The Scandic Plaza is located in the central city. We have often stayed in Scandic Hotels and we are always very pleased with the value and quality of their product, this one was no exception.
Our room was on the eighth floor and offered a wonderful view over the city. The room was spacious, well furnished and immaculately clean.
The desk area offered plenty of electrical outlets for our phones, computers, chargers etc. It's always frustrating to stay in a hotel where there is one outlet which is difficult to reach, usually located under the desk!
Our request for extra pillows and another duvet were honored quickly and we found the bed to be very comfortable.
The breakfast buffet was complete, even for vegans like me. I enjoyed warm oatmeal and several milk alternatives as well as fresh fruits etc. The staff was always helpful and pleasant!
The hotel was very quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay!

Students were wondering about the USA's relationship with Canada, the different laws in the USA and how well they are enforced, and the police force. It is interesting to see the differences between the questions that we were asked in the fourth and fifth grades ...
... of the city. It will definitely be an adventure learning how to use the bus system! We had dinner at a place called Max which is similar to a McDonald's, however, they put sauces on their burgers. Max was founded in Northern Sweden and is one of the largest restaurant chains in the country. The burger was better than McDonald's but definitely still tasted like a fast food burger.

On the first day at the Allstar restaurant our waitress was Swedish and is getting her Masters Degree at the University, but grew up in South Carolina. She "took us under her wing" and has been helping us adjust to the Swedish culture. She invited us to an international fika (pronounced fee-kah). A fika is a break that people all over Sweden take to enjoy coffee, tea, and a pastry while socializing with others. This happens twice a day in between meals ...
