Deal agreed for US$10m Clarion Hotel at Copenhagen Airport

Hospitality firm Nordic Choice Hotels has unveiled its plans to transform the existing Hilton hotel at Copenhagen Airport in Denmark at a cost of approximately Dkr70m (US$10.2m).

Nordic Choice will rename the facility the Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport and will undertake a full refurbishment of the rooms, conference facilities and lobby, as well as introducing a new Kitchen & Table restaurant concept by renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson. Nordic Choice will take over operations from April 1, 2017.

Thomas Woldbye, CEO of Copenhagen Airports, the airport operator and hotel owner, said, “The hotel is important for many of our travelers. It’s therefore vital for us that it is even more reflective of the Nordic feel and high quality that we want to offer those guests. Nordic Choice Hotels can deliver that, and I’m certain we’ve found the right partner.

“We’ve enjoyed an excellent collaboration with Hilton, which has operated the hotel professionally and with a high standard, and we’re delighted that the skilled employees will be able to continue under the new Clarion brand.”

Petter A Stordalen, owner of Nordic Choice Hotels, said, “Clarion Hotel is our high-end chain with a strong full-service concept, and it sets a high standard for design, interiors, art, food and drink. It’s our ambition that this hotel should be reborn as an even bigger success. Clarion Hotel Arlanda Airport has been crowned Sweden’s best business hotel and Europe’s most luxurious airport hotel, and experiences from there will benefit the hotel at Copenhagen Airport.”
