I reviewed the Park Hyatt Vienna just over a year ago, so I’ll keep this review pretty short. We spent three nights at the Park Hyatt Vienna, and I managed to book both rooms using Points + Cash, which cost $150 plus 12,500 Gold Passport points per night. I considered that to be a pretty good value in comparison to the paid rate of 400EUR+ per night, or even in comparison to redeeming 25,000 points per room.
I used a Diamond Suite Upgrade Award for one room, though they ended up upgrading both rooms to suites, which was extremely generous. This is an area where I find that Hyatt consistently excels. While they don’t award stay credits for multiple rooms, I find that more often than not they honor all elite benefits for both rooms.
At a minimum, if you make a “Guest of Honor” booking you’re guaranteed elite benefits when redeeming points for others, even if you’re not traveling with them.
Let me simply say that just about everything about our Park Hyatt Vienna stay was perfect again. I won’t cover the public facilities or breakfast, since my experience was very similar to last time.
However, I figured I’d post some pictures of our suite, since it was slightly different than the one I had last time. Given the unique building the hotel is in, not all rooms within each category are the same.
While we had two Park Suites, they weren’t quite the same — we gave the same one I had last time to Ford’s mom since I thought the suite was a bit nicer, while we took the other suite, which was still very nice, but not quite as great.
Our Park Suite featured a beautiful, large entryway with the entrance to the bathroom to the right, the living room straight ahead, and a couple of closets to the left.
The living room was beautiful, with a couch and chair surrounding a coffee table, as well as a desk in the corner by the window.
The TV was “hidden,” in the sense that there was a mirror that could be lifted to reveal the TV — very cool setup!
There was a welcome amenity consisting of fruit and chocolate (last time around we got to pick out an amenity, which wasn’t the case this time, though I wasn’t about to complain given that they upgraded our second room to a suite for free).
The living room was separated from the bedroom by a door. The bedroom had a comfortable king size bed.
In the corner was a chair with an ottoman, as well as a chair and table, which could be used to get ready.
Much like in the living room, the TV was hidden.
What made this suite a bit different than the one I had last time is that the bathroom could only be accessed from the foyer, while last time it could also be accessed from the bedroom.
The bathroom setup was very similar otherwise, though. The bathrooms at this hotel really are gorgeous.
The hotel has Blaise Mautin toiletries, and much like last time, I found the scent to be bizarrely unpleasant.
Our suite was on the fifth floor, so we had a view of a nearby building. The Park Hyatt Vienna faces a pedestrian block, so it’s very quiet in the rooms.
Perhaps the best part of visiting the Park Hyatt Vienna around Christmas is that there’s a market right outside the door of the hotel. While it wasn’t the biggest in Vienna, it was incredibly charming, and we went there every night for a drink.
Park Hyatt Vienna bottom line
The main point of this post is to say that my second stay at the Park Hyatt Vienna was every bit as good as my first, and this remains one of my favorite Hyatt properties in the world. This hotel is a great deal on Points + Cash, and Diamond Suite Upgrades can secure some very nice suites.
If you haven’t been to Vienna or this hotel, I highly recommend them both.
