The 196-room Courtyard London City Airport will be housed within a seven-story building, which will feature a restaurant and meeting facilities on the ground floor.
The hotel is expected to open in 2020, and according to John Wagner, managing partner and co-founder of Cycas Hospitality, the property will be located “across the street” from the airport.
“Today’s signing is our first Courtyard property in the Cycas portfolio and signals a new chapter in our history,” said Wagner.
“While Cycas is known for having pioneered the branded extended-stay hotel concept and developing dual-branded hotels for international hotel groups, this deal to add a new Marriott brand to our portfolio demonstrates the success of our partnership over the last few years as well as the continued relevance of Marriott International’s largest brand for today’s travellers.
“We’re excited to be working in partnership with Bricks Capital to bring this Courtyard by Marriott hotel to a key central London location and look forward to maximising our local knowledge to offer business travellers high-quality accommodation with excellent transport connections across the capital.”
Last month Cycas announced plans to manage a property under Marriott’s Moxy Hotels brand in Liverpool.
London City airport is undergoing a £480 million development programme, which will see the existing passenger terminal extended and eight new aircraft stands created.
Hotels currently operating close to the airport include the Travelodge London City Airport, and the Ibis Budget London City Airport.
Marriott recently revealed plans to open five new Courtyard properties in the UK by the end of 2020.
