One of the most iconic hotels in the Nordic region, the Hotel Kämp, is to join The Leading Hotels of the World.
Hotel Kämp, part of Kämp Collection Hotels and located in the heart of Helsinki, has played an important, cultural role in Finland since it opened in 1887. The hotel has been the home to heads of state, celebrities and influencers for over 100 years and was founded before Finland became an independent state in 1917. The hotel sits at the gateway between east and west and architecturally brings Parisian flair and European elegance to Helsinki.
The prestigious hotel has 179 rooms and suites, including the 258 sq.m Mannerheim Suite which has its own private sauna, as well as a spa, two restaurants including YUME offering contemporary Asian cuisine, and a bar and summer terrace. There is also an impressive art collection with 450 pieces of artwork showcasing the breathtaking diversity of Finnish contemporary graphic art.
Marc Skvorc, General Manager at Hotel Kämp, commented: “Hotel Kämp is Helsinki´s crown jewel among hotels and a major landmark for the city. It is an historical Finnish icon which breathes accessible exclusivity and luxury. As a team, we are honored to become a part of the distinctive The Leading Hotels of the World collection. A significant sense of heritage and personalized service is our forte. Membership of The Leading Hotels of the World is a perfect match and will bring even more benefits to our guests.”
In January 2016, the Kämp Group introduced its new corporate identity, which also involved renaming the group as Kämp Collection Hotels. The start of the year also featured the launch of an extensive international recruitment campaign to find top managers for the hotels. The new strategy aims to strengthen the positioning of the luxury and lifestyle hotels in the group’s portfolio and the membership of Hotel Kämp in The Leading Hotels of the World is an important step in the new direction.
“For more than 125 years, Hotel Kämp has played a central role at the heart of social life in Helsinki. Having hosted key international political leaders and military dignitaries, the hotel has witnessed eras and events integral to the recent history of Finland,” said Deniz Omurgonulsen, Vice President, Membership, The Leading Hotels of the World. “We are delighted to welcome Hotel Kämp to our collection, as it will enrich the variety of our portfolio of uncommon luxury hotels, and will offer an ideal hotel for our customers visiting this major European capital.”
Laura Tarkka, CEO of Kämp Collection Hotels, says: “We are proud and privileged to become a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. We also felt that timing was right for the most legendary luxury hotel in Finland to join the collection.”
