The newly opened Danube City (DC) Towers, Austria’s highest building by Parisian architect Dominique Perrault houses the Spanish hotel chain Meli International with the -57 Restaurant & Lounge’ offering a breathtaking 360-degree view over Vienna.

Launched on the same day as the Towers, Feb.26, 2014, the new -Meli Vienna’, is as striking as the building itself. The uniquely designed 250m high skyscraper has a spectacular glass facade and the hotel is anointed with floor-to-ceiling windows, offering an amazing view of the Danube River and the city skyline.

Your very firts steps into the lobby and up the spiralling staircase take your breath away. As the arresting element of the lobby restaurant, -The Flow’, the imposing staircase also serves as an entre to the large ballroom on the first floor. The hotel boasts 1,079 sq m of flexible event space, grand ballroom, and 8 partially combinable conference rooms, apart from being completely equipped with signature restaurants and state-of-the-art amenities, integrated with cutting-edge technology.

Meli Vienna with its new standards of international lifestyle occupies 18 of the 58-floor DC Towers and houses 253 exquisite rooms, including 40 design suites and 200 sq m Presidential Suite with 180-degree panoramic views. The top two floors of the tower are occupied by the -57 Restaurant & Lounge’ that offers a spectacular 360-degree view over Vienna.

The interior is a fusion of minimalist design and monochromatic colour schemes in a purist ambience. An intense sensory experience prevails as one experiences a play of chiaroscuro elements throughout, prancing on a material and textural palette that is rich, and uber chic. The quiet, subdued colour schemes, fine materials and the visual qualities of the folded faade, which gives the tower its distinct liquid, immaterial character, reflecting on a malleability constantly adapting to the light, are ingeniously mirrored in the interiors.

In fact, the physicality of the interior spaces is tangible with its exposed or rather -not-hidden’ structural framework. Stone and metal used in lobbies and circulations contribute to the tower’s generous and reassuring physicality. -The aim is to get the basic horizontality of the city and the public space to coincide with vertical trajectories,- says the architect.

The DC Tower is also the first sustainable or -Green Building’ in Austria.

New Hyatt Wailea Maui Hotel To Open For Beach Weddings In 2013

Hotel and Restorant

Hawaii is to receive a new Hyatt-branded hotel after Hyatt Hotels and Resorts announced that they will be opening the new Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort & Spa in Spring, 2012.

The new hotel will be located on Mokapu and Ulua Beach on the island of Maui, which is a hotspot for idyllic beach weddings, and Michael Stephens has been named as the General Manager.

Set upon 15 acres of land, the new Hyatt resort will take over the hotel that was once the Wailea Renaissance resort. This is the first Andaz-branded property to be built in Hawaii and the brand embraces local culture into its dcor, food and events.

The Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort & Spa will have 325 rooms and suites, a lavish 15,000-quare-foot spa, and 12,000-square-feet of event and meeting space, making it the perfect venue for destination weddings of any size.

Mokapu and Ulua Beach has been a popular setting for romantic beach weddings for many years and the new resort is expected to attract many couples planning on getting married abroad in Hawaii in the near future.

All beaches in Hawaii are open to the public and Mokapu and Ulua Beach is likely to see an increase in visitors once the new hotel is open for destination weddings.

General Manager of Hawaiian Style Weddings, Jana Rothernberg, commented: I think this has been the ideal location for beach weddings on Maui. The location has been un-crowded since the closure of the Wailea Renaissance hotel. Being on the south end of the Island means ideal weather and beautiful sunsets. This will certainly change next year when the Andaz resort opens its doors.
Hawaii is a fantastic destination for island weddings thanks to its idyllic surroundings, a tropical climate and a variety of luxurious hotels and facilities that are available to the bride and groom and their guests.

Hawaiis five main islands Kauai, Maui, Oahu, the Big Island and Molokai – offer plenty of settings for romantic ceremonies such as white sandy beaches against the backdrop of the sparkling turquoise ocean, a wooden gazebo in fragrant tropical gardens, or under an arch that has been decorated with native colourful flowers.

Safety norms for hotel guests

Hotel and Restorant

Staying in hotels has become a regular part of our lives, therefore it is important to make sure that we know and follow the rules of hotel safety.
Maximize fire safety and security by selecting a room located between the 4 and 6th floor Avoid rooms above the sixth floor–the maximum height that fire-department ladders can reach

When possible do not except a hotel on the ground floor that has doors and windows that open to the outside.

For security in motels, avoid ground floor rooms off the parking lot. If you can’t get a room on a higher level, take one facing the inside courtyard.

Look for information in room about fire safety and read to become familiar with nearest fire exit / stairway and locate nearest fire exit.

When you enter your hotel room, make sure the door closes securely and that the deadbolt works. Keep the deadbolt and safety bar on at all time.

Select a hotel with modern electronic guest room locks, as these locks automatically change the lock combination with every new guest so there is little chance of a duplicate key to your room.

There should be fire sprinklers in hotel rooms, hallways, and meeting rooms likewise for smoke detectors.

Each room telephone should allow outside dialing.

Guest phones located in hallways and lobbies should not allow direct room dialing, so anyone using the phone should have to call the operator and request a room by guest name, not room number.

There should be secure locks on windows and adjoining doors.

