Radisson Blu Royal Hotel

Hammerichsgade 1, Vesterbro, Copenhagen, Capital Region, 1611, Denmark

This 1960 Arne Jacobsen high-rise has been fully restored as a paean to the legendary designer and will appeal to those who want class mid-century design along with more modern comforts. The graceful lobby has brown and green leather Jacobsen Swan and Egg chairs that are arranged in circles and illuminated by the ceiling's recessed lights. Rooms are paneled in light maple and outfitted with Jacobsen chairs and lamps. Even the heavy door handles, functionally designed to fill the palm, were created by Jacobsen. The most famous room is 606, looking precisely as it did in 1960, with all the original furnishings, including a nifty desktop that opens to reveal a lighted makeup mirror. Many of the rooms have views over Tivoli and the city center's copper-top buildings. The top-floor restaurant, Alberto K, serves top-notch Scandinavian-Italian cuisine. Sometimes the weekend rates include breakfast so be sure to ask.
