AC Hotel by Marriott Copenhagen Bella Sky: Excellent value for money

As part of a business trip to Copenhagen, I stayed in this hotel locatedbetween the airport and the city centerof the Danish capital. Recently integrated into the Marriott network, the AC Hotels chain, of Spanish origin, offers design at the best price, especially in the new hotels built in the last 3 years, like this one. Back on this excellent stay.

Booking

I made this reservation through our corporate travel agency, Egencia. Our negotiated rates being what they are, it is a public ratethat I used for this trip.
Note that the cost of living in Denmark is very high compared to the rest of Europe, and therefore the price of accommodation and food is in line with this cost of living.
Immediately after booking, this one showed up in the Marriott app, a hotel chain on which I’ve been in Platinum status since the 2016 merger with Starwood.

Arrival

The day before I arrived, I received a notification inviting me to check in on the app. So I used this process to complete this formality, which seemed to work. From then on, I noticed my upgrade to a Deluxe room.

Upon actual arrival at the hotel after an Uber ride from the airport, I head to my Elite lane at the hotel reception. The process did not seem any easier than a traditional check-in, despite the warmth and professionalism of the receptionist.
I was assigned my upgraded room, given the keys, and made a reservation at the hotel’s restaurant for that evening.

Room

My room was located on the21st floor of the hotel, with a view of theOrelsünd Bridge and the Swedish coast.

It was indeed much largerthan a standard room according to the evacuation plan, but the space looked quite empty, with the impression of being more in an accessible room than in a Deluxe room.
The entrance is indeed very large.

It leads to the bedroom, with astylish (but impractical) desk on the left and a Scandinavian-stylebed on the right, i.e. with two separate comforters.

So my Marriott Rewards preferences were fulfilled: high floor, extra pillows and extra bath linens.
The bathroom is alsovery elegantly decorated, although the toiletries are of poor quality.

Restaurants

The property hasseveral food outletswith varying hours.
In the evening, the restaurant located on the mezzanineof the reception and the one in the lobby are in charge.

I chose the restaurant located on the mezzanine for dinner, Basalt, a restaurant that offers a much more originaland especially local menu.

An amuse bouche with a fresh cheese with a smoky taste is served, very fine.

As an appetizer, I chose abeef tartar, served unmixed, but with a layer of onions that was too large for my taste ( I admit I have a special taste).

For the main course, an excellent grilled salmon, perfectly cooked and served with its vegetables cooked in the flame.

For dessert, a very fine and not very sweet whiskey ice cream.

An excellent meal, but ahigh billas usual in Denmark

For breakfast, the large room on the second flooris open, with a well-stocked buffetand strange connected taps operable with iPads.

The room is decorated in a Nordic styleand the buffet, although international, has Scandinavian specialties.

Hotel facilities

Since the hotel is very high capacity, it has a comparatively small fitness room.

It also has a spa, which I will not test because of its price including forhotel guests (no discount for frequent travelers).

Conclusion

A good stay then. A very good value for money for Denmark, but expensive in absolute terms. A relaxed service but ahigh qualityrestaurant.
