Rosewood Vienna to be housed in historic 18th century building

by Jane Kitchen | 12 Jun 2017

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will open its fifth property in Europe in 2021, the Rosewood Vienna.

Housed in an historic 18th century building that was the former headquarters for Erste Group Bank AG, Rosewood Vienna will be situated in Petersplatz in Vienna’s Old Town.

The project’s design will be overseen by BEHF Corporate Architects in Austria and the London-based Alexander Waterworth Interiors firm. Their concept for the hotel's 99 contemporary bedrooms "merge the past and present" through a thoughtful combination of textural and artistic elements and the latest technological features.

The property will feature a Sense Spa and a variety of dining and entertainment facilities, including a rooftop bar with views of the city and an intimate restaurant in a garden setting.

“Vienna’s rich heritage, sophisticated cultural offerings, and thriving culinary scene make it a natural fit for Rosewood’s European portfolio,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “The city’s unique blend of charm and spectacular architecture provide endless opportunities for guests to lose themselves in the culture and history that make central Europe so special, and we are excited for Rosewood Vienna to serve as a portal through which visitors can authentically experience all that the region has to offer.”

Rosewood Vienna will join Rosewood’s other European properties, including Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco; Rosewood London; the upcoming Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel opening July 5, 2017; and Rosewood Edinburgh opening in 2020.
