Nordic hotel market set to grow

A number of new properties are preparing to open
A number of new properties are scheduled to open in Scandinavia’s steadily evolving hotel market, Hospitality Net reports, with a range of new properties in the pre-planning, planning and pre-opening stages.
Sweden has the biggest number of projected hotels and resorts. The 3-star, 174-room Motel L Älvsjö Centrum will open in June with a modern design, part of a regeneration of the area close to the Stockholm International Fairs.
Much sooner than that, this month, Stockholm will see the opening of one of its largest hotels, the 4-star At Six, part of the Urban Escape masterplan. With 343 rooms and suites, it is a hybrid of a business and art hotel.
Scandic Group has new hotels underway in Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The 493-room, 4-star Downtown Camper in Stockholm is under construction, and an extension of the Scandic Hallandia in Halmstad is in the pre-planning stage.
Scandic also plans to open the 300-room, 4-star Hotel Marski in Helsinki in early 2019. In Copenhagen, the new-build 370-room Scandic Copenhagen Kødbyen will open in 2018, bringing conference and business facilities and restaurants to the city’s meatpacking district.
The Grand Hotel Stockholm is getting a revamp, and of the international brands looking north, Sheraton is also refurbishing its property in Stockholm.
