    InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened its first hotel in Denmark with the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers. The 366-room Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers stands 85m tall with views over the Copenhagen skyline and the whole Oeresund region.

    The hotel has a bar and a Scandinavian restaurant as well as 3,500sqm of meeting room space made up of 12 flexible meeting rooms and a large ballroom that can accommodate up to 800 guests.

    The Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers is one of the world’s greenest hotels with EU Green Building and Green Key certification. The hotel is a member of the UN Global Compact. The hotel building is on a journey to becoming carbon neutral. Environmentally responsible technology is used throughout the hotel, including the first groundwater-based cooling and heating system in Denmark, which is expected to reduce the energy used in the hotel for heating and cooling by almost 90 per cent. The hotel has also installed low energy lighting and hand dryers. It also features the largest solar panel park in Northern Europe to be integrated into a building.

    All bedrooms are equipped with designer furniture, a flat screen TV, adjustable air conditioning, a mini bar and a safety deposit box.

    The hotel is operated by Copenhagen Hotel Management under a 20 year franchise agreement with IHG.
