Having stayed here twice before, we were again blown away by the hotel and its staff.
First things first: the hotel comes with a HUGE price, but it delivers.
Although not having booked through Starwood, our Preferred Guest Gold membership was honoured and we received a double upgrade to a Junior Suite with views towards the Festspielhaus :-) Despite the room looking on the busy street next to the Festspielhaus, there was no noise whatsoever.
The room (as the other rooms we stayed in before) was ultra-cozy and fitted with rustic, alpine furniture (some reviewers apparently can't tell junk from antiques). The bathroom with separate toilet/bidet, bathtub and shower had tiles in an appropriate alpine look.
All staff are highly trained and have perfect manners.
Breakfast, again, is VERY expensive, but staff, high class food and setting are well worth it (nevertheless try to get a rate including breakfast!)
For dinner, I would recommend the hotel's "s' Herzl" restaurant next door as the food is almost as good as in the main restaurant, but it's far less expensive and the setting is more relaxed.
I also highly recommend the unusual hotel bar offering the hotel's signature drink "Sabine".
