Scandic Hotels to open Stavanger property

Scandic Hotels, the largest hotel company in the Nordics, has signed a new hotel in the centre of Stavanger in Norway.

With 350 rooms and vast conference facilities, Scandic Stavanger Congress will be Scandic Hotels’ seventh property in Norway and its largest to date.
 
It will have 350 rooms and conference facilities with a roof-top terrace with stunning views over the Stavanger harbour. In addition to a two-floor restaurant, a bar and a fitness centre, the hotel will have a total of 15 meeting rooms - the largest being 1,000 sqm.   

Frank Fiskers, president and chief executive of Scandic said: "As the market leader, it is natural for us to lead the development of major destinations. We are proactive and will establish new hotels in attractive destinations where we see strong demand. This contributes to Scandic’s growth and strengthens our position as the leading Nordic hotel company."  

The property is scheduled to open in 2016.
