December 2023 will see the opening of the Hotel Maria in Helsinki, heralding a new era in luxury Nordic hospitality with a level of refinement and excellence that is a first for the region. The luxurious property is located in one of the city’s most prestigious addresses, in close proximity to the Presidential Palace and Senate Square. Steeped in tradition and reimagined to create a sophisticated escape for discerning guests, the hotel features 117 unique guest rooms, including 38 majestic suites. The hotel offers fine dining at Restaurant Lilja and at the Garden Terrace, as well as cocktails and snacks at the Maria Bar. The Maria Spa features a traditional Finnish sauna, a unique steam room, four intimate treatment rooms, and a series of jacuzzi and plunge pools designed for absolute relaxation.
The hotel's name refers to Grand Duchess Maria Feodorovna, a royal of Nordic descent born as Princess Dagmar of Denmark, who became Empress of Russia and the mother of the last Emperor of Russia, Nicholas II. Known amongst her fellow royals for her grace, captivating beauty and intelligence, Grand Duchess Maria was a true cosmopolitan of her day. She often retreated to Finland, which became her sanctuary to escape the pressures of royal life. The Hotel Maria is bookable for 2024 already now. Via Hansa & Borealis recommends the hotel for discerning individual travelers. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
