Vienna's new landmark skyscraper - the Donau-City (DC) Tower - will be home to Meliá Vienna when it opens in mid-February 2014.

The stylish 253-room hotel, with design by eminent Parisian architect Dominique Perrault, will be the Meliá Hotels International’s first property in Austria, adding to a global portfolio of more than 350 city and resort hotels.
Designed by the famous Parisian architect Dominique Perrault, the DC Tower is Austria's tallest skyscraper, rising at an impressive 250 metres over the New Danube River. The exterior offers a glazed, clearly structured, minimalistic monolith resembling a geometric waterfall with its façade's breaking edge directed towards the city. The building combines aesthetic architectural design, modern construction and functionality fulfilling the energy and sustainability requirements of a green building, as defined by the European commission.
The hotel’s destination "57 Restaurant & Lounge", headed by chef Siegfried Kröpfl will offer Mediterranean and international food, to a backdrop of 360 degree panoramas of Vienna. Live DJs will provide entertainment for both hotel guests and restaurant visitors, aimed at ‘trendsetters’ and local party-goers.
Meliá Vienna will comprise 17 of the buildings 58 floors, offering a stylish, design-led hotel operating under the Meliá brand. Behind the spectacular façade, the interior features make visual reference to the waterfall motif, with geometric shapes present in the bedheads, bathroom walls, and stone tiles. The stunning floating spiral staircase in the lobby connects three floors, between "The Flow" lobby restaurant and the grand ballroom on the first floor.
Located between the 4th and 15th floors are 253 state-of-the-art bedrooms, among them the expansive Presidential Suite on the 14th floor, accessible via a private lift. The suite’s exceptional design over more than 200 m2 of space is complemented by a stunning 180-degree panoramic view of Vienna. A separate living and sleeping area, a kitchenette, a private boardroom including a lounge for ten people, a home cinema system including a 72-inch LED IP TV, or a lavish bathroom with sauna, infinity bathtub and double rain shower embody luxury at the highest level.
