Scandic Opens More Hotels in Norway

News Scandic Hotels, the largest hospitality company in the Nordic countries, announced the start of a long-term partnership with Utstillingsplassen Eiendeom A/S, Norway. Together the companies will rebrand and open two Scandic hotels – the Ambassadeur Hotel and the Globus Hotel in Drammen. Both the properties will start operating under the new name in the beginning of next year.

The hotels are located on Strømsø square only 50m away from the train station of Drammen. The hotels are both independently owned properties, and Scandic will act as a managing company. The Ambassadeur Hotel is located in a historic building constructed in the late 1800s, it’s a well-known place in the city that attracts both locals and tourists. During the renovation, both the buildings will be integrated into one bigger hotel. After renovation and rebranding, the hotel will have almost 300 guestrooms, 13 conference rooms, dining facilities and a bar. The opening of such a hotel will allow to more than double the guestroom capacity of Scandic in Drammen.
