This week we will be bringing you a special series from contributor Carolyn Banfalvi on the most luxe Alpine hotels in Austria. If you ever fancied a "Sound of Music" getaway, here's how to do it without taking the Vow of Poverty. Any questions or suggestions? Let us know.

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.
