Scandic to open conference hotel in Copenhagen

Nordic operator to take over Radisson Blu Falconer
Nordic hotel operator Scandic Hotels has signed a lease agreement to take over the operations of one of Copenhagen’s best-known hotels and conference centres, the Radisson Blu Falconer, from 1 October 2018.
The property, which will change its name to Scandic Falconer, is located in the district of Frederiksberg and its conference centre accommodates events for up to 3,000 people.
The hotel will close from the start of 2017 to undergo a complete renovation and the extension of around 140 rooms to make a total of 300. Scandic signed the agreement with property owner ATP (Arbejdsmakedets Tillægspension). The transaction is subject to a revised plan for the area as well as building permits.
“Copenhagen is among the world’s most popular conference destinations,” said Frank Fiskers, president and chief executive of Scandic Hotels Group. “With our new Scandic Falconer we are further strengthening our offering in the Danish hotel and conference market.”
