Crowne Plaza CopenHagen Towers
Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
We said an almost tearful goodbye to stunning Iceland and took an early morning flight to Copenhagen.
We checked in the hotel, which turned out to be rather disappointing, and headed to stroll the lovely (yet empty) streets of Copenhagen (Easter time, I guess).
Of course, we did not miss the Little Mermaid and severa; other main attractions …
... at that time--there is an amazing tower one can climb (500 steps) but it was closed today.
We then just wandered over to the Grote Markt which is the center of town. We stopped at the Neuhaus Chocolate shop for a little Belgian chocolate! Wow was that ever good. It was beginning to rain harder so we decided to stop for dinner--at de Met restaurant on the square. Becky had curried rice and spinach plus fried goat cheese and ...
The Royal Princess is living up to its name. It’s the most beautiful ship we have been on. The food and entertainment is at its best. Again we are on the 10th floor, and the cabin is very light and spacy with a balcony. Being on the 10 floor means also we can climb plenty ...
... museum. But we didn't go inside. The Radhus - the city hall, was built in 1905 and is a very large red brick building with some pretty turrets. In front of the building is a large square with various statues. On the front of the building is a golden statue of the Bishop Absalon, who apparently founded the city back in 1167. There was some event going on (couldn't work out what!), so much of the square was behind barriers and the other half of the square was a ...
... transfered over from my camera. Each set of 5 photos on average takes 5 minutes. 25% of the time, a photo upload attempt fails and has to be done over. This is my 134th entry. So far 3,200 photos have been uploaded. So I calculate that at around 12,040 minutes (including 25% redo on photos), or approximately 200 hours.

I booked this Hotel based on the free airport shuttle and the proximity of the hotel to public transportation (just a block's walk from the hotel). I used this hotel for 1 day pre cruise and 1 day post cruise. The taxi from hotel to Freeport cruise port cost 50 dollars but we shared with another couple as this hotel was the recommended one for the cruiseline we were traveling with. I would recommend this hotel for convenience for the stated reasons; be aware, however that breakfast runs about 35 dollars and cocktails will set you back 25 if purchased in hotel bar.
