I went with my husband for the weekend to Stockholm and we stayed at the Grand Hotel. I was excited to stay here because generally I tend to prefer smaller, more eclectic boutique hotels - and this was more of your grandmother and grandfather's grand, exquisite type of place. :) I mean that in a good way, by the way...
Upon arrival, we went into the little restaurant/bar/tea area to have some drinks before heading up to the room. It was still late morning but we indulged in some champagne, but most of the patrons were having the tea service - and the desserts (although I don't eat sweets) looked divine. The service was just wonderful and everyone was friendly.
The room - very nice. I wasn't a fan of the decor in the individual guest rooms, however the bathroom blew me away. You can see from the photos that I will post. There were hers/his (or his/his or hers/hers) bathrobes, separate shower from the tub and a large sink area with really nice toiletries.
The area is within walking distance to what seems like everything (though it seems centre Stockholm is pretty much within walking distance to anything). Really enjoyed it.
We did get room service for breakfast one morning and the food spread was great. Good coffee, nice juice, wonderful little jams and delicious eggs. Overall a great hotel and I would definitely stay again if ever I am in Sweden.
