There are two Radisson SAS hotels in Copenhagen, but we infinitely prefer this one because of its pedigree, although its competitor, the Radisson SAS Scandinavia, attracts those with more modern tastes. The Royal, Copenhagen's first skyscraper, in the city center near Tivoli and Town Hall Square, is famous within the orbit of the Danish design world because of the role of Arne Jacobsen, one of the patriarchs of Danish design. Between 1958 and 1960, he designed not only the hotel but also most of the furnishings within it. Today the building is classified as a historic monument that retains most, if not all, of Arne Jacobsen's original mandates. Rooms are beautifully furnished and well maintained, with light maple furnishings and the world-famous Jacobsen lamps. The most requested chamber is no. 606, which is kept just as it was in 1960, except for paint and repairs. All the Jacobsen furnishings in this room are original, including the radiators. Several of the units open onto views over the Tivoli Gardens and the rooftops of Copenhagen. At the Business Club, on the top floors, guests can take advantage of a lounge and speedier check-ins.
