Radisson Blu Stockholm Unveils New Garbo Suite
December 26, 2012 at 8:31 PM
It’s no secret we love a swanky suite, but ones dedicated to Hollywood divas of yesteryear are even better. The Radisson Blu Strand Stockholm is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a new suite named after one of its most famous guests, Greta Garbo.
The Greta Garbo Suite is inspired by the star's costumes and jewelry, as well as art and items from her movies of which grace the black and gold room, and were given to the hotel by Garbo’s family, who still holiday there and had a hand in the design.
Garbo, who was born in Sweden, first visited the 152-room hotel as an aspiring actress back in the ‘20s and it continued to be her favorite spot well after she made it big in Tinseltown.
Local stylist Maria Nordin used furniture by Sits and Frejas Boning, lighting by Kamelo, and memorabilia from the official Greta Garbo Museum in Hogsby, Sweden.
We like the current package on offer at the hotel, where you can spend the night in this glamorous suite, receive a half-bottle of champagne (should be a full, but we’ll take it), breakfast for two, free WiFi, and a late checkout (because sleeping in is a must) for SEK 6500 per person ($999).
