It’s taken 140 years for it to open as a hotel, but the Palais Hansen Kempinski has finally opened in Vienna. The hotel with its grand exterior was designed for the 1873 World Exhibition but later used as a government building. After years of renovation, it has opened with 152 rooms on seven floors, a spa, two restaurants and two bars. It’s on Schottenring street near the Danube. Rates start at about $340 a night.
