Champions Battle 2018: Caroline Wozniacki & Venus Williams present in Telia Parken - and at Copenhagen Marriott Hotel

#championsbattle2018 #CB18


It was a big day for the 12-year old Caroline Wozniacki when she back in 2002 got the chance of meeting her tennis idol Venus Williams, who led the women's tennis world rankings. Now the historical day repeats itself when the Australian Open 2018 winner, Caroline Wozniacki meets the American tennis legend Venus Williams in Telia Parken. Copenhagen Marriott Hotel has the pleasure of hosting the super stars during Champions Battle as well as hosting the official press meeting - and it's not a coinsidence!

When the two tennis stars Caroline Wozniacki and Venus Williams - who have met each other several times in WTA context but for the first time are playing an exhibition match in Denmark - both are checking in at Copenhagen Marriott hotel at Kalvebod Brygge where also the official press meeting will take place on the 29th of April, it is definitely not a coinsidence. 

The hotel also hosted Venus Williams back in 2002 in the luxury suite when she then played an exhibition match against the slovakian Daniela Hantuchova in Copenhagen. When the five-star hotel is welcoming the tennis stars in the end of April, they will i.a. be staying in the new refurbished suite 'The Royal Suite'.
 

The Royal Suite is newly refurbished for 4.5 million Danish crowns. Featuring handpicked interiors and custom furniture, the 170 sq.m. Royal Suite combines international luxury with the elegant lightness of Nordic design traditions. The Royal Suite feels like a luxurious penthouse apartment with an impressive city view from panoramic windows. The Royal Suite consists of a social and a private section. The social section is comprised by a lounge area, a dining and meeting area as well as an open kitchen. The private section features a master bedroom, the grand bathroom with spa-like amenities, and a walk-in closet. 

The hotel has always attracted various international stars, politicians and royals who appreciate a very high level of service and the at times subdued luxury that caraterises the Marriott brand. 

 

"We have been looking forward to offering our many international VIP guests an exceptional accomodation opportunity in the Royal Suite and it's of course fantastic to also welcoming the two tennis legends. It's a great continuation of the history that we can welcome both Caroline Wozniacki and Venus Williams at Copenhagen Marriott and secure them five-star accommodation, caracterising the hotel, for both of them to be well prepared for the exhibition match."

- Morten Jensen, Group Marketing Director, BC Hospitality Group
