Glitz, Glam, and Eternal Summer: Hotel Riviera in Moss Is Now Open

On Monday, May 22, Hotel Riviera opened its doors. On the site of the old Moss Jernverk, a new hotel destination is  being created with its own beach promenade and riviera pool on the 14th floor.

The dreamy vibes of Côte d'Azur meet the crashing waves of the Norwegian coast. Finally, our sunny gem Hotel Riviera opens in Moss, Norway.

– On the very day that Nordic Choice Hotels changed its name to Strawberry, we opened the doors to our newest addition in Moss. Hotel Riviera is wonderfully located at Verket – with 172 rooms, its own beach promenade and rooftop pool, the hotel will be the focal point for a completely new part of the city. What was once Moss Jernverk is now filled with new life, in true Riviera style, says owner of Strawberry, Petter A. Stordalen.

Now, you can enjoy that characteristic Riviera charm, done differently. Hotel Riviera offers 172 rooms, all with balconies or French balconies, unique conference and banquet facilities, brasserie, bars, wellness area with roof pool and private beach promenade.

– We have drawn inspiration from all corners of the world. With a pulsating atmosphere and distinctive style, we will ensure that our guests get the ultimate Riviera feeling all year round. With us, there are only two seasons, summer and almost summer, says Petter Wilhelmsen, General Manager at Hotel Riviera.

Norwegian Hospitality Group is the concept developer and operator of the hotel, and managing director Erling M. Kristensen is optimistic on behalf of the city and the entire Oslofjord region.

– Hotel Riviera will be a unique destination hotel and a design gem that will attract great attention in Norway, the Nordics and internationally. For Moss and the surrounding area, this investment will make a strong contribution to the positive urban development taking place at Verket in Moss.

General Manager Petter Wilhelmsen says that interest in the project has been great, and that events have already been booked at the hotel.

– This weekend, major events will be taking place at the hotel and the first Riviera wedding will be held. We have also had fantastic demand in bookings, and are looking forward to welcoming guests and locals to Hotel Riviera, concludes Wilhelmsen.

Hotel Riviera, together with sister hotels Son Spa, Farris Bad and Strömstad Spa & Resort, is part of Nordic Hotels & Resorts—a collection of unique, individual hotels in Strawberry (formerly Nordic Choice Hotels).
