Scandic to open “city resort” in Stockholm

Resort to be “unique destination and meeting place for travellers of 2020”
Scandic says it will open a completely new type of hotel in Stockholm in early spring 2017 – an “international city resort”. The hotel will be “a playful and beautiful oasis in the middle of the vibrant concrete jungle of the city”.
The design of the hotel, which will involve a complete renovation of the existing hotel Sergel Plaza, is a long-term collaboration between Scandic Hotels and the property’s owner, Stena Fastigheter.
The city resort will have about 420 hotel rooms and 2,300 square metres of restaurant and conference facilities and will be a “unique destination and meeting place for travellers of 2020”. The hotel, which has been under the Scandic brand since 2007 through a franchise agreement between Hilton and Scandic, will undergo renovation starting in 2016.
“Our vision is to create a new kind of city hotel with an excellent location. It will be a hotel for the savvy, cosmopolitan visitor of 2020, who has high standards and seeks new experiences, and who is happy to combine work and pleasure,” said Frank Fiskers, Scandic Hotels’ president and chief executive.
Nils Pers, CEO of Stena Fastigheter Stockholm, added: “The Brunkebergstorg area has been under development for some time and it is very significant for the development of downtown Stockholm. For this reason, we are very happy that we now have the opportunity together with Scandic to develop Sergel Plaza into one of Stockholm’s most attractive meeting places with a hotel, restaurant and shops all in the same building.”
