Just a few minutes by foot from Karl Johansgate (Oslo's main pedestrian drag), this Clarion Collection hotel puts a theatrical spin on your stay: Hotel Folketeateret shares a connecting atrium with the Oslo folk theater of the same name. The 160 rooms, spread between seven floors, have a moody boudoir appeal, with beds clad in crocodile-skin-patterned spreads, jewel-tone throw pillows, and cove lighting under the bed and on the walls that makes for a romantic glow. Some rooms have wooden floors, while others are carpeted, so if either is important to you, be sure to specify when you book. The signature suites are particularly decadent, and several are two-level affairs with meeting spaces or, in the case of the bridal suite, an enormous bathroom furnished in all white with a Jacuzzi tub. A huge gym with boxing balls, treadmills with TVs, and Techno Gym equipment is in the basement. Among the hotel's others perks are free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea with homemade pastries, and a light evening meal served in the comfortable lounge area that also has access to an outdoor rooftop terrace—the perfect place to lounge in the summer.—Terry Ward
