Our visit to the official hotel
Published 2nd March 2017
Ahead of the Nordic Affiliate Conference, we took a trip to Stockholm to look at the venue and official hotel, the Grand Hôtel, Stockholm. As always, we have negotiated preferential room rates with the hotel, and you can book your room here.
One of our main aims when organising the Nordic Affiliate Conference was to ensure an amazing delegate experience, and after our visit to the Grand Hôtel we are pretty excited to come back and share it with you. Below are some of our favourite pictures of the venue.
This is the outside of the conference and the epic view from inside - we were blown away!
We all know it is the inside the counts, and it definitely doesn't disappoint. The room below with the *chandelier" will be the main expo room and is called the "Hall of Mirrors" (no relation to the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles...). The conference room is the Vinterträdgården or "Winter Garden" which was built in the early 1900s, when the hotel’s managing directress Wilhelmina Skogh wished to create an ever-green garden to compensate for the chill outside.
The rooms are also fantastic, and according to the Shona ODonnell pillow and sheet rating - these scored a 10/10 for the softest sheets and fluffiest pillows around!
We also happened to miss out on pancake day back in the UK but discovered that selma is what is traditionally eaten in Sweden and it is AMAZING. We ate all of this...
