Hotel Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom

Vienna, Austria

Blatantly abstract in a city better known for Baroque excess, the Hotel Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom swaps palatial largesse for eye-popping panache. Conceived by the Pritzker Prize–winning French architect Jean Nouvel – whose acclaimed projects have included the Philharmonie de Paris as well as countless luxury high-rise developments – the slightly aslant hotel was conceived as living art, with large walls of glass and brightly patterned ceilings that seem to embrace the cityscape and Danube River. Despite the avant-garde tone in the public areas, Nouvel’s guest rooms are simplified for more comfortable stays, featuring a white-grey-and-black colour palette with luxuries like sliding shoji screens and large soaking tubs in the bathrooms.
