Interesting. I really enjoyed the PH VIE, and found it a great location, price, point cost, breakfast, etc. Overall a great property, so I am not sure where the Andaz would fit in there, unless it is going to alter the price/point matrix for the PH, likely making it less of a good value.

Now Hyatt...for gods sake...how about something in Madrid? Rome? Athens? Prague? Budapest? Of course, given Hyatt's track record, I suppose when and if they ever do open a property in say, Madrid, they will then follow it up with 3 more in Madrid.

I agree - I don't really understand the strategy of Hyatt here. According to me, they should put emphasis on expanding their foot print to more cities, in stead of adding more hotels to an already existing Hyatt City...

also... both Madrid and Budapest used to have Hyatt hotels... unfortunately gone.

Heard of a Hyatt in Barcelona about 2 years ago... but not seen any further announcements/communications.

Their website "Hyatt Development" does not seem to be maintained either...

Instead of a second Hyatt in Vienna, with both being fairly upscale, why not MUNICH or Barcelona or Madrid or Lisbon or.....?????

A bit far away from where I like to stay. Definitely agree that the Park Hyatt has a much better location.

Nice to have another option. Will consider once the Inter-Continental is gone for teardown and new build, till then our corp rate just too good to stay anywhere else.

Also if those prices they are calling now stick (400 for entry level room) then this won't stay a Cat 3 property for long.

Andaz Vienna now taking reservations May 15 onward. Rates start at 185e. Category 3 so just 12,000 points and Chase free nights are available. It's near the Central Train Station but is this a good area to stay in Vienna?

Andaz open as of April 30, 2019

https://newsroom.hyatt.com/news-releases?item=123835

CHICAGO (May 6, 2019) Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today that Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere opened on 30 April 2019, marking the Andaz brands 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 Austrias 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.

  • Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere Skybar Terrace

  • Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere Exterior Plaza

  • Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere Guestroom
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 Gzde 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 hotels location offers easy access to historical landmarks, including the Belvedere Palace and the Botanical Gardens. Only a short walk away from Viennas main train station, guests can create their own unique adventures by exploring the new city district Quartier Belvedere and its peaceful green surroundings.

Design
Renowned architect Renzo Piano and interior designers Claudio Carbone and Gabriel Kacerovsky collaborated on the project, which incorporates the art and design of Austrias 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.

Guestrooms
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 Belvederes 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 Rstwerkstatt.

Social Spaces
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 hotels exclusive health and wellness area. Complete with an array of treatments and amenities, every guest will leave feeling fully rejuvenated.
