Rich in history and tradition, the more than 130 year old Grand Hôtel Stockholm occupies prime position on the city's waterfront, a timeless classic that has played a pivotal role in shaping Stockholm as the cosmopolitan city that it is today. One of Scandinavia's leading luxury hotels, Grand Hôtel Stockholm has borne witness to some of the world's greatest achievements, and to this day, continues to makes its presence felt far beyond its shores. Since 1901, the Nobel Prize laureates and their families have all been guests of the Grand Hôtel Stockholm and the list of royalty, heads of state and artists who have stayed is impressive. In the words of a famous past guest, "The Grand is where it happens".
Grand Hôtel offers impressive rooms and suites. The Princess Lilian Suite, with its 330 sqm and a panoramic view over Stockholm, is the most spectacular of them all. The Flag Suite and the Nobel Suite too are renowned, both with an astounding view from the 7th floor. All individually designed, each room has its own distinctive character and colorful history.
Riga has always acted as a meeting point between East and West. Riga’s 15th-century Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; its architectural treasures include medieval churches and the Riga Opera House.Amidst its cobblestone streets is the Grand Palace Hotel, which occupies a mansion that was built in the manner of a Russian czar’s court. Its massive front doors lead to a lobby illuminated by crystal chandeliers. Subtle grandeur continues in the guest rooms, which feature a refined palette of pale blues and golds.
Hotel Continental has been a beacon of luxury since its opening in 1900. Ideally located for business travelers, the property is just 25 minutes from the international airport, and has nine meeting rooms on two floors for conferences and events. Each bedroom is individually designed in a classic or contemporary style, and guests can choose from a tranquil courtyard view, or rooms looking out to the Oslo fjord. The legendary Vienna-style restaurant, Theatercaféen, is on the New York Times list of ten most famous cafés, and features portraits by Henrik Lund and Pedro and Ulf Aas. The hotel is closely connected to the art world and the largest privately owned collection of Edvard Munch paintings hang in the lobby bar, Dagligstuen.
