Airport Center Hotel

Reaching for the sky

With a footprint of approximately 38,000 gross square meters, the Airport Center Hotel stands as Finland’s largest airport hotel. It’s located centrally, immediately adjacent to the airport’s new terminal, south of the Ring Road station, and beside the P2 parking facility.

The architecture of the airport area is characterized by large-scale buildings and thoroughfares, such as terminals, access roads and adjacent parking garages. The 12-story hotel in their immediate vicinity practically fills the given plot entirely, including the space created by air barrier interfaces, restricting the height of the building.

Two hotel brand concepts are located in the building: The 505-room Clarion Hotel and the 211-room Comfort Hotel, operating as a conference hotel. The total number of hotel rooms is 716.

The congress functions consist of a large meeting room on the ground floor, which can hold 1,080 people, with smaller meeting rooms on the ground floor, 1st floor and 2nd floor. Hotel receptions and restaurants are located on the 1st and 2nd floors.

Due to air traffic noise, the facades of the hotel room floors 3 to 11 are made of sandwich concrete elements. The entire facade of the building is covered with vertical glass walls and perforated aluminum elements.

The building brushes the air barrier interface with a slanted roof rising towards the west corner. Here, visitors can enjoy the observation bar with its roof terrace, opening up to vast airport landscapes.

In the middle of the building mass, on the 4th floor, there is a green courtyard with a spa, offering wellness services.
