The corner of Falkoner Allé and Howitzvej where the centre complex now stands, was previously the site of Frederiksberg’s first town hall which was built there in 1886 but torn down in 1953. The new centre was built between 1958 and 1959 to a Modernist design by Ole Hagen. It was the tallest building of Denmark from 1958 to 1960, when it was surpassed by the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel. It was the site of the last concert by Judy Garland on March 25, 1969 with opening act by singer Johnnie Ray. The Doors also played there. It was renovated in 1987 and given a new stainless steel cladding.
The hotel was previously owned by SAS but changed hands in connection with the company’s sale of its hotel activities to Radisson Blu. Since 2019, the hotel is owned by Scandic Hotel Group. Scandic is the largest Nordic hotel operator with a network of about 280 hotels with 57,000 rooms in six countries and annual sales of SEK 18 billion 2018.
