“The Grande Dame of Vienna’s hotels and the venue for state visits (the Queen and Prince Philip have stayed in the fabulous Royal Suite), the sepulchral, palatial Imperial was built for the Duke of Wurtemburg in 1863 and became a hotel ten years later, with a private entrance to the adjacent Musikverein concert hall. Its rooms (half are suites, with private butler, some with roof terraces) are in superb condition and the last word in traditional Viennese elegance.”

“Discover all the majestic palace, Hotel Imperial, located on the magnificent Ring Boulevard has to offer. Built in 1863, the sumptuous Hotel Imperial was originally the Vienna residence of the Prince of Wuerttemberg. Transformed into a hotel for the world exhibition in 1873, Hotel Imperial showcases the 19th century romance of Vienna with pristine marble, hand carved statues, and spectacular crystal chandeliers. Named one of the "Best of the Best" and one of the "Top 75 Resorts in Europe," the hotel is renowned worldwide for its discreet and impeccable service.”
