Hotels in Copenhagen, Denmark Enjoy a Wave of Fun Thanks to a New Pier

October 5, 2013 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Harbors make picturesque environments with sunlight glinting off the water and vistas ending where the sea and sky melt together. But hotels that are enviably perched in places like these should get more out of such prime real estate than just views.

And the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel is a perfect example of how a brand-new pier can revitalize a quiet but scenic harborside location.

Guests of this hotel near Tivoli Gardens have long appreciated its direct access to city sights. Now they can also experience the area’s maritime legacy. The Wave was built on the Marriott’s pier, which means hotel guests have especially easy access to its attractions.

This hotel in downtown Copenhagen has plenty to recommend it outside of the new pier. Featuring 402 elegantly contemporary guestrooms, a fitness center with massage facilities, 12,518 square feet of meeting space and two Copenhagen restaurants that tempt locals and visitors alike, the property has long enjoyed a reputation for excellence. The arrival of the aptly named pier, Bølgen (“The Wave”), which the hotel welcomed on August 30, 2013, promises only to enhance its appeal.

Guests of this hotel near Tivoli Gardens have long appreciated its direct access to city sights. Now they can also experience the area’s maritime legacy. (The Wave was built on the Marriott’s pier, which means hotel guests have especially easy access to its attractions.) The 4,000 square meter, multi-level promenade crafted from Northern European oak stretches and curves along the harbor in a wavelike motion that lends it its name.

But the design is only the beginning. Its function is to connect people with the water, something it does via water taxis, harbor buses and kayaks, and complement the numerous activities happening on the other side of the harbor. Guests of these Copenhagen accommodations can rent kayaks with the concierge, or they can take a shuttle boat across the harbor instead. There, visitors can satisfy their nautical cravings in one of four dedicated pools for exercise, diving and children. Canal tours are also available with a pickup point right in front of the hotel. And, of course, the pier itself is perfect for a quiet stroll, an intimate conversation or an informal meeting.

The hotel’s own Pier 5 Bar & Lounge complements The Wave’s relaxed atmosphere. It’s the perfect place to stop for a casual, tasty lunch, especially since its Waterfront Terrace means guests don’t have to interrupt their sunny, seaside experience.
