Hotel Review

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.
