developed from the teachings of traditional European medicine.
Drinking and Dining
Eugen21, a contemporary Austrian tavern, combines classic and modern cuisine. A variety of past and present traditions provide guests with an insight into how Prince Eugene would live and dine, with a 21st century twist. The cocktail menu perfectly combines an Austrian-European wine list and traditional cocktails and beers with consciously sourced ingredients.
Inspired by the Northern Lights, Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere’s rooftop bar Aurora features an exceptional Scandinavian-inspired cocktail menu with delicious bar snacks. Located on the 16th floor, the Nordic designed bar offers stunning views of Vienna which guests can enjoy while snuggling next to the open fire pit or listening to DJs late into the evening.
Cyclist is the perfect meet-up location for health-conscious guests, locals looking for a relaxing urban space or for those on the go. The eatery offers sandwiches, salads and hearty dishes perfectly complemented by a variety of specialty coffees such as Viennese Melange, all with the option to carry on your way out of the hotel. Like many touches throughout the hotel, Cyclist focuses on regionalism and sustainability in packaging and products. As such, Cyclist serves a single estate coffee bean specially made for the eatery from the micro-roasting coffee maker Röstwerkstatt.
Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere is home to three creative studios, each filled with natural daylight, perfect for small intimate occasions. Additionally, the hotel is home to a spectacular 7,588 square foot (705 square meter) ballroom with a modern lighting system that can project various color options onto the ceiling. There is also 2,604 square feet (242 square meters) of meeting and event space, which offers the latest technology to ensure a successful event or meeting.
Travelers looking to be pampered can spend the day relaxing in the hotel’s exclusive health and wellness area. Complete with an array of treatments and amenities, every guest will leave feeling fully rejuvenated.
