Growth through independence and storytelling
Through the years, independent has proven itself as the way to go. Our journey started in 2010 with a small group of remarkable hotels that outgrew the set path of chain hotels. They had to be set free to unleash their potential and personality. Thus, Nordic Hotels & Resorts was born.
Independent hotels demand captivating storytelling. As a product development tool, it is precisely this—exciting ways to tell a story—that creates an emotional response in the guest; how to convey personality and how to create a bond to a brand.
For the last decade, Nordic Hotels & Resorts has both welcomed new members and opened up flagships like Sommerro in Norway, At Six in Stockholm and Villa Copenhagen in Copenhagen. We keep setting the standard for forward-leaning hospitality and we’re only getting started. With a strong ambition of growth, we’ll continue building the Nordics as an exciting destination for travelers and locals alike.

For everything brand and communication, talk to the expert that is Lotta. Where others might boast straight career paths, Lotta’s strength lies in her unexpected journey. She joined Nordic Hotels and Resorts in 2019, then as General Manager for Hobo Hotel. Prior to that, she worked for esteemed ad agency Forsman & Bodenfors, managing clients like H&M, Häagen-Dazs and Systembolaget. Her heart beats for branding; not only did she start PR and lifestyle agency Ibeyostudio, but she was also one of the founders of global fashion success Acne Jeans. Lotta has helmed the brand and communications work of Nordic Hotels & Resorts since 2020.
Annie Kristi Korsmo
If she's promoting it, consider it already sold. As our Director of Sales, Annie is in charge of opening the doors to the world of Nordic Hotels & Resorts. She has a total responsibility for strategic sales in the company, both internationally and locally for the individual brands. When it comes to the hotel and travel industry, few can match the passion Annie has for the sector. Her broad career within Strawberry started as Director of Sales and later Deputy Managing Director at Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania. Throughout the years, she’s worked with both local destination management and international sales, for example in the role as Director of Conventions at Visit Oslo.
Relationship building is the most important part of business; this is the philosophy of Kristofer Skoglund, Commercial Director for Sweden. Known for his passionate leadership and exceptional results, he leads the Swedish commercial engine with an unmatched precision.

From Operations Manager at the popular Hotel C, to Acting General Manager at the serene Yasuragi, Kristofer has been a key player in fostering the collaborative, high-energy, and—most importantly—joyful environment that characterises Nordic Hotels & Resorts.
The commercial space is fast paced and ever-changing. Daniel looks continuously into how we optimize the topline from all commercial disciplines, with the newest data driven insight.
