Haymarket by Scandic named Best Individual Hotel at Grand Travel Awards 2018

On the evening of Monday, February 12, Haymarket by Scandic accepted the Grand Travel Awards prize for Best Individual Hotel in Sweden. The award ceremony took place at the At Six hotel in Stockholm. Scandic was also nominated for the Best Hotel Chain Sweden award and the Sustainability Award for the Year.

Haymarket by Scandic, which opened in 2016, is a hotel inspired by the optimism and elegance of the 1920s. It is located in the building that earlier housed the famous PUB department store where Greta Garbo once worked, and many of the original details of the magnificent building have been restored or reinterpreted. The hotel attracts locals and curious tourists alike with its vibrant surroundings, Paul’s restaurant, Gretas café and Americain cocktail bar.

Haymarket by Scandic was named Sweden’s Best Individual Hotel with the following motivation: A modern, attractive hotel characterized by a cool theme, green thinking and a very good breakfast.

- It’s truly fantastic that we’ve won as prestigious an award as Best Individual Hotel and even more impressive considering so many other hotels that do such an incredibly good job were also nominated, says Lars Sandberg, Hotel Director at Haymarket by Scandic.

This was the 26th consecutive year that Grand Travel Awards conferred prizes on behalf of travel industry magazine Travel News. A jury nominated candidates for a total of 17 awards. The results were then based on market research conducted on behalf of Travel News, where travel agents from across the country rated the nominees based on support/service, product quality and development and marketing activities/advertising.
