We arrived at the Radisson Blu 1919 around 7AM and were not surprised that we could not check-in. I was also not surprised that Club Carlson Gold members do not get free breakfast, a brash assumption that I made in Tahiti. Sleep deprived and confused by our surroundings,
Unlike the mediocre Radisson Strand Stockholm this hotel was excellent. The outside architecture was unique, making it stand out from the surrounding Soviet Bloc buildings. The front desk promptly told me I was upgraded to the Business Class floor, meaning free Wi-Fi, a larger room, and complimentary breakfast.
