World’s Largest Comfort Hotel Opens at Stockholm Arlanda Airport in Sweden

ROCKVILLE, Md. (Feb. 28, 2020) – Nordic Choice Hotels, the Scandinavian master franchisee of Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), has opened the doors to the Comfort Hotel Arlanda Airport in Stockholm, Sweden. The 503-room hotel is the largest in the Comfort brand system worldwide and is one of several new hotels that Nordic Choice expects to add to the Choice portfolio over the next three years, including the Comfort Hotel Copenhagen Airport later this year and Comfort Hotel Vantaa Airport in Helsinki in 2023.

“The newly opened Comfort Arlanda Airport is a great example of how the brand continues to break into major markets around the world,” said Megan Brumagim, vice president, brand management, design and compliance, Choice Hotels. “With convenient access to Stockholm, this hotel also serves as a gateway to the rest of Europe, making it an excellent option for business and leisure travelers.”

Located between terminals 4 and 5 at the Stockholm Arlanda Airport, guests of the new hotel will only have a two-minute walk to the international terminal. It’s also near one of Sweden's busiest train stations, providing easy access to everything the area offers, including picturesque greenery, islands, historic buildings, cobblestone streets, museums, shopping and restaurants. Additionally, the hotel features multiple places to dine, including Barception in the lobby, Anorak Bar on the twelfth floor and a rooftop bar with a mile-wide view where guests can watch planes take off and land.

The Comfort brand is designed to meet the needs of business and leisure travelers, and features several on-property amenities such as:  

  • Modern guestrooms with premium pillows, bedding and bath features.
  • Business centers, meeting space and open lobbies with room to work and socialize, including free Wi-Fi.
  • 24-hour fitness centers.
  • Complimentary hearty and healthy breakfast, featuring the brand's signature waffles, eggs, breakfast meats, pastries, yogurt, and fresh coffees and teas.
  • 100% smoke-free facilities.
