Innsbruck & Tirol Hotels
Innsbruck and Tirol is one of the top ski destinations in Europe
. Located in Austria, the Tirol region is in the far western section of the country, and possesses some of the most beautiful landscape on Earth. Innsbruck itself sits at the base of the Austrian Alps, providing exceptional skiing opportunities for skiers from around the world. The area has been inhabited constantly for centuries, and many of the hotels in the area date from as far back as the 17th century.
The Penz Hotel is situated right in downtown Innsbruck, one of Austria's most popular vacation destinations. The hotel features rooms that are very spacious by mainland European standards, and the room amenities are top-notch. The bathrooms feature high-quality toiletries and the views from the windows are incredible. Some rooms overlook the picturesque town of Innsbruck, while others look out to the mountains where thousands of people come to ski. The hotel offers excellent buffet dining, and the bar on the 5th floor of the hotel is often teeming with people until the wee hours of the morning. The guest-relations staff all speak fluent English, so there's no trouble using their services to arrange outings or to make requests. Guests requiring unfettered wheelchair access will find that the Penz is, as of 2009, the only hotel in Innsbruck offering full wheelchair accessibility.
