Marriott’s new London Residences

Marriott has opened its first extended-stay Residence Inn property in London, with a second on course to open later in the year.

Its debut property in London Bridge lies on Long Lane and comprises 87 studio, one and two-bedroom suites, while the 307-suite Residence Inn London Kensington will open before the year’s end.

Suites at the London Bridge property feature separate living, working and sleeping areas, as well as fully equipped kitchens and free wifi.

The property also includes communal laundry facilities, a 24/7 Grab ’n’ Go Market in the lobby and fitness centre.

“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,” says John Licence, VP Premium & Select Brands Europe at Marriott International.

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, and a further seven properties are anticipated by the end of 2019.
