Marriott International has announced the opening of its first dual-branded property in the UK, the 152-room Moxy hotel and 92-suite Residence Inn. Located in the Berkshire town of Slough, the development is owned by Slough Borough Council.
Each property has its own entrance and reception, but share facilities including the ground floor Moxy Bar, and the Residence Inn Bar and Lounge, plus a gym, a ninth floor terrace, six meeting rooms and four larger interconnecting event spaces.
In addition to the Moxy hotel and Residence Inn – the first extended stay hotel in Slough – the development on the site of the town’s former library also features 64 apartments and 4,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space.
The property is operated by Cycas Hospitality. “This is a landmark development for the town as well as all the partners involved, and we’re delighted to have been instrumental in bringing two well-known accommodation brands to the area,” commented Wayne Androliakos, Cycas Hospitality’s chief operating officer.
“With the former library site now transformed into a vibrant destination, we are confident that the addition of two high-profile hotel brands will help boost Slough’s profile and add renewed life to the town center.”
