Trippy to: Hotel Imperial, the Renaissance-style centerpiece hotel in Vienna, built in 1863 by Emperor Franz Josef for his niece and her hubbie the Duke of Wurtemberg; it was used for housing the Duke's guests, and it is still the official hotel for Austrian state guests. Notable guests have run the gamut from Hitler and Wagner to Anthony Quinn.
