It’s easy to find a hotel in Seefeld, one of the greatest destinations for cross-country skiing in the Austria. The town has one of the highest concentrations of five star hotels in Austria.

While the four star AlpenMedHotel Lamm doesn’t rank among the town’s most luxurious, it has something that few hotels in the word have: a cryotherapy chamber.

Lech and Zürs, two neighboring towns in Austria’s Vorarlberg region, are among the country’s most fashionable ski resorts. Skiers love the ski pass system here, in which passes are valid on a huge network of lifts spanning several towns.

Zürs is solely a ski town, with no actual residents just a row of hotels, which is why the more year-round Lech attracted me more. Lech, too, has tons of hotels, and the central Die Krone Von Lech is one of its stand-outs.

Despite its location smack in the center of Kitzbühel, rooms at the Hotel Schwarzer Adler have gorgeous mountain views,some with floor-to-ceiling windows. From the outside, the place might look like your typical Tyrolean ski chalet, but the hotel has done so much updating in recent years that it feels more like a super-stylish boutique property.

The spacious rooms feature either a cozy country-style decor or a sleek and minimalist one, all with high-tech amenities like iPod docking stations, stereo systems, and flat-screen TVs.

You Might Just Want to Relax at The Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol

The financial crisis rocking the world certainly wasn’t visibly affecting Austria’s ritzy Alpine ski resorts last month, where the snow is deep, the après ski scene is just as vital as the skiing itself, and the luxury hotels seem to be doing brisk business.

Austrians start learning to ski almost as soon as they can walk, which can make skiing in the Alps intimidating for the less-proficient. While each town/resort has a different feel and attracts a different sort of visitor, even non-skiers will love the Alps, especially if they’re holed-up in one of the area’s slew of gorgeous hotels.

Kitzbühel is one of Austria’s poshest Alpine towns, and while there are budget accommodations to be found, those without thick wallets might feel out of place here. Kitzbühel has more than skiing to brag about--it’s also one of the loveliest towns in the Alps, with Medieval churches, tidy cobble-stoned streets, and snow-topped mountains in every direction.

And the Hotel Schloss Lebenberg seems to be made for most of Kitzbühel’s monied visitors.

Schloss Velden Has Everything in Alpine Austria

Luxury in an Austrian castle is a special kind of luxury, we think. And it's just opened up in the form of Schloss Velden, a magical yellow palace on the shore of Lake Woerth. Built in 1607 and later serving as a hotel for a century, it closed down in 1991 and has recently reopened as a Capella Resorts property.

Well known amongst the "elite" of Europe over the years as a high standard retreat, the new version of the Schloss Velden has an eye on modern luxury, with standard features like this:

a central computer system that controls all of the room's functions from the bedside, rainforest showerheads, LCD televisions, wireless Internet access, iPod docking stations, refreshment centers, and marble bathrooms with LCD televisions.

It also has a huge onsite spa center which includes a salt aroma steam room, a genuine Finnish sauna, and a "chill-out room" with--they say--real snow falling, one of just three such rooms in the world. It's starting to sound more like a tourist attraction than simply a hotel! If it all gets too impressive, you can get upset about the new extension that's not in an olde worlde castle style: some say it's great architecture and some say it's just not right.
