Bech-Bruun advises on strategic hotel partnership with Copenhagen Airport
Nordic Choice/Strawberry Fields, both groups owned by Petter Anker Stordalen, has signed an agreement with Copenhagen Airport regarding a strategic hotel partnership in the airport.
The purpose of the strategic partnership is to provide a significant upgrade of the hotel capacity in Copenhagen Airport and provide the airport with new conference facilities. This will increase the quality of the airport’s services to travelers, but will also make the airport a conference destination in its own right.
With effect from 1 April 2017 Nordic Choice Hotels will take over operations at the current Hilton Hotel comprising 382 rooms. As part of the takeover the hotel will receive an extensive upgrade and change its name to Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport.
The partnership further includes the construction of a large new airport hotel, Comfort Copenhagen Airport Hotel, offering 500 rooms and a new conference centre covering 3,000 sq. m. Both the new hotel and the conference centre are scheduled to open in 2020.
Bech-Bruun advised the Nordic Choice/Strawberry Fields groups in connection with the conclusion of the agreements, overall implying investments of DKK 800m.
