Sleeping High Above the Danube

The Meliá Vienna hotel opened its doors to guests this week. The latest development from the always-reliable Spanish hospitality brand, the hotel takes up 17 of the 58 floors of Austria's newest and tallest landmark skyscraper, the Donau-City (DC) Tower.

The Meliá Vienna features 253 guest rooms, and a "destination" restaurant/lounge called "57" (on the 57th floor, obviously), counting with 360-degree views of the Baroque city. 

The futuristic design of the property was conceptualized by the French architect Dominique Perrault, who is known for having designed the French National Library in Paris (no biggie). 

This hotel is so new, that down and dirty pictures of the property aren't even out yet. Consider yourself an Austrian trendsetter.
