Since I was only staying two nights in Stockholm, I decided to stay at the airport instead of the city. Remember, I’m an airline nerd through and through, so this was a totally logical option! It turns out that there are several really good hotels at Arlanda, located in the SkyCity wing of the airport. I chose the RadissonBlu due to it’s good reviews and the fact that I wouldn’t have to exit the airport to check in. I was also hoping for the chance of getting a room with a view of the terminals. That ultimately didn’t happen, as the only rooms available were on the lower floors with views looking directly into the terminal. You can see aircraft parked at the gate from these rooms, but not good enough for photography.

Anyway, having accommodations at the airport would be especially useful on the morning of departure, where I had a 7am flight back to LHR.

As an added bonus, the train station was located directly outside of the main entry to the hotel, so getting to the city center of Stockholm was super easy with the Arlanda Express.
