Villa Copenhagen
Achieving "Best New Hotel Openings" List
Villa Copenhagen Case Study

Set in Denmark’s century-old Central Post and Telegraph Head Office, adjacent to the famed Tivoli Gardens, Villa Copenhagen was the latest independent venture by Nordic Hotels & Resorts and set to be one of the most exciting openings in the Nordics – if not Europe – in 2020. The hotel celebrated a commitment to eco-sustainability through rooms made from sustainable materials and meaningful on-property practices, amenities, and services. The hotel sought a partner to support its launch among U.S. and U.K. audiences ahead of its grand opening on July 1, 2020, and make sure the hotel was considered for all relevant “best new hotel openings” awards and lists curated by influential travel authorities.
