Copenhagen quayside setting for new Hilton

The new renovation project will transform a former bank into an upscale hotel.

A new hotel project has secured the return of the US hotel giant Hilton to Copenhagen, turning a former Nordea bank on the Copenhagen waterfront into a new hotel scheduled for opening in 2020.

The future upscale hotel, with the provisional name Hilton Copenhagen City, is expected to become a new landmark on the Danish capital’s harbour front.

Stretching to a total area of 29,000 square metres, the property will accommodate around 400 rooms as well as meeting and conference facilities, an executive lounge, fitness centre, parking, a bar and two restaurants, one of which will be on the quayside.

The building will open up to both the harbour area and the neighbouring areas of Torvegade and Knippelsbro, “in line with and with great respect for the city’s architectural and sustainable profile”, the real estate companies behind the project say.

The conversion into the Hilton Copenhagen City is expected to start as soon as a new plan for the district is available, and if the process goes according to expectations it is likely to open its doors just over two years from now.

“Beautiful landmark”
The Danish hotel, conference, exhibition and hospitality provider BC Hospitality Group is teaming up with ATP Real Estate for the project, together with the internationally acclaimed Henning Larsen Architects.

Hilton Copenhagen City will become “a beautiful new landmark on the Copenhagen waterfront”, according to BC Hospitality Group, which also operates hotels belonging to three other international brands in the city, the 5-star Copenhagen Marriott and the 4-star AC Hotel Bella Sky Copenhagen and Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers.
