Our SAS flight was early in the morning at 7:05am, so we arrived to the Copenhagen airport by 4:30am. We were booked into intra-European business class, which for SAS means an upfront economy seat with the middle seat blocked. It also meant we could fortunately use the business class check-in counter. Even this early in the morning, that line was long and slow, and I noticed the economy line was worse. It took us 40 minutes to wait in line and then check in. The attitude by the SAS associates was cold and apathetic.
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. Being in the northern part of Europe, and in June, the sun was still shining and we had plenty of daylight left for check-in and some exploring. Once you walk into the hotel you turn immediately to the left to find the check-in desks.
