We stayed in Salzburg for two nights during a stopover between our visits to Prague and Munich and oh boy were we glad we did. Salzburg is a charming little city with beautiful sites and famous Hollywood history. We stayed at the Hotel Goldener Hirsh because we have been consistently happy with Starwood properties and this one was no exception. We found a somewhat reasonable rate online at Starwood's website. Sure, we could have stayed a little cheaper; however, the location of this amazingly quaint hotel, not to mention, its quintessential Austrian alp decor made the entire Salzburg experience complete. First, the hotel is located on the Getreidegasse shopping street, which is a fun place to stroll. Second, even though I normally hate McDonalds, in this expensive little town, there is a McDonalds just steps from the hotel that has perfect breakfast choices with an Austrian flair at far reduced costs than the restaurant across the street. The service was stellar. But did not include breakfast. We did get free WiFi though and a complimentary water and turn down service each day. Only downside: no pool or fitness center but the hotel allowed me to use the fitness center at the Sheraton (which was about a mile away but a good warm up before working out).
