About Elite Stadshotellet
In 1870, when the hotel was first opened, there was access to materials, skills and expertise that we can only dream about today. An abundance of marble, hardwood and crystal chandeliers created a unique and very special atmosphere. The skilled craftsmen who created the stucco work and ornamental decoration gave Stadshotellet Karlstad the appearance that it has managed to retain through to the present day, reflecting true quality and craftsmanship throughout. When it was first built, the hotel was one of the largest and finest hotels in Sweden. Each year wealthy timber magnates would gather at the hotel and this annual tradition still lives on.
The hotel acquired electricity in 1904 and a few years later heating pipes were fitted inall the rooms as well as a toilet on each floor, which was regarded as the ultimate in luxury in those days. The commodes could be removed once and for all. Not everyone knows but when the agreement dissolving the union between Sweden and Norway was signed in Karlstad in 1905, the entire Norwegian delegation stayed at Stadshotellet.
Over the years, the hotel has undergone continuous renovation and modernisation although extreme care has been taken to ensure that quality remains the guiding principle in every aspect of the work. All the areas in the hotel have been carefully designed to be in keeping with the period and yet remain functional.
Many guests return to Stadshotellet Karlstad year after year. One of them was the poet Gustaf Fröding, who always sat at the same table in the dining room. It was there that he drank arrack punch and gathered the subject matter for many of his poems.
