Choice Hotels International, Inc. announced the opening of the largest hotel in its portfolio – the Clarion Hotel The Hub in Oslo, Norway. The hotel offers 810 rooms, unique design, two bars, and a premium rooftop restaurant with stunning views in the heart of Norway’s capital city.
“Clarion Hotel The Hub is a destination for those seeking creativity, inspiration, and enriching experiences in the center of Oslo. This is the largest hotel in the city, but it still curates a warm atmosphere, with people who are passionate about diversity, sustainability and going the extra mile for guests,” said the hotel’s General Manager Andre Schreiner.
The Clarion Hotel The Hub is one of 20 Clarion hotels open in Scandinavia, all of which are owned by Nordic Choice, Choice’s Master Partner in the Scandinavian region who develops, markets and supports Choice’s brands in their territories. They currently own, manage or franchise more than 180 properties representing more than 30,000 rooms. Their portfolio consists of Comfort, Quality, Clarion and Ascend Hotel Collection-branded hotels, and the company has plans to open several other hotels under the Choice Hotels umbrella throughout the region in the next year.
“Our focus has always been forging long-term relationships with high-quality developers and operators to grow our international footprint through proven brands,” said Mark Pearce, senior vice president, international division, Choice Hotels. “We’ve been fortunate to work closely with Nordic Choice for many years to bring several outstanding hotels to fruition, and we know the Clarion Hotel The Hub – a true jewel in our family of Choice Hotels – is yet another outstanding addition to the Scandinavian market.”
