Hotel Review: Clarion Hotel Sign, Stockholm

With my recent post on the stay twice get 8,000 choice privileges promotion, Ive gotten a few questions about which hotels would be good reward redemptions.  In my opinion most of the Choice hotels in the US are mediocre at best and require a relatively high number of points for a free night when considering the standard cash rate.  Choice hotels in Europe on the other hand occupies a more upscale niche.  I will have a series of 3 posts detailing my experiences with Clarion Hotel Sign in Stockholm, Clarion Hotel Temperance in Malmo, and Clarion Royal Christiana in Oslo.

Clarion Hotel Sign, Stockholm Sweden
Choice Privileges Points: 10,000 for superior room
Average Peak season price: $209-238

Location: Very close to the train station which makes it extremely convenient when coming from the airport.  It is also within walking distance to the old town and main attractions.  It is located next to a park so as long as you are on the park side as i was, there was no noise from the train station.

Room: decor was modern Swedish.  While Ikea might not be to everyones liking, I think they did a very good job at being refined yet simplistic.  My room was a superior Park view room.  The most striking feature of the room was floor to ceiling windows which extended the entire length of the room and provided wonderful views out to the park.  The room was irregularly shaped making it a pseudo suite with the bed in one corner, a sitting room area and the bathroom to the rear.  The room was very open and airy. 

Hotel: The overall design of the hotel is very modern and futuristic.  They have a rooftop lounge area and a free breakfast buffet is provided daily.  Breakfast choices include cereal, bread, pastries, lunch meat, yogurt, fruit and Scandinavian dishes such as salmon and herring.
