Scandic is expanding – acquires the Hilton Hotel in Malmö

Scandic has signed an agreement to take over the flagship Triangeln Hotel in Malmö from Hilton. The hotel will undergo a total renovation during 2013, and guests will easily recognise Scandic’s trademark approach – bedrooms, meeting rooms, and public areas, with a clear focus on accessibility and sustainability. The Scandic Triangeln strengthens Scandic’s presence in the expanding Öresund region, which includes Malmö and Copenhagen.Scandic currently has four hotels in Malmö: Scandic S:t Jörgen, Scandic Kramer, Scandic Segevång and Scandic Malmö City. In January, the portfolio will expand with the addition of the Scandic Triangeln, a classic landmark and flagship in the centre of the city. In addition to the 216 spacious rooms including a Presidential Suite, the hotel offers a wide choice of meeting and service facilities.

”The location is perfect – the proximity of communications links, the city centre and excellent shopping will attract all types of guest”, says Anders Ehrling, CEO of Scandic. “The addition of a flagship hotel to our four existing hotels in Malmö demonstrates our commitment to expanding in the Öresund region, Scandinavia’s largest metropolitan area, with a population of 2.3 million”.

In partnership with the property owner Vasakronan, Scandic will carry out a full renovation of the hotel, starting in 2013. The rooms and public spaces will be renovated carefully, with the emphasis on accessibility and sustainability. Guided by Accessibility Ambassador Magnus Berglund, Scandic is totally committed to ensuring that everyone feels welcome, whether or not they have a disability.

Hilton will leave the hotel on 31 December 2012, 1stof January is the date Scandic will take over the operation and welcome new guests.
