Radisson Blu Hotel Tallinn, Tallinn

Concierge.com's insider take:
Adhering to the philosophy that bigger is better, this glass monolith is one of Tallinn's tallest buildings, and houses 280 guest rooms. Yes, it's a typical chain hotel that caters mostly to business travelers, but don't write it off if you're vacationing. The location, a ten-minute walk from Old Town, means that at night, you're spared the noise of stag parties roaming the cobbled streets in search of cheap beer. Rooms are done up in either a Scandinavian, Oriental, Italian, or maritime theme; request an even-numbered room for views of Old Town. Wi-Fi is free, but for turndown service, a bathrobe, access to the fitness center, and breakfast in bed, you'll have to book a business class room (about $40 more than the standard rate). If you're staying elsewhere, come for the view and a drink at Lounge 24, the rooftop bar.
