Copenhagen Admiral Hotel

There are not any Hyatt or Starwood hotels in the city of Copenhagen. There is a Marriott, but it was booked up for the dates we were visiting, so we ended up booking an independent hotel – the Copenhagen Admiral Hotel. Our flight from Vienna arrived later in the day and after a 30-minute cab drive from the airport we arrived at 8:30pm.

The timing was good as we happened to have a lot of Hyatt stays planed, and the challenge was successfully completed. I requalified in 2015, and both Susan and I have found a lot of value in maintaining my diamond level with Hyatt.
