Scandic Hotels, the largest hotel operator in the Nordics, has signed a lease agreement with property owner ATP to take over the operation of one of Copenhagen’s most popular hotels and conference centers – the existing Radisson Blu Falconer – from October 1, 2018. The hotel is strategically located in the district of Frederiksberg in central Copenhagen and among other services offers a conference center that accommodates events for up to 3,000 people. In connection with the takeover, the hotel will change name to Scandic Falconer.
– Copenhagen is among the world’s most popular conference destinations. With our new Scandic Falconer, we are further strengthening our offering in the Danish hotel and conference market, says Frank Fiskers, President & CEO of Scandic Hotels Group.
– Through the extensive renovation and extension, the hotel will reach its full potential and in combination with our popular and strong customer concept, our vision is to create an exciting new conference hotel, says Jens Mathiesen, Country Managing Director for Scandic in Denmark.
As of early 2017, the hotel will be closed to undergo a complete renovation and the extension of approximately 140 rooms as well as extensive meeting and event facilities. The development will be conducted by Scandic Hotels and the ATP in partnership.
