SVEA Hotel Review

: SVEA is a boutique hotel for business travelers and lovers of Sweden --– “Svea” is actually a girl’s name recently experiencing an upswing in popularity in Sweden, derived from the name of the tribe that conquered Sweden. Special services include flat-rate business pricing, with 24-hour cancellation privileges, a $50 gift certificate for every five nights spent at SVEA and advance shipping or suitcase storage. The SVEA motto is “lagom,” a Swedish idiom for describing something that is just enough and not too much. In keeping with this, rooms are furnished with a simple elegance and select decorative touches, such as carved mantelpiece clocks and sweet-faced stuffed animals, to make rooms feel personal, but not overdone. Accommodations come with flat-screen TVs and complimentary wireless Internet. Guests can choose a time to have breakfast delivered in a basket or request suggestions for restaurants nearby. Located in a Victorian home built in the 1890s, SVEA offers the intimacy of a residential location within a short drive of several ski resorts, historical landmarks and downtown Salt Lake City.
