Marriott International has signed an agreement with Danish-based company Core Hospitality to debut its Residence Inn brand in Denmark.

Residence Inn by Marriott Copenhagen, Nordhavn will be the group’s first property under the extended stay brand in the Nordics, and is expected to open in 2023.

The hotel will be owned by PFA Properties and will become part of the group’s Nordo development project in the Danish capital’s North Harbour area, located just five kilometres from the city centre.

The hotel will have 95 apartment-style suites designed by Henning Larsen Architects, all of which will feature an ocean or courtyard view, dedicated desk space and a fully functional kitchen. Guests will also have access to the property’s private lounge, fitness facilities and bike rental during their stay.

The property will be located within walking distance of most embassies in Copenhagen, and close to attractions such as the Sandkaj harbour bath. Guests will also have access to transport links to the international airport, while they can visit Oslo and Norway via the DFDS ferry.

Axel Steinbach, Director of International Hotel Development, Nordics, Marriott International, commented:

“The introduction of the Residence Inn by Marriott brand in the Nordics reinforces the demand we’re seeing for international hotel brands in the region and for the longer stay market. We’re delighted to work with Core Hospitality to bring this key project to Copenhagen.”

Per Denker Sorensen, CEO of Core Hospitality, added:

“We are thrilled to be working with Marriott International to sign the debut of Residence Inn by Marriott in the Nordics. Core Hospitality and PFA Properties have high ambitions for the hotel’s sustainability. We strive to achieve multiple eco-certificates, including the prestigious ‘DGNB Gold’ for a sustainable building and ‘Green Key’ for sustainable operations.”

Marriott recently opened its first Residence Inn property in Mexico and plans to debut the Residence Inn brand in Puerto Rico in November 2021.

Marriott has a portfolio of 860 Residence Inn properties in over 15 countries and territories.
