The Historic Hotel Imperial Vienna is approaching its 140-year anniversary and to celebrate, the Luxury Collection hotel is getting a much needed renovation of its public areas. The two-part, $14-million restoration will focus on updating the hotel to its original grandeur image while at the same time adding new social venues for affluent travelers. This will include new concepts for the restaurant, bar and cafť and updates to the current meeting and event spaces. Neighboring its walls is the world-famous music hall Musikverein which will also be restored and connected to the hotelís entrance. Phase one will go from July 1-December 30 and the second phase will begin in January 2014 with hopes of completion by June.
