We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott for 2 nights. We landed at Arlanda airport and decided to catch a taxi to the hotel. We didn't realize but each taxi sets their own rates so you should check how much they charge from Arlanda to Stockholm before getting in. We ended up paying 595 SEK from the airport to hotel, and later found out rates can vary from 390 - 600 SEK. Another option would be to take the SuperShuttle and you can just book the shuttle online (we didn't find out about this until we arrived at the hotel).
The hotel itself is large and very clean. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern and everyone was very friendly and helpful. There aren't many restaurants around the hotel so we ended up eating at Bjork (inside the hotel) for dinner one night. The food was great. The bread with cheese they give you as a starter was fantastic. We also tried the caesar salad with grilled cheese, which was delicious. The toast skagen (prawns on toast) was just okay so I probably could have skipped that. The salmon entree was okay, but the cod entree was excellent. A lot of people were also ordering the steak, which looked good but we didn't try it. We also ate breakfast at the restaurant (which was included with our room rate). The breakfast was very good with assorted pastries, sausages, bacon, fruit, juices, made-to-order omelettes, etc.
I would have given this hotel 5 stars if the location was a bit better. We were able to walk to Gamla Stan (about 25-30 minutes), which was a nice walk along the water. However, there really wasn't much around the hotel (there is a park across the street with many joggers, cyclists, etc.).
