Copenhagen Denmark Accor Hotel
Space Copenhagen has brought an original feature to the Danish capital, where Arne Jacobsen's legendary Royal Hotel is about to be completed: furniture. Swedish property investor Balder has spent $116 million to buy the former Royal Palace Hotel in the heart of the city's central business district. Founded in 2005 by the son of architect and co-founder Peter, the studio has sought to modernise the interior to celebrate the existing space. Each room is designed to be warm and cosy, with upholstered bed furniture, including the Fly sofa by Fly SOfa, a tradition complemented by Jacobson's original pieces, as well as a collection of original furniture from his own collection.
CitizenM portfolio, which aims to have at least 10,000 square meters of office space in Scandinavia by 2020. The coworking space was founded by the company's co-founder and CEO, Peter Jacobson, and includes a range of high-quality furniture that is oriented towards Scandinavia.
It will be very interesting to keep an eye on how many international chains decide to enter the challenging hotel market. Tracking the development of hotels in Scandinavia over the next few years will help you define your own strategy and growth plans.

The Moxy Copenhagen Sydhavnen is a new hotel that cost just $113 a night when I checked in at the beginning of May, while Design Hotels (60,000 points) are among the most expensive options. The Best Western Hotel is valued at just over $200 and offers great views of Copenhagen's historic buildings, as well as the Royal Palace and Tivoli Gardens.
Some Nordic Choice hotels are located in the former Hilton Copenhagen Airport, which was recently renamed to be directly connected to the airport. The IHG Rewards Club has a good selection of hotels in the city as well as a number of other options, and Radisson Rewards has had great success with its Blue Cross and Blue Shield members.
Balders will sign a long-term lease agreement with Ligula Hospitality Group for the operation of four hotels. Upcoming hotels include a new 5,000-room hotel with 1,500 rooms and plans by budget brand Cabinn to add 1,250 rooms on site, which are due to open in 2019.
The hotel is the first Hyatt - centric in the UK and will be the focal point, and the brand is focused on embracing the local area and lifestyle. Hilton is following a similar pattern as it seeks to expand the number of hotels it has in Europe, particularly in London. The hospitality giant wants to make Wojo the largest "coworking" brand in Europe, with many spaces within its hotels.
Much of the city is located on the east coast of Denmark and is characterized by bridges and riverbanks through which the Amager River flows. The city is in the process of increasing its hotel capacity from 18,000 rooms in 2017 to 24,000 rooms, which will close in 2021. Copenhagen, which costs 20,000 points per night for a stay, is currently the second most expensive city in Europe after London.
I have a free credit card for the night that can be used for a hotel room at the Ritz - Carlton Hotel in Rome, Italy. Comparing the value of hotel points in a hotel in Rome shows how the cost of buying points is applied to how we rate, whether we spend points on a hotel - rewarded nights in a city like Rome in Italy and, if so, in which hotels.
The results confirm that international hotel chains are not well represented in Copenhagen or Scandinavia. Granted, there are some international brands, such as the Radisson Blu Park Inn and Radisson Branding, that have a strong presence. Arp Hansen, for example, has properties ranging from upscale Phoenix Copenhagen to budget Wakeup Copenhagen.
In 2012, the integration of Rezidor Hotel Group into Radisson Hospitality Inc., a company commonly known as Carlson Rezidsor hotel Group, began. The entire hotel group has received a new name, the "Radisson Branding" brand, and a brand franchising agreement with the US hotel chain. All brands in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East will eventually be franchised, while the entire company and its parent company Carlson Hotel Inc. will become Radissonshospitality, Inc.
The publicly traded company will operate the hotel chain under the brand name Radissons Hospitality, Inc. with offices in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Jersey and Washington, DC.
The franchisor, which is based in Paris, had six hotels in Denmark in the early 2000s, but withdrew from the country in 2005. Since then Carlson Hotels has integrated the two hotel groups and in 2010 transformed them into the Rezidor Hotel Group, which has increased the number of hotel rooms in its portfolio by 50.1% to 23. In 2016, Rezidsons Hospitality, Inc., the parent company of Radissons Hotel Company, which owns the Copenhagen Accor hotel chain among other hotels, was sold to the Chinese conglomerate HNA Group.