The hotel should have well-lit interior hallways, parking structures and grounds.

The parking garage should not have elevators taking passengers to guest floors. It should only go to the lobby.

Don’t answer the door in a hotel or motel room without verifying who it is. If a person claims to be an employee, call the front desk and ask if someone from their staff is supposed to have access to your room and for what purpose.

Keep your room key with you at all times and don’t needlessly display it in public. Should you misplace it, please notify the front desk immediately
Close the door securely whenever you are in your room and use all of the locking devices provided.
Check to see that any sliding glass doors or windows and any connecting room doors are locked
Dont invite strangers to your room – ever.
Do not draw attention to yourself by displaying large amounts of cash or expensive jewelry.
Place all valuables in the hotel or motel’s safe deposit box, always.
When returning to your hotel or motel late in the evening, be aware of your surroundings, never be alone, stay in well-lighted areas, and use the main entrance.
Take a few moments and locate the nearest exit that may be used in the event of an emergency.
If you see any suspicious activity, notify the hotel operator or a staff member. Remember it is always “better to safe than sorry”

Finding a Choice Hotel for you Romantic Getaway

Hotel and Restorant

Whether traveling on a honeymoon, an anniversary or just a romantic rendezvous, your resort or hotel will be an important part of the entire experience. Your hotel stay should be comfortable, quiet and conducive to romance. A beachfront villa or room with a view of the water is perfect for your couples retreat.

Your hotel booking will offer you many options in romance. Online booking sites can help you find the most romantic hotel within your budget. Consider an adults-only facility. The pool will be clean and the hotel will be quiet. The atmosphere of an adult-only hotel is different from your average choice hotel. You will enjoy a mature and more relaxed vacation.

Online booking also allows you to find certain amenities to enjoy with that special someone. A couples massage is a great way to unwind together. When doing your hotel booking, ensure that your choice hotel has a spa that offers this service. Hot springs can be another way to spend some quality time together.

When making your hotel booking, be sure to compare all of the options available at nearby resorts in the area. Some may offer private beachfront dinners, breakfast in bed, snorkeling or sailing. Your choice hotel should be able to offer some activities specifically for couples. If you tell them that it is a special occasion, you can often get a room upgrade or some perks. Either contact the hotel or your online booking agent to ensure that the hotel knows that its your honeymoon or anniversary well ahead of time. You might end up with a private hot tub, sparkling wine or a beach view without paying a penny more.

Your choice hotel should have a great reputation. Online booking allows you to review what other customers have said about the hotel. Read the most recent opinions from other travelers to get a good idea of whether the hotel is right for you. Before doing your hotel booking, pay close attention to the hotels reputation for service, cleanliness and food.

Food is often an important factor when doing a hotel booking. A choice hotel will have a variety of food options for seafood lovers, vegetarians and even ethnic foods. If the hotel that you choose does not have the type of food that you like or only offers a limited selection, your experience will not be as great as it could be with the right choice in hotels.

Your online booking site might have all of this information, but if not, it is prudent to do some investigating beforehand. Contact the hotel directly, contact an agent at from the hotel booking site or get a recommendation from a friend who has stayed in the area.

Doing a bit of research beforehand will ensure that your vacation is memorable for all of the right reasons. Online booking is an easy way to check that your choice hotel fits in with your vision of a romantic getaway.

What is a Green Hotel Six Things No Green Hotel Should be Without

Hotel and Restorant

It seems as if you cant turn around anymore without running into something “green.” Nowhere is that more true than in lodging. Green hotels or at least, those calling themselves green are sprouting up everywhere, and travelers are becoming increasingly more aware of what to look for and how to judge whether or not a green hotel actually is well, green!

You want your guests to know without a doubt that theres no green-washing happening at your green hotel. Ive put together a green hotel checklist so you can see how your property stacks up. Does your property have:

Staff Buy-In and Ongoing Education: In a truly green hotel, everyone from the front desk staff to the owner and everyone in between fully understands, supports, practices and can communicate the propertys environmental policies.

A Working (and funded!) Energy Strategy: Todays green hotels go beyond just changing a few light bulbs and implementing a linen reuse policy. They analyze their energy efficiency including conducting Energy Star benchmarking — and then seek out and apply for incentives, rebates and loans that allow them to make meaningful changes in their consumption.

A Green Purchasing Plan: From locally-grown organic produce for its banquet salads to environmentally sensitive cleaning products and furnishings, green hotels know where and how to source the most cost-effective earth-friendly products.

Green Hotel Certification: A green hotel designation from a certifying body that does on-site audits assures your guests that your property has met rigorous environmental standards.

Specialized Marketing: Green hotels recognize that expertly targeted internet marketing is vital to their ongoing success in an increasingly competitive industry.

So how does your property stack up? I know it seems daunting to meet all those requirements, to track down trustworthy, LEED-Accredited Professional advisors, find rebates and incentives, train everybody, and still manage to run a lodging facility who has time for that?

Thats why I created EcoGreenHotel to be a one-stop shop. We have trainers, engineers, financial advisors, purchasing and marketing specialists, thousands of quality green products and a certification program to meet the needs of every type and size of lodging facility at all stages in the green hotel process. We are LEED-Accredited Professionals specializing in energy efficiency. We can help your property achieve all of the above in the most cost-effective way possible, and we can start today.
