Many hotels in Tallinn took the opportunity last year to begin renovating and rebranding. Now these hotels are opening their doors again, featuring fresh designs and new features: the legendary Palace hotel, now named Palace Hotel Tallinn, a member of Radisson Individuals, has re-opened its doors after a refurbishment. The nearly a century old building features 79 rooms, including a large presidential suite with a private sauna and meeting room. The hotel also has a fitness and relaxation centre with an indoor pool and spa. The hotel continues to house the restaurant Konrad, which offers both Estonian and international flavors. The Tallink City Hotel  has got a completely new interior design and a thorough overhaul. After renovations, the hotel features 324 rooms and suites in four categories: double rooms, family rooms, deluxe rooms and sauna suites. The hotel also has a new restaurant City Grill House, which is located on two floors and has space for 228 guests. The 258-room Nordic Hotel Forum has gone through extensive renovations. All hotel rooms and public areas have been refurbished, the Leisure Center with indoor pool, sauna and gym has been extended and the hotel now features two restaurants.
