We stayed at the Copenhagen Island Hotel for two nights in August 09 (two nights after our wedding) and we also stayed at the hotel when I proposed (New Years Eve). The first time I didn't tell the staff anything about the proposal, but oddly enough we received a complimentary box of heart shaped chocolates from the Hotel and when we asked some of the other guest if they received one, we were told they didn't, so that was a great little touch. The second time we stayed there, they knew we were getting married and they were very helpful to both us and those of our guests who stayed there as well - we held the wedding on the other side of the harbor so the location couldn't be better for us, but there is a good 10-15 minutes walk to the city center of Copenhagen.
Make sure to book an executive room at the end of one of the two the wings as you'll then have a lot better view. You can book a city or harbor view and I recommend the harbor view.
The included breakfast is also spotless, very fresh and the staff was very helpful and joked around - especially the first time we were there. It's all the small things that makes a difference and Copenhagen Island do have a lot of those twists making it very enjoyable to stay there.
Extra: The hotel is located just next to the biggest shopping center in central Copenhagen and therefore you'll never run out of opportunities to shop till you drop or just have a coffee in one of the many cafes.
It is also very close to a S-train station, and from there it takes 1-2 minutes and then you're in the city center.
Finally it's very close to The Mariott, so if you're traveling as a group and if either one of the hotels is booked it's very convenient to try out the other one.
