London greets Residence Inn

Marriott International has brought its top extended-stay brand to London for the first time with the opening of Residence Inn – London Bridge, featuring 87 studio and one- and two-bedroom suites with separate living, working and sleeping areas.

Each also has a fully equipped kitchen including a refrigerator, microwave, hob, oven, dishwasher and cookware with other amenities such as free hot breakfasts, communal laundry facilities, free wi-fi, and a 24/7 “Grab ’n Go” market in the lobby.

The complex also has an onsite state-of-the-art fitness centre and custom running routes can be accessed via MapMyFitness, thanks to the brand’s global partnership with Under Armour Connected Fitness.

The brand plans to open a second property in the capital later this year in the shape of the Residence Inn London – Kensington with 307 suites and easy access to the Olympia exhibition centre, Royal Albert Hall and the city’s top muesums.

Both properties, owned by a controlled affiliate of Starwood Capital Group, will be operated under franchise by hotel management company and extended-stay market specialist Cycas Hospitality, London’s second largest company of its kind.

The two London properties will be joined by new openings in Aberdeen and Amsterdam in early 2018, with another seven properties anticipated by the end of the following year.
