John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands Europe at Marriott International, said: “Residence Inn by Marriott London Kensington has been one of our most highly-anticipated launches in Europe. Not only is it the largest Residence Inn in Europe, but it is the third largest in the world, and a flagship property for the brand. “London is a key market for extended-stay travel and we are delighted to launch the city’s second Residence Inn following last year’s opening of Residence Inn by Marriott London Bridge.”

Balancing work with life

Located on Warwick Road in Earls Court close to transport connections and cultural attractions, the longer-stay hotel features 319 suites. Some offer private terraces and impressive views across the capital. Guests can also take in London’s skyline from an eighth-floor terrace available to hire as an events space.One- and two-bedroom suites include separate living, working and sleeping areas across seven categories designed for business travellers taking longer stays. Wi-Fi, smart TVs, USB plug points and work-desk space are also on offer. Complimentary breakfast is served seven days a week, while the Grab’n Go market and Fitness Centre are both open 24/7. There is also a grocery delivery service available.

Meeting growing demand for extended-stay accommodation in London

John Wagner, co-founder of Cycas Hospitality, added: “We know that guest expectations and travelling styles have evolved in recent years, creating a growing demand for centrally-located properties that bridge the gap between hotels and home.“Opening London’s biggest aparthotel will therefore allow us to widen the accommodation options available to business travellers whilst also putting the capital’s most popular cultural attractions within easy reach of our long-stay leisure guests.”The opening of Residence Inn by Marriott London Kensington marks the brand’s seventh property in Europe with further expansion in the pipeline, including the brand’s entry into new markets such as France, with the opening of Residence Inn Toulouse-Blagnac.For related news and features, visit our serviced apartments pages.
