Marriott Opens First Hotels in Sweden

Marriott StockholmThis week, Marriott International, Inc. will see grand openings for its first two hotels in Sweden: the Courtyard Stockholm Kungsholmen and the Renaissance Malmo.

Located in Sweden's capital city, the 278-room Courtyard Stockholm Kungsholmen is the largest Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Europe. Guestrooms have panoramic windows with views over the lake Malaren and the Ralambshovs Park. Located in the Kungsholmen neighborhood, the hotel is within walking distance of the city center and next door to one of the city's main metro stations.

Celebrating its grand opening on June 18, the 128-room Renaissance Malmo Hotel is a five-minute walk to the Malmo Central Station (which offers a short 30 minute train ride to Copenhagen International Airport, Denmark).

The Renaissance Malmo's Rosen Bar & Dining offers a new spin on local cuisine, blending contemporary Swedish cuisine with Spanish flavors. The menu is based on seasonal and local ingredients.

Marriott opened its first hotel in Scandinavia, the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel, in 2001, and the property recently completed a renovation of its lobby space. The Copenhagen Marriott also got a new restaurant, Mid Town Grill, a New York-style steakhouse and will complete a total renovation of its 401 guest rooms next year.
