We planned a short trip to Copenhagen with one main objective: to eat well. (We did) So, our accommodations didn't have to be fancy, just comfortable and conveniently located. Copenhagen was packed on the weekend we visited- Fashion Week, Copenhagen Triathlon, 500th Anniversary of the Royal Danish Navy- so we lucked out in getting a reservation at the Scandic Front Hotel. From our room, we could see the harbor and we were just a short walking distance to great shopping and the quaint cobblestones of Nyhavn. The stylish, but no-frills hotel was a hub of activity the weekend we stayed there. Every sleekly-furnished room was booked, the lobby was ground zero for hoards of fashionistas and athletes, and the hotel hosted the weekend's big D&G party. It was a fun, if slightly chaotic place and a great introduction the energy of Copenhagen. If you go, make sure to book a non-smoking room with a water view.
