Marriott is to open its first hotel in Finland under a franchise agreement with Scandinavian Hospitality Management Espoo OY. The hotel will be owned by Kiinteisto OY Kuninkaansatama, a joint venture between Ultivista OY and BMZ-Invest OY.

The 272-room Helsinki Marriott Hotel,  scheduled to open in early 2013, will be located in the Westend district of Espoo, one of the most affluent districts of the greater Helsinki area.

The 18-story hotel will boast views of Helsinki and a unique waterfront location. The hotel will be a ten minute drive from Helsinkis city center and a short distance from Helsinkis Vantaa Airport. In addition, the hotel will sit within one kilometer of the commercial districts of Tapiola and Keilaniemi, which accommodate the headquarter offices of many Finnish companies.

We see strong development opportunities in the Nordic countries and are excited to see our expansion continue in to Finland, said Amy McPherson, president and managing director of Marriott International in Europe. The region has always been known for warm hospitality and great design. We look forward to a continued partnership with Scandinavian Hospitality Management and know this hotel will serve the market well.

The Helsinki Marriott Hotel will boast over 10,500 square feet of meeting space, an executive lounge and business center.

For recreation and relaxation, the hotel will feature a state-of-the art health club with indoor pool.
