Hotel Imperial, Vienna $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
In 1873, the former residence of the Prince of Württemberg was redone as the discreet Hotel Imperial. Since then, boldface names from Queen Elizabeth II to Charlie Chaplin to Brangelina have settled in among the velvet brocade curtains and cherry cabinets. This 138-room hotel veritably drips with royal treatment—right down to the hand-ironed newspaper your butler delivers with the morning coffee. While the lack of a full-service spa and the nine-euro-per-hour Internet charge won't win the slightly drowsy Imperial a new wave of digital fans, the supernal room-service—order the Tafelspitz with chive sauce—is something worth e-mailing home about.
