Grand Hotel Wien and Vienna City Marathon launch new partnership
January 25th, 2014
The Grand Hotel
Wien and Vienna City
Marathon are starting a new partnership. With 205
rooms and suites, the hotel can offer exceptionally well-appointed
accommodations for a number of athletes from around the world and
make a tangible contribution to the initiative started by its
General Manager Horst Mayer.
'The Grand Hotel's excellent location in the heart of the city, along with its exceptional cuisine and services, inspired me to take up contact with the organizers of the Vienna City Marathon', says Horst Mayer. 'This is how our partnership came into being. We are especially pleased that we are now the host hotel for the Vienna City Marathon, and we are looking forward to contributing to outstanding athletic achievements at the 2014 Vienna City Marathon.' Ever since it first opened in 1870, the Grand Hotel Wien has been the city's premier destination for many national and international guests. More than 40,000 runners make the Vienna City Marathon another important institution that contributes to the flair of Austria's capital. The marathon also happens to be celebrating its thirtieth year in 2014.
The theme for the anniversary year, 'Alles Walzer! Everybody Waltz', is a perfect fit for the Grand Hotel Wien. The stylish ambiance and elegant ballroom at the deluxe hotel make it the perfect complement for the Vienna City Marathon.
