After renovation, the four-star superior business and conference hotel has 258 hotel rooms instead of the previous 267 rooms. The renovation project was designed by interior architects Kaire Kemp-Tišler and Ea Andla from the Artaku Interior Architecture firm. Furniture specially commissioned from Estonian designers was used to furnish the hotel.
The ventilation and other technical systems of the hotel were entirely rebuilt, so as to meet the requirements of the post-virus world. Nordic Hotel Forum is the first hotel in Estonia to have virus control equipment installed all across the building. For example, the conference centre has been equipped with mobile virus control devices produced by the Finnish firm Genano, which removes nano particles, bacteria, and viruses from the air. As an additional safety measure, hotel is offering the hotel and conference center visitors wearable air purifiers Respiray, developed in Estonia. They use UV technology to purify 99% of the air to be breathed in and direct the purified air in the direction of the mouth and nose of the wearer.
During the renovation process modern contactless solutions were also introduced. For example, contactless registration upon arrival, opening the doors of hotel rooms with a smart device, payments without having to contact the staff; for the latter hotel is using a digital system created in Estonia.
Nordic Hotel Forum has received the Green Key certificate for its environmentally friendly operations.
