Marriott International’s third largest lodging brand, Residence Inn by Marriott, today celebrates the opening of its first property in Europe, the 125-room Residence Inn Munich City East. The Residence Inn Munich City East opens alongside the new 227-room Courtyard by Marriott Munich City East under a franchise agreement with SV Group. Residence Inn by Marriott, the pioneer in the extended-stay hotel segment, has more than 600 properties globally.
“Marriott continues to grow throughout Europe and we are excited to add a brand as powerful and well-respected as Residence Inn to our portfolio,” said Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe. “With over 35 years of expertise in extended stay lodging, Residence Inn offers long-stay guests everything they need to thrive and maintain balance while on the road. With its robust economy and influx of national and international companies, Munich is the perfect location for our first Residence Inn in Europe. Next month we will open our second Residence Inn in Edinburgh, Scotland and see tremendous potential for future growth.”
As part of an ambitious five year growth plan in Europe, Residence Inn by Marriot is the fourth new brand to open under Marriott International’s global portfolio of brands this year. Earlier this year, Marriott introduced AC Hotels by Marriott, Autograph Collection and EDITION hotels to Europe for the first time.
