Swede heads luxury hotel in Copenhagen

A new luxury property, the Nobis Hotel Copenhagen, has a Swedish general manager with a broad range of experience.

Swedish hospitality executive Cecilia Mauritzson has become the general manager of one of Copenhagen’s newest high-end hotels, which opened last autumn with 77 rooms and suites.

With broad experience in the hotel industry, she goes to her new job at the Nobis Hotel Copenhagen following previous top positions at a number of hotels in the Danish capital.

Located close to Tivoli, the Nobis has six room types, namely Superior, Superior Loft, Deluxe, Junior Suite, two Penthouse Suites and a Nobis Suite. It is the first time that the Stockholm-based Nobis Hospitality Group has opened a property outside Sweden.

Mauritzson holds a Master’s degree in service management from Lund University and arrives at the Nobis Hotel Copenhagen from the Norway-based group First Hotels.

There she was general manager of the First Hotel Mayfair and, most recently, the First Hotel Twentyseven, both in Copenhagen.

She has also been at Nordic Choice Hotels, including six years as general manager of the Clarion Collection Hotel Neptun, now known as the Skt. Annæ and belonging to the Hildebrandt family.

“I am passionate about service and have steadily worked in the hotel industry for about 20 years,” says Cecilia Mauritzson in a Nobis Hotels press release.

“I have worked up from waitress and receptionist, which has provided experience that makes me understand all parts of a hotel. I’m a devoted hotelier with big visions and never giving up.”

City of luxury
The Nobis Hotel Copenhagen is located in a historical building that is formerly home to Denmark’s oldest institute of musical education, the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music.

Mauritzson says of the hotel, “I want to create an elegant destination for travellers and for the people of Copenhagen.”

The Danish capital has seen a number of high-end hotels open over the last year. Also opening last autumn was the Hotel Sanders with 54 rooms and suites, and more recently Brøchner Hotels opened its first 5-star hotel in Copenhagen, Herman K, with 31 rooms and suites. Meanwhile, Tivoli expanded its own luxury hotel, Nimb, with 21 more rooms to make a total of 38.
