A modernist classic from 1962, the Marski Hotel was recently renovated and themed around “Finnfulness” – the open mindedness, urban lifestyle and love of nature that personifies modern Finns.
The design and interiors of Marski by Scandic are inspired by the outdoors: the dark green Finnish woods, the thousands of lakes and the warm reds of Finnish berries. The hotel’s light wooden floors are paired with grey stone reminiscent of the cliffs in the Finnish archipelago and the furniture is a blend of modern Finnish design and influences from abroad. In the hotel rooms, Finnfulness and Helsinki are brought to life through images of nature by local photographer Seppo Alanko.
Marski by Scandic, which is Scandic’s first signature hotel in Finland, is more than a place to stay – it’s an extra living room and place to work, meet, hang out and get inspired. Guests can also view exciting art exhibitions and listen to interesting and coming and established artists and DJs playing, while sipping craft cocktails at the Marski Bar or enjoy Finnish classics with an international twist at the Kuusi Palaa restaurant.
As at all Scandic hotels, sustainability is a natural part of operations at Marski by Scandic. During the renovation, the hotel’s building systems were updated to meet today’s energy-efficiency requirements. Marski has the official Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification with strict requirements regarding limiting consumption of energy, water and chemical as well as source separation of waste. Recycled materials have also been used whenever possible including in staff uniforms and table napkins as well as in the hotel umbrellas.
