Grand Hotel Stockholm Review: Opened in 1874, this sophisticated, historically significant property enjoys a sweeping harbor-front location. The 368 guest rooms include 37 suites, the highlight being the Princess Lilian Suite in the new addition, with two bedrooms, a sauna and a private cinema. All accommodations feature elegant styling combined with service that can only be described as exceptional. It’s no wonder, as this discreet hotel has long welcomed dignitaries and celebrities, and its legacy includes hosting the Nobel Banquet from 1901 to 1929, until the event was moved due to a need for more space. For dining, guests can choose from Mathias Dahlgren’s twin restaurants, whose menus offer interpretations of Swedish cuisine, and the Veranda, which is a must for visitors --- its classic smorgasbord is complete with herring and Aquavit. The hotel’s location is ideal for those who want to be centrally located in terms of touring and shopping, after which a treatment at the on-site Raison d’Etre spa is a relaxing way to bring the day to a close.
