The hotel originally opened in 1973 and was owned by Scandinavian Airlines, as was the entire Radisson brand back then. This hotel acted mainly as an airport hotel along with the more designer Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in the city centre. The hotel has 26 floors, with all the shared areas on the ground floor and rooms in the rest. The hotel has a strong Art-Deco influence that is most obvious in the lobby. Complete with traditional marble floors, columns and abstract shapes and paintings, the hotel is far from the contemporary Danish design you may be looking for. The lobby bar, built on a varnished wooden dais is open throughout the day and serves snacks and beverages. A major advantage here at the hotel, is its range of restaurants. Whereas most hotels in the city tend to have one main restaurant, here you will find a branch of the renowned Thai, Blue Elephant, a Japanese restaurant, Kyoto, the Dining Room, as well as Mamas and Papas the hotel's main restaurant.
The hotel adjoins a casino, which can be accessed independently as well as through the hotel. Otherwise in terms of other facilities, there is a business centre, where computers and internet can be accessed free of charge for guests. There is also a good-sized wellness centre, where guests can book a range of treatments with advance notice of at least 24 hours. The gym is free for guests and is found on the 4th floor.
