It’s not a claim that you see often, but hey, all travel products seek differentiation. What makes the Ritz-Carlton Vienna different? While all hotels can say they have great service and great accommodations (although Ritz-Carlton Vienna’s really does excel), not all can claim to have their city’s best hot chocolate. Ritz-Carlton Vienna does make such a claim. Is it a valid one? I’m no expert (although I do love chocolate), but I’d venture to an enthusiastic yes.
I spent about 30 minutes with Ritz-Carlton’s Tristan K. R. Mißner, who explained the concept to me. The hot chocolate begins with pure dark chocolate, 72 percent or higher cocoa content, which is melted and mixed only with water.
At 16 euros, the hot chocolate here is an experience and an education. Mißner and his staff are finding that guests spend from 45 minutes to 90 minutes lingering over cups of the tasty beverage. You can also do a fondue of sorts, dipping berries and fruits into the chocolate.
For chocolate lovers, it is hard to think of a better way to spend an hour in the heart of Vienna.
