Marriott Opens Residence Inn London – London Bridge

Marriott has expanded its portfolio of hotels in London, England with the opening of Residence Inn London – London Bridge,  marking a debut in the capital for the company’s extended-stay brand.

Located on Long Lane in Southwark, Residence Inn London – London Bridge offers 87 studio, one and two-bedroom suites with separate living, working and sleeping areas, as well as fully equipped kitchens, including refrigerator, microwave, hob, oven, dishwasher and cookware.

Residence Inn London – London Bridge offers guests complimentary hot breakfasts, communal laundry facilities, free Wi-Fi, and a 24/7 Grab ’n Go Market in the lobby.

An onsite, state-of-the-art fitness centre is available 24/7 and custom running routes can be accessed via MapMyFitness, thanks to the brand’s global partnership with Under Armour Connected Fitness.

Residence Inn London – London Bridge is well-connected, with good transport links, and is located a short walk from some of the city’s main historic attractions such as Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

John Licence, VP Premium & Select Brands Europe at Marriott International said, “London is a key, strategic destination for  extended-stay travel and we are delighted to debut the world-leading Residence Inn by Marriott brand here with not one, but two new properties that offer a home-away-from-home experience for business and leisure guests alike.”

A second Residence Inn by Marriott will open later this year. Residence Inn London – Kensington will be situated on Warwick Road in Earls Court, offering 307 suites with easy access to The Kensington Olympia Exhibition Centre as well as The Victoria and Albert museum, the Science Museum, Royal Albert Hall, and the Natural History museum.

Both properties, owned by a controlled affiliate of Starwood Capital Group, will be operated under a franchise agreement with hotel management company and specialists in the extended-stay market, Cycas Hospitality – London’s second largest operator of serviced apartment and apart-hotels.

John Wagner, Founding Partner of Cycas Hospitality, said, “We are thrilled to welcome the world-class Residence Inn brand to the extended-stay sector in London and to our own expanding hotel portfolio. We look forward to creating memorable moments for all our guests visiting these two new Residence Inn properties. Delivering a first-rate guest experience is in the DNA of all our Cycas Hospitality staff and we have an excellent track record to prove it.”

The two London properties will be joined by new openings in Aberdeen and Amsterdam in early 2018, growing the European portfolio from three to seven hotels. These four additions alone will see almost 600 rooms added to the Residence Inn portfolio, and there are a further seven properties anticipated by the end of 2019.
