Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into franchise agreements with Story Hotels Holding AB to bring three hotels in Sweden under the JDV Hotel brand, helping to grow Hyatt’s independent collection brand in Europe.
The three boutique hotels – Story Hotel Riddargatan and Story Hotel Signalfabriken in Stockholm, as well as Story Hotel Studio Malmö, Sweden – will all retain their individual hotel names and unique identities. All three hotels will feature individually designed boutique guestrooms, vibrant public spaces, and food and beverage offerings popular with both visitors and locals alike.
An 83-room property widely believed to be one of Stockholm’s original boutique hotels, the Story Hotel Riddargatan will have an industrial design to represent the building’s former life as an apartment complex, barber shop, and garage. The hotel will feature a restaurant, Ling Long, specializing in Southeast Asian cuisine, and one indoor and one outdoor bar.
Story Hotel Signalfabriken will feature 83 individually designed guestrooms and a vibrant bar and restaurant. Formerly a fire station and town hall, this listed property in Sundbyberg’s Torg neighborhood will attract business travelers with meetings in the surrounding areas of Solna, Bromma, and Kista.
Story Hotel Studio Malmö (shown) will feature 95 unique guestrooms, all creative and playful in their design to reflect the young and vibrant population of the city. Situated on the top floors of a high-rise building, the hotel is part of the mixed-use STUDIO building, which also houses conference and meeting facilities, corporate offices, retail outlets, several restaurants and a café. The hotel’s restaurant and cocktail bar, Kasai in the Sky, will deliver food and drink on Malmö’s highest outdoor terrace with views of the ocean and city skyline.
