InterContinental Hotels Group opens its first hotel in Denmark


InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened its first hotel in Denmark with the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers.



The 366-room Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers stands 85 metres tall with stunning views over the Copenhagen skyline and the whole Oeresund region. The hotel is located minutes away from Copenhagen International Airport and a stone's throw from the motorway, underground and overland train stations providing easy access to attractions such as Tivoli, the Royal Castle and Nyhavn. This makes the hotel ideal for business and leisure travellers alike.


The hotel has a bar and a Scandinavian restaurant as well as 3,500 square metres of meeting room space made up of 12 flexible meeting rooms and a large ballroom that can accommodate up to 800 guests.


The Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers is one of the world's greenest hotels with EU Green Building and Green Key certification. The hotel is a member of the UN Global Compact. The hotel building is on a journey to becoming carbon neutral. Environmentally responsible technology is used throughout the hotel, including:


  • The first groundwater-based cooling and heating system in Denmark, expected to reduce the energy used in the hotel for heating and cooling by almost 90%
  • Low energy lighting and hand dryers
  • The largest solar panel park in Northern Europe to be integrated into a building, covering all the hotel's sunny facades


All bedrooms are equipped with designer furniture, a flat screen TV, adjustable air conditioning, a mini bar and a safety deposit box.


The hotel is operated by Copenhagen Hotel Management under a 20 year franchise agreement with IHG.


Allan L. Agerholm, CEO and co-owner of Copenhagen Hotel Management said: "Our location is known as the crossroads of Scandinavia because it's the access point for Denmark, Sweden and other Nordic countries making it a great destination for domestic and international business travellers. Crowne Plaza hotels are designed for guests who enjoy business travel and want to make the most of their stay and we felt that Copenhagen needed a hotel like this."


Kirk Kinsell, president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, IHG, said: "We have more than 350 Crowne Plaza hotels in nearly 50 countries around the world so we're excited to bring Crowne Plaza to Denmark for the first time. Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers will offer a comfortable, stylish and accessible base for guests travelling on business or on a holiday or short break."
