Concierge.com's insider take:

Probably Salzburg's best-known high-end property, this 69-room mini-Schloss has been an inn since 1407. Its current incarnation as a luxe lodging began with Countess Walderdorff, who opened her hotel here in 1948; much of the antique furniture she collected is still in place. Very much in the bourgeois, traditional style, this is the hotel to choose if you're harboring von Trapp fantasies. Make sure you eat at one of the two excellent restaurants. The Goldener Hirsch, situated in the old stables, is Salzburg's toniest, especially at festival time, when it's the likeliest venue for spotting famous conductors and soloists. The food is traditional Austrian; try the delicious marinated salmon and Kaiser schnitzel with homemade noodles. The Restaurant Herzl is the more folksy option.

Dating to 1407—and renovated in 2010—this hotel is "in the heart of the Old Town," near the cathedral, museums, and Mozart's birthplace. Rooms vary in color (think gemütlich blue, red, yellow, green, and pink tones) and have handcrafted furnishings. "The staff helped us find our way to everything." Tavern-like restaurant Herzl serves Austrian standards.
