Hotel Sacher Salzburg
Perched on the banks of the Salzach River, Salzburg’s grande dame drips with old-world charm and Austrian tradition. The interiors brim with antiques, crystal chandeliers, fine art, and a traditional style that feels transportive, while the guest rooms, many of which were refurbished in 2016 for the hotel’s 150th anniversary, expertly marry old-fashioned elegance with a modern touch. Luxe textiles and antiques go hand-in-hand with flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and iPod docks, and marble bathrooms come stocked with the hotel’s own line of chocolate-scented toiletries. A stay here is incomplete without a slice of the eponymous cake, served with a generous dollop of whipped cream in the hotel’s atmospheric café. Preface it with refined Austrian fare in the oak-paneled and antler-festooned Zirbelzimmer Restaurant, or grilled meats and fish at the folksy Salzachgrill. Afterward, enjoy a nightcap in the denlike bar, which spills out onto a riverside terrace.
