Busy hotel. Next to the train station and more importantly, very close to Arlanda Express - the high speed train to Arlanda Airport (that in itself is impressive).
Reminds me of hotels in Hong Kong, lots of dance music (house not waltz) and musically themed elevators. Which reminds me, the evevators are not speedy. They seem to go up and down and up and never wind up on floor E which is the main level. The elevators each have a different music theme like electric guitar or DJ mixer desk.
The room was fine. I still cannot adjust to the skinny beds and skinny duvets but this seems to be par for the course. The bathroom however was plain weird. There is a curved piece of toughened glass which moves a little but this blocks most of the water from soaking the entire bathroom. The toilet however, gets fully washed. Yes, soaked. And no way to stop that either and so if you need to use the facilities after the shower, you have to dry both the toilet and floor around it. Like I said, weird.
Breakfast is nice. Lots of choices and techie touches like iPads to control the orange juice. The idea is to grab a plate, fill it and find a spot anywhere. It almost works.
Dinner is well, not so good. Long delays with table service. Just nobody showing up and this when it wasn't busy. Truth is, the wait staff were too busy chatting. When I did get the food it was okay but a $38 dollar should be better than just okay.
Checkin was long. Very long. Check out was actually not bad but, I stayed two nights and, my room was not cleaned. I was at meetings all day and so this was a bit of a surprise.
Summary - expensive place with poor service in many areas. Beware.
