- A hospitality business in constant development
The history of BC Hospitality Group is rooted in Bella Center Copenhagen. More than fifty years of solid development marked by innovation, success and growth has resulted in the multifaceted group we know today.
From Bellahøj to Vestamager
In 1965, Copenhagen Trade Fair marked the start for Bella Center at Bellahøj and on 5 September 1975, HM The Queen opened the new Bella Center Copenhagen, thus laying the foundations for a new international exhibition and congres
The first hotel
On 16 May 2011, Bella Center Copenhagen opened its doors to its biggest commercial venture ever the designer hotel Bella Sky Comwell - today AC Hotel Bella Sky Copenhagen - which has since become a landmark on the island of Amager. With 23 floors and 811 designer bedrooms, Bella Sky is one of the biggest hotels in Scandinavia, and offers a spa, fitness centre restaurants and bars.
In 2012, both Bella Center Copenhagen and Bella Sky were acquired by Solstra Capital Partners with a view to expanding conference capacity and building new offices and housing.
2014 - an eventful year
2014 saw several separate organisations being merged to form a united group under the name BC Hospitality Group.
Bella Center Copenhagen, Crowne Plaza and Bella Sky was united under the same management, and in November, BC Hospitality Group opened the doors to Comwell Conference Center Copenhagen. Just before the end of 2014, yet another hotel was added to the portfolio, the five-star Marriott Copenhagen. In connection with the acquisition of the Marriott Hotel, Bella Sky was rebranded AC Hotel Bella Sky Copenhagen – thereby becoming part of the Marriott family.
The next hotel: Hilton Copenhagen City Centre opens 2021
In 2018 it was announced that Hilton would return to Copenhagen as a part of BC Hospitality Group. The new hotel will be located in the former Nordea domicile (the "Desert Fort"), and will be ready to open in the beginning of 2021 after an extensive refurbishment.
