Our trip this time was multi-purpose...business with a visit from our son who is living in DK. From the moment we arrived (early, we shouldn't have been able to check in till afternoon) the front desk staff was more than gracious! Our room was not yet available so we were invited to slip into the closed breakfast room and get coffees to tide us over till the room was ready. They took our bags and then delivered them to the room so we didn't have to be concerned about their safety while we explored the property. (The room was ready less than an hour after we arrived. They have a lovely work out room that is open 24 hours. A great pool/hot tub, sauna/ steam room area. It is always staffed, and you get two huge towels for using. There is a bar, lots of places for relaxing...not your standard hotel "pool" experience. Breakfast was International and for the American palate offers items you normally would never experience in the U.S. (While also providing made to order omelettes and other familiar foods.) Great for teaching your kids and letting them experience new/cultural differences. Wake up calls were great....we were asked during that first call if we wanted a 2nd call in ten min.s....for those of us who fall back asleep after the alarm goes off! We stayed nine nights. I walked the city center, looked for bakeries and shopped, drank coffee and marveled at the history and architecture. It was cold but certainly walkable! Especially with so many places to duck in and get warm and look at all the offerings the city has to offer. The staff was so nice. We asked a variety of questions and always got gracious answers...There is a business center with two nice computers set up for visitor use. That is one thing...no free wifi access. You will pay if you want computer access in your room. But I found the computers available everytime I wanted to check mail or send it. Lots of TV channels....CNN and BBC channels in English.
Our son joined us for 3 nights....he had a great time using the spa facilities and was treated well. As an 18 year old traveling alone he has been treated less than graciously...Here he was accepted and treated as the adult he is! After a few days stay we received a note from the general manager in our room with complimentary hand made chocolates as a thank you for staying....I think you will find this a great location for any and all occasions...Enjoy! OH, don't miss the big fluffy robes for your use....perfect for your trips down to the spa! Just bring slippers or flip-flops!
