Airport hotel gets major upgrade, new name

Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport to open on April 1
The Hilton hotel at Copenhagen Airport is to be upgraded at a cost of DKK 70 million (€9.4 million) and, from April 1, to be renamed the Clarion.
The soon-to-be Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport is currently undergoing an extensive upgrade of its rooms, restaurant, conference facilities and lobby.
The hotel’s owner, Copenhagen Airports A/S, has entered into a partnership with Nordic Choice Hotels, which will take over the operation of the hotel as part of its high-end Clarion brand.
“The hotel is important for many of our travellers,” says Thomas Woldbye, the airport’s CEO. “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 travellers. Nordic Choice Hotels can deliver that, and I’m certain we’ve found the right partner.”
Woldbye also thanked Hilton for its collaboration since the hotel opened in 2001.
Nordic Choice operates 190 hotels in the Nordic and Baltic regions, of which 76 are Clarion hotels. At the new airport hotel it will introduce its restaurant concept Kitchen & Table By Marcus Samuelsson, Samuelsson being a chef with restaurants around the world including in New York. He is famous for being a favourite chef of former US President Barack Obama.
“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,” says Petter A Stordalen, Nordic Choice Hotels’ owner.
