Styrian-born Martin Schrödl has been appointed as General Manager of the first MAXX by Steigenberger Hotel in Vienna.

He will bring a young and dynamic management style to the new hotel, which has formed part of the Deutsche Hospitality portfolio since February 2019.

39-year old Mr. Schrödl originally completed vocational education and training in the occupation of restaurant specialist before studying for a business economist qualification. He then held various positions with international hotel chains over a period of six years.

It is aimed at business and leisure guests who focus on the essential and appreciate a central location, well equipped rooms and a convenient level of comfort.” General Manager Martin Schrödl also outlined his main objectives as he takes on this new challenge. “My aim is to work in conjunction with a superbly motivated team to position MAXX by Steigenberger as a successful business hotel on the Vienna market. We will offer our guests a good level of quality, a high-end breakfast service, a cosy atmosphere and the kind of friendly service that reflects Viennese lifestyle.”

The MAXX by Steigenberger Hotel Vienna boasts 195 rooms including 21 suites. There is also a restaurant complete with bar, a conference area and a health and beauty spa and gym facility. The building is the work of the British architect David Chipperfield. Fixtures and fittings are by the Italian designer Matteo Thun, who is also responsible for the entire interior. Deutsche Hospitality will operate the hotel under an international management agreement.
