Grand Hôtel Stockholm

There’s a fine line between a grande dame and an old maid. The Grand has been trying to keep on the right side of that line for many years. They’ve refurbished the rooms, and given them lighter, more modern décor. They’ve spruced up the bar, giving it a regal amethyst-and-emerald color scheme. The restaurant, one of the hotel’s main attractions, continues to excel with its famous smorgasbord in the summer and Julbord (Christmas table) in the winter. The hotel has even added an impressive spa in the basement that has a wonderfully Nordic vibe to it. Where better to get a Swedish massage?

And yet… there’s still a historic feel to the place, and there probably always will be. There’s a certain distinguished atmosphere that no amount of modernizing seems to entirely blow away, probably in part due to the fact that the hotel welcomes the Noble laureates every December, as well as many large conferences throughout the year. The location is terrific, right in the heart of town, next to the National Museum and an easy walk from the Modern Museum, and the view of the palace and harbor are unrivaled. You should certainly splurge on a room with a water view. And whether you are a guest in the hotel or not, having a meal at one of Mathias Dahlgren's two on-property restaurants, Matbaren and Seafood Gastro, is a must. A third restaurant, Grand Soliel, overlooks the water and is inspired by the French and Italian Rivieras.
