It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Sheraton Salzburg Hotel, Salzburg, Austria

For our last two nights in Salzburg we moved to the Sheraton Salzburg Hotel, on the other side of the river and were given a lovely large room on the second floor.  Again it had opening windows which I think is great, and a large king bed with the European "duvet per person", unfortunately these were winter duvets and we were there in summer.  The room was air-conditioned, but it didn't really work terribly well, and we were a bit stifling.

One huge downside for me in any hotel room is a lack of blackout curtains, and this hotel seriously didn't have any.  Our room was bright enough to read the paper in by about 5.30am, but that's pretty much the only downside.

There was a really good SPG lounge on the 7th floor, with both indoor and outdoor areas.  It looked new and everything was stylish.  The breakfast was good, mainly cold selections, but also a bain marie containing eggs, bacon and mushrooms.  The coffee was freshly made by a whizz-bang machine and it was really good, we had several!  There were also nibbles and drinks there in the afternoon.

There's car parking under the hotel for €17.50/day - good value.
