all i can say is wow!!! what a difference a little bit of money can make on a hotel. when this was the royal scandinavian, it was all chintz and maple furniture, really bad. we would go up to santa ynez alot but always had a problem with the hotels and food in solvang. problem solved!! i would go back here in a minute. we dropped in on the way home from big sur and i had checked the rates on line before hand which appeared to be $129 for a king. when we got there, they quoted $199, but after asking about the internet rate (their own website), the front desk checked it and gave us that rate so due some research before if you don't have reservations.
the rooms were wonderful, really great bed, big flat screen, in room fridge and coffee maker. we got the room with the soaking tub although didn't use it, it looked really nice, great bathroom ammenities. i figured some large corporation had to have purchased this property with the thought that solvang would catch on more as a wine destination and it turned out the hotel was purchased by the chumash indians which own the casino up the road. they are really spent the money wisely. the restaurant was really upscale and staffed by just great people.
it really seems solvang is trying to downplay its whole scandinavian little town because i noticed alot more wine bars and shops in town. the sidewalk still rolls up at 6 so don't go expecting a night scene, although this place could change all that.
