The well-known Falconer Center in Copenhagen consists of a hotel and a conference complex. It has a solid reputation and is the natural choice for outstanding conferences, concerts and shows.
It’s a true landmark in the Danish capital city, located in one of the most prestigious locations for the most important events.
A new start
The contract with the present operator of the hotel and the conference operation expires at the end of this year. So, it was a natural step for ATP, who is the landlord, to start a process to investigate alternatives for further development of the facilities. That process was recently finished and the choice fell on Scandic.
“I’m very happy to say that from late summer 2018, we are taking over operations of this landmark and our dedication is to safeguard continued and accelerating success”, says Jens Mathiesen, who is heading Scandic’s Danish operations.
“The starting point of the take-over is a 1.5 year remake of the hotel. The facilities are to be totally renovated to become more inviting and inspirational. A new lobby will be designed, the restaurant will be completely new as well as the bar. We want future visitors to feel the original spirit, but at the same time experience that the venue is boosted by a new dimension. An important feature is that the capacity of the hotel will be doubled to around 300 rooms through an extension of the premises. This will make the establishment even more attractive for both corporate and leisure guests.”
A real showcase
“The combination of the largest hotel indoor area in Denmark together with a modern, welcoming hotel designed and operated by Scandic, will provide a fantastic meeting place for companies, entertainment audiences and tourists alike right in the middle of Copenhagen. We will restore the place to its original status and I really look forward to its grand opening in the autumn of 2018. I hope we will be able to offer an outstanding show then,” says Jens Mathiesen.
“The scope of the Scandic Falconer project underlines Scandic’s capacity and position as the leading, largest and most innovative hotel operator in the Nordics. It manifests our company’s ambition to always push the limits when it comes to creative hotel management. To us, the show goes on and on“, concludes Jens Mathiesen.
