Copenhagen Hotels: Scandic Copenhagen

Editor’s Choice: Copenhagen’s ‘Greenest’ Hotel

The Facts: Like all properties in the Scandic chain, Scandic Copenhagen takes its corporate responsibility seriously. For example, the Scandic chain used to transport 4 million bottles of water annually to its hotels. That was unsustainable, management felt, which is why the chain now invests in the best water there is — H2O from its own tap. In guest rooms, where everything is 97 percent recyclable, you’ll find attractive hand-blown glass water bottles. Either fill from your sink or from water dispensers that serve still or sparkling. Your cost: $0. You’ll also find fair-trade coffee, and mostly organic foods in the excellent Napa restaurant. The Scandic chain recently entered a partnership with renowned chef Jamie Oliver to provide healthy, nutritious cuisine for guests.

Cozy Digs: The largest hotel in Denmark’s Scandic chain, Scandic Copenhagen originally opened as a Sheraton in the 1970s. Under Scandic management, all 486 rooms have been, or are being, renovated. Rooms provide great views over the city or over the lake.

Final Word: Scandic hotels do not aspire to be five-star properties. Rather, the chain positions itself as providing “smart value” in a hotel that has a smart attitude toward the environment. If you’re concerned about your carbon footprint, you can rest easy at Scandic Copenhagen.
