LOUNGE

The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna offers the Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge on the top (seventh) floor. DSC_1277The lounge serves everything from a complete breakfast to tasty warm appetizers in the evening and snacks and Viennese cakes in between, along with a variety of coffees and beverages.

It’s staffed by a dedicated team that somehow seems to indulge guests even more than the rest of the staff, if such a thing is at all possible.

WELLNESS

The hotel also provides an 18- meter (59-foot) indoor pool with underwater lighting and music (I verified this personally of course), fitness room, sauna, and steam rooms, along with six treatment rooms that are part of the Guerlain Spa

DINING

The main restaurant, Dstrikt (the name is meant to evoke the First District or Erster Bezirk of Vienna, which is the oldest part of the city), features the cuisine of Austrian chef Wini Brugger.  The hotel hopes that the restaurant will attract locals as well as hotel guests with its authentic Austrian cuisine.  DSC_1247To this end, it has an entrance on the Ring in addition to through the hotel. It also offers al fresco dining in the summer season.

My dinner there started off with excellent bread accompanied by thinly-sliced ham with a main course of Neusiedler pike perch with Veltliner sauce.

Another meal there included excellent Carinthian cream cheese dumplings based on a recipe by Brugger’s grandmother and Wiener Schnitzel, which was also quite good.

The wine list has an excellent selection of Austrian reds and whites, including many of my favorites (80% of Austria’s wine is consumed domestically, I should add).
