The Arlanda Express train is a fast and economical (by comparison) way to go from ARN to the city center. I was only a few blocks away from the Sheraton Stockholm, home for the next two nights. My parents stayed there a few years ago and liked it; it's also the only SPG property in town. The hotel seems busy at all hours, luckily they honor the SPG elite lane and I was quickly checked in to a corner suite. The room was a little bit dated and the air conditioning was woefully under powered (it also needs the air filter changed more frequently than the carpet is changed). Luckily the windows opened, so I settled for a nice breeze. The hotel is in a great location or tourism and work.

I would return to the Sheraton if I'm in Stockholm again, but I hope the renovate the rooms before then. I'd also like the Hilton to not be $400/nt so I can try the competition.

After my two days were up (royal palace, Vasa museum, wandering around), I was heading back to Denver. My girlfriend was able to change my flights to remove a long stopover in Chicago and a short stop in Houston. Originally booked for ARN-ORD-IAH-DEN I was now on a simple ARN-FRA-DEN trip with a brief, almost too brief, stop in Frankfurt.
