Vienna: Hyatt has signed a management agreement with an affiliate of SIGNA and CENTRAL Group to develop the Thompson Vienna as part of a retail store.
Slated to open in late 2024, the 148-room hotel will be located on Mariahilferstrasse (Mariahilfer Street) as part of a KaDeWe high-end department store.
It will mark the third Hyatt-branded hotel in the city, joining Park Hyatt Vienna and Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere.
Architects OMA and interior designers Tara Bernerd & Partners will oversee the look and feel of the property.
Felicity Black-Roberts, VP development for Europe at Hyatt, said: “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. 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.”
Claus Stadler, COO at SIGNA, said: “We are delighted to extend our collaboration with Hyatt on this exciting new landmark hotel for the Viennese social scene. Together we will reimagine how retail and hospitality are intertwined to create a high-quality, lifestyle offering for our guests and visitors.”
The development follows Hyatt’s recent announcement of the Thompson Hotels brand debut in Spain.
