Since its opening in 2001, the Hilton Copenhagen Airport has been dedicated to excellence and the success of this mission has been greatly acknowledged by local as well as international guests. In this hotel you are welcomed to luxury rooms, upscale meeting facilities, an exclusive Asian-inspired spa, top-floor Executive Lounge and an un-paralleled service-level; features which have contributed in making the Hilton Copenhagen Airport one of the most award-winning and renowned hotels in Copenhagen.

The hotel is an ideal place for any type of visit. Guests are pleasantly surprised by the unique and very convenient location of the hotel. It is also the only hotel situated right next to Copenhagen Airport – a central hub in the Nordic region – and is directly connected to the Terminal 3 via a covered walkway. Furthermore, the city centre is just 12 minutes by frequent train or Metro services. The city of Malmoe is right on the other side of the impressive Oresund Bridge and it takes only ten minutes to reach major congress facilities at the Bella Centre.

A transformational design
Entering the premises, you are met by a stylish, contemporary Scandinavian ambiance; the DNA of the interior design of the hotel. This is evident in all areas: In the lobby, where the astounding pieces of  artwork adornng the walls are made by renowned Danish artists from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, in the guest Lounge with the cosy fireplace, and of course in all 382 guest rooms.

This year, however, the hotel is embarking on a new and innovative project – the transformation of the guest room design. This new initiative, with the slogan ‘Room for the new’, is part of the continuous development of the hotel. And it is not just about a new look – it is an ambition.

Claus Steiner, General Manager, Hilton Copenhagen Airport, explained: “We have chosen to call the new venture ‘Room for the new’ to illustrate that it is the beginning of a new stage in the hotel’s 10-year history. We are passionate about delivering exceptional guest experiences, and with ‘Room for the new’, we are developing the physical environment of the hotel, so that it meets our guests’ personal requirements in the future.” Room for the new is designed to give customers a complete experience during their visit, so they can concentrate on the essentials and simply enjoy the pleasant environment.

To travel is to live…
The new room design has now been launched on the 9th to the 12th floor, including all Executive and Deluxe Rooms and has already been highly appraised by the guests, who are excited about the new design. The new rooms are spacious – from 33sq m for Deluxe Rooms to 45sq m for Executive Plus Rooms, and 66sq m for the new Executive Suites offering the ideal base for both business and family stays.

Interior designer Marianne Fryland, who was also part of the original design team when the hotel opened, has created a welcoming decor in warm colours which upholds the Danish expression but also added the international touch. The masterpiece of the room is the clean, white bed with the impressive head-board. Inspired by the Danish fairy tale writer, poet and gifted artist, Hans Christian Andersen, whose famous motto was “to travel is to live”, the head-board illustrates one of Andersen’s amazing paper cuttings.

All Executive and Deluxe rooms are fitted with new designer furniture and in all rooms throughout the hotel you will find huge soundproofed floor-to-ceiling windows offer natural daylight and great views of the airport, the city or the sea.

On the 12th floor is the popular and stylish Executive Lounge – an area exclusively for guests staying in Executive rooms, providing extra comfort and service such as complimentary breakfasts and evening drinks, snacks and canapés. It aims to provide a home away from home; a place to sit back in front of the open fireplace with an international newspaper and relax from the day. A dedicated Executive Floor Manager is present all day to assist guests.

When visiting, do not miss out on restaurants ‘Horizon All Day’ and ‘Hamlet Nordic Dining’, which both cater to delicious culinary experiences. Horizon All Day is the informal restaurant, providing a lavish breakfast buffet as well as a popular weekend ‘taste of Europe’ dinner buffet and the best Sunday brunch in town. While the architectural beauty, Hamlet, offers Nordic dining in a setting that’s perfect for more formal business dinners as well as romantic evenings.

For the ultimate luxury experience, indulge in a visit to the Ni’mat Spa. This Asian inspired spa offers a wide range of relaxing massages and exclusive treatments. Take a quiet moment in the aroma steam bath accompanied by the ‘Ice Buddha’, float in the heated salt-water pool, or powernap in the Golden Egg – a unique universe designed to de-stress in less than 15 minutes. Ni’mat Spa also offers special packages like the ‘Refresh Yourself’ – a break away from the daily pace for the busy business traveller.

Flexible meetings
Hilton Copenhagen Airport is offering the global meeting concept Hilton Meetings and a total of 29 modern meeting rooms to suit any occasion. All are with natural daylight, 14 of these rooms, alongside an additional Business Centre, are  conveniently located at Terminal 3 of Copenhagen Airport. During the summer, a similar ‘Room for the new’ modernisation of the Business Centre and all Hilton Meetings rooms on the second floor of the hotel will be taking place turning the meeting facilities into a state- of-the-art venue for business people.

Flexibility and service are key values at this Hilton. The Hilton Meetings Team, led by the Hilton Meetings Manager, in the Business Centre is at the visitors’ disposal to ensure all those important details are in place to guarantee a successful meeting.

For large events the elegant Ellehammer Ballroom, located on the hotel’s ground floor, accommodates up to 500 people and also offers a large foyer suitable for coffee breaks. A unique feature of the ballroom is the direct access from the outside through three-metre wide flexible doors, making the room ideal for events such as car launches.

Valued guests
Hospitality is at the core of the Hilton Copenhagen Airport and all guests are welcome to join and benefit from Hilton HHonors – the global rewards programme. It is a fantastic option for business travellers offering more value to each stay in a Hilton hotel. Members visiting the hotel in Copenhagen are rewarded for their loyalty by receiving a personalised service and special privileges.

Giving back to the community
For many years, the hotel has worked determinedly to safeguard the environment. General Manager Claus Steiner has led the hotel to its first international certification with the eco-label the ‘Green Key.’ Even the Hilton Meetings concept now has a green approach, with meeting collateral reduced and made recyclable.

But the Hilton Copenhagen Airport is not all about business. The hotel and team members also engage in the local community and in a great number of charity activities. In 2011, the hotel initiated several campaigns in the name of the ‘Hilton in the Community Foundation’, Hilton’s global charity organisation. These prestigious charity events hosted by the hotel raised more than £55,000 for local organisations supporting children in need.

The strong enthusiasm of the team towards the green commitment and charity work continues in 2012 with new, exciting projects.
