The Scandic Victoria Tower is a skyscraper hotel in the Kista district of Stockholm, Sweden. It is also known as the Victoria Tower, however the Scandic name is used to distinguish it from the Victoria Tower that forms the southwest end of the Palace of Westminster. The 117 metre hotel is the tallest building in Stockholm, as well as the tallest hotel in Scandinavia.[3] It is named for Crown Princess Victoria, the heir apparent to the Swedish throne.
