General Manager appointed to new dual-brand Marriott in Copenhagen

November 1st, 2023

Marriott is opening its 5th and 6th hotels in Copenhagen soon, launching two new brands in the Danish capital within one property. The two hotels will be led by a Cluster General Manager that the operating company, Core Hospitality, has now appointed: Patrice Boman.

To take the lead at the upcoming dual-branded Marriott hotel in Copenhagen, operator Core Hospitality has recruited Patrice Boman as General Manager. Transferring from his role as Hotel Manager at Scandic Palace in Copenhagen, Patrice brings 15 years of experience from Marriott, Hilton, IHG and Radisson, as well as a bachelor’s degree in hotel management from the University of Strathclyde.

We are very happy to introduce our General Manager at the upcoming Marriott hotels in Copenhagen: Patrice Boman. Patrice has already proven to us that he is a strong team player, a trustworthy leader, and good at understanding the organization he is now a part of. We are confident that Patrice will ensure that the two new hotels will perform very well,” says Sanne Nørgaard Færgsted, Director of Operations at Core Hospitality.

Hotel information

The hotel that Patrice Boman is General Manager of combines two of Marriott International’s megabrands. On one side, longer stay guests at Residence Inn by Marriott can rejoice in apartment-styled suites with separate living, working and sleeping areas, including a fully functional kitchen. On the other side, a traditional select-service hotel brings Fairfield by Marriott, one of the largest brands in the world, to Europe for the first time.

I’m grateful for this opportunity to climb to the top of the management team at a hotel. And not just any hotel. The combination of two brand categories and the launch of the Fairfield brand in Europe make this an exciting new hotel to launch in Copenhagen. I am currently accepting applications for all roles, and I am really excited to find the team that will help me open the hotel,” says Patrice Boman, General Manager at the Fairfield & Residence Inn Copenhagen Nordhavn hotel.

In addition to the powerful Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, the hotel is set to be competitive from a sustainability perspective, too. The hotel aims to be both DGNB Gold and Green Key certified after opening. Among the many initiatives are 800 sqm solar panels on the roof with additional power coming from 100% renewable sources, eco-certified chemicals, schemes to decrease overall chemical use, and bike rental, among others.
