We didn’t have a scheduled return flight back home. I was hoping that two Lufthansa first class seats would open last minute, as it often does. I had transferred 80,000 Starpoints to Aeroplan, and during their last promotion was enough miles to book two first class tickets which I thought was a great use of Starpoints. This was before the recent Aeroplan devaluation so it made the effort even more of a reward.
We decided to fly out of Vienna and into Frankfurt so that we could visit the much heralded Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt. With the schedule, that meant another stay in Vienna. Since we had only stayed for one night in Vienna on the way in, I decided to redeem 50,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points, since rates were nearly $600/night. This gave us an extra two days in Vienna before heading to Frankfurt.
Upon check-in, I was notified that I had been upgraded to a Park Studio King room, which I was very grateful for. Thinking I would get another upgrade to the Diplomat Suite again, was wishful thinking and not something that I was expecting in the least.
The room was somewhat oddly shaped, as the room was on the top floor of the hotel, the wall along the exterior of the hotel was curved and angled inward. It was like staying in a luxury igloo.
Upon entering the room, the closet is located in the hallway. There are shelves, both enclosed and glass faced along with the safe. Oddly, the electrical adapter was located in the closet, rather than close to the desk or bed.
The mini bar is hidden in an elegant cabinet.
Next to that is a comfortable curved couch with a large coffee table and two chairs.
Going further along the edge of the igloo is the TV, followed by the tub.
It is kind of odd for the tub to be in the middle of the room, just a few steps away from the bed. At least without a mirror on the ceiling.
Next to the tub, was the desk, which was on the smaller side. There is a night stand type table next to the desk for additional room.
The bed is located in the middle of the igloo. In standard Park Hyatt fashion, the bed is very comfortable with a nightstand on each side, along with well-placed outlets.
Behind the bed, and further into the room from the desk is the bathroom, which is also on the larger side.
There is a vanity area where women can do their make-up.
To the right of the vanity area is the toilet.
There are double sinks with plenty of counter space.
Other than the igloo shape of the room, the next most prominent feature is the shower. It is absolutely humongous. There is a handheld and rainfall shower head. There is also a bench on the opposite side of the shower, perhaps 5-7 feet away. This is a creative use of otherwise wasted space.
I will only focus on the room, as I previously reviewed breakfast in The Bank.
Once again, service was top notch. All employees are very friendly and helpful. I would gladly stay here again in the future should my travels bring me back to Vienna.
