Unlike the Horror Movie, The Ring Hotel Will Pamper You
Any idea what a "casual luxury" hotel is? We're not sure either, but apparently Vienna's new The Ring Hotel is a shining example of one. We have a feeling it doesn't mean that you can run around in your oldest shorts and flip-flops, but instead it sounds like they're trying to saying The Ring is a place where you can get everything you want but without any snootiness. Sound okay?
It's called The Ring--not the name we'd choose thanks to the scary movie franchise, but there is a reason--because it's located on Kaerntner Ring, one of the streets that forms a loop around the center of Vienna. Actually it's in a great spot, almost opposite the Opera House and that means you can walk to many places around town, and also have easy access to public transport. And it's still a relatively small hotel with 68 rooms and suites.
Their current seasonal special has a catchy name: "Enjoy Spring at The Ring!" and rates start from 199 (US$310) per night (not including breakfast), which is a lot cheaper than their rack rates. They also have a "Luxury Before Birth" package which is a BabyMoon for couples about to expect their first child--for 549 (US$860) you get 2 nights' accommodation, energy wellness breakfast, a pre-natal massage for Mom and a beauty treatment for Dad, a limo tour through Vienna and a few free gifts.
In the interests of single parents-to-be they even offer the same if you pay a single supplement. Figure that one out.
