Featuring several hundred prominent guests, spectacular entertainment and a selection of food from the Radisson Collection properties worldwide, the celebration of the iconic Radisson Collection Hotel, Strand Stockholm, was an evening no one will soon forget.
he theme of the party was a celebration of joy and decadence, paying tribute to the stars like Greta Garbo who frequented the Strand Stockholm. This saw our clients, locals, team-members, partners and friends come together to marvel at the amazing renovation work – all while enjoying signature Radisson Collection drinks.

A true Stockholm icon
Originally launched in 1912 for the Olympics, the Strand Stockholm quickly established a reputation as a local hotspot beloved by stars, such as Swedish actors Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman. A particularly popular part of the hotel was the Sea Salon, today the Sea Salon Suite, which boasts remarkable views of the city’s Royal Dramatic Theater.
Earlier this fall, the newly refurbished Stockholm hotel became part of Radisson Hotel Group’s most exceptional collection of hotels worldwide. Following a two-year renovation led by the acclaimed Swedish architectural studio Wingårdhs, the hotel has been completely renewed – creating a guest experience that’s better than ever.
All 170 guest rooms and suites, meeting spaces, the lobby, restaurant and bars have been refreshed. The result is a striking ode to effortless modern living – inviting both locals and hotel guests to enjoy atmospheric spaces that celebrate Stockholm’s vibrant social scene.
During the party, guests were invited to take a tour of the house to see the changes for themselves. This offered a superb way to enhance an already-enchanting evening and make it clear that our new hotel was the real star of the show.
It was an honor to be part of this magical event and join with our guests to celebrate the bright future that lies ahead for the Radisson Collection Hotel, Strand Stockholm.
We’re excited to have joined Radisson Collection, and look forward to providing guests with truly unique experiences at our iconic hotel.
