This hotel development signifies Hyatt’s commitment to thoughtfully expanding its luxury lifestyle portfolio across Europe while also growing the Thompson Hotels collection.

The milestone property is a part of an immersive, cultural development coming to the Austrian capital’s Mariahilferstrasse.

A new cultural destination

A Hyatt affiliate has signed a management agreement with an affiliate of SIGNA and CENTRAL Group to open Thompson Vienna, with an expected opening date of late 2024.

The hotel will be located in a popular retail area of Vienna and it will form a part of a new development also encompassing a high-end KaDeWe department store. Designed for both tourists and locals, the overall development will bring together an array of luxury brands, dining and entertainment as well as hospitality.

“We are excited to be expanding our relationship with SIGNA and CENTRAL Group by introducing plans for Thompson Vienna, the third Hyatt property in the city,” said Felicity Black-Roberts, vice president development Europe, Hyatt.

“Offering a refined residential feel, Thompson Vienna will attract visitors and locals alike with a dynamic social scene, all within the unprecedented development that will integrate high-end shopping, dining, entertainment, fashion and accommodations within one destination.”

Locally inspired design

On opening, Thompson Vienna will host guests in 148 guest rooms. The property will showcase the design of world-renowned architects OMA and interior designers Tara Bernerd & Partners.

The property promises modern, edgy design that’s inspired by the architecture and distinctive character of Vienna and incorporates the Thompson Hotels brand’s signature style and culinary sophistication.

“We are delighted to extend our collaboration with Hyatt on this exciting new landmark hotel for the Viennese social scene,” said Claus Stadler, COO, SIGNA. “Together we will reimagine how retail and hospitality are intertwined to create a high-quality, lifestyle offering for our guests and visitors.”

Thomson Vienna is to become the third Hyatt-branded hotel in the city as it joins Part Hyatt Vienna and Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere.
