Clarion Hotel Sign Stockholm is one of two hotels in Sweden’s capital city available for 10,000 Choice Privileges points. The hotel is within a few hundred meters of Arlanda Express, central train station and Flygbussarna airport transportation making this hotel a convenient location for a transit through Stockholm. This also means a $75 hotel room in the city is accessible through the purchase of Choice Privileges points with PointsPlusCash bookings.

Stockholm is frequently the lowest priced airline ticket for travel between California and Europe. Major carriers in all three alliances and low cost carriers like Norwegian make Stockholm an easy travel base for travel all over Europe. Many low cost carriers operate from Stockholm to destinations across Europe.

Clarion Hotel Sign is a hotel I have stayed at many times over the past three years. Stockholm is my most frequently ticketed origin or destination due to cheap ticket prices.

Last week I flew into Stockholm Skavsta NYO, 100 km southwest of the city and an 80 minute, 139 SEK/$15 Flygbussarna bus ride to Stockholm Central Station. Clarion Hotel Sign is about a 5 minute walk from the spot where the bus stops in Stockholm.

Once inside City Terminal where there are markets and cafes, walk right and follow signs to Metro and down the escalator. Turn left again on the lower floor and walk through Arlanda Express train ticket terminal and out to the street. Once outside,walk left hugging the building sidewalk for about 250 meters parallel to the train tracks to Clarion Hotel Sign.

While there is self check-in, the receptionist was available and personably engaged me to check in with her. A key to room 902 put me in a higher location than I usually stay at the 10-floor hotel.

The bank of four elevators are a unique feature to the hotel.

Lagom is a Swedish word meaning ‘just the right amount’ and Scandinavian design of rooms at Clarion Hotel Sign has a kind of Nordic zen for simplicity with all you need.

The square out front is the historic working class gathering place for the start of demonstrations. May 1 ‘May Day’ is still an annual active gathering here from what I have read.

Clarion Hotel Sign Complimentary Breakfast

One of the differences between continental and American breakfast is no vegetables for Americans.

An observation I generally make in Stockholm are healthy eating habits and exercise give most people a pretty good look.

Yogurts, cheeses, milk and lactose free milk in abundance are more of the buffet table selections. Eggs and bacon/sausages are available too with a variety of juices and fruits. Pancakes are a common meal item in Scandinavia.

The final part of the hotel is the 8th floor spa and pool. There is also a 2nd floor fitness room, however, I skipped that space on this stay.

In all my stays at Clarion Hotel Sign I have only been in a park facing room in the front of the hotel.

Clarion Hotel Sign Stockholm

Clarion Hotel Sign is one of the best deals in Stockholm when redeeming Choice Privileges points. The price to buy 10,000 points is $75 when purchasing points through Choice Privileges Points Plus Cash reservations. Points purchased at the price of $7.50 per 1,000 points through Points Plus Cash bookings are returned to your account if the reward stay is canceled.

This hotel is regularly over $150 per night. The room rate for the date of my stay was 1,790 SEK/$192.

Unlike Choice Privileges seasonal reward rates changing every few months for most of the 6,000+ hotels worldwide, the 200 hotels in Nordic Choice Privileges are stable rates that infrequently change. Clarion Hotel Sign and Clarion Hotel Stockholm have both been 10,000 points per night for the past four years.

    For singles or couples I agree that Clarion Hotel Sign is one of the best deals in central Stockholm when redeeming points in general. Traveling with family I tend to stay at Scandic, you can squeeze 4 in a room and breakfast is included.

    What happened to travel out of Florida rental deals this spring?

  • Ric Garrido March 14, 2019

    Have not even thought about Florida for this year. My trip to Europe for the Aegean Gold elite status was my splurge solo trip. And heading back to Europe in a few weeks.

    Need to save money for May’s Daily Getaways sales when I plan to restock hotel points for the rest of the year’s travel. Best Western, Choice and Hilton are in my plans. I need sufficient points to cover 5 or 6 weeks in hotels for 2018 and early 2019 travel. Right now only IHG Rewards Club is a program where I have a good supply of hotel points available.

  • Cori March 17, 2019

    I just made a couple of bookings on points for the Clarion Collection hotels in Sweden this week, and for some strange reason none of the points were deducted from our accounts even though at the last page of the booking process, it said the points would be deducted. All of the reservations were confirmed too and we received confirmation emails also. Have you experienced this issue with Choice reward booking previously?

  • Ric Garrido March 18, 2019

    @Cori – not that I recall. This is common for Best Western Rewards. Generally points deduct immediately for my Choice reservations and post back immediately when I cancel a reservation.

    I have booked a couple of hotel stays using Choice privileges points in Sweden in the past month.

    I would not worry as long as you have reservation confirmation emails.
