Marriott has opened its latest extended stay hotel in Europe, with the unveiling of the Residence Inn by Marriott Brussels Airport.

The 127-suite property is located around 5km from the airport, and within walking distance of NATO’s headquarters.

The hotel offers a mixture of studio and one-bedroom suites with fully-equipped kitchens, as well as an onsite restaurant and bar, gym, laundry, meeting space and parking facilities.

The property is being managed by Cycas Hospitality, which also recently opened the Radisson Hotel and Suites Amsterdam South – the group’s first extended stay property in Western Europe.

Commenting on the news Matt Luscombe, Cycas Hospitality’s chief executive officer, said:

“To open two hotels with two international hospitality companies in one region on the same day is a momentous first for us. It’s also testament to Cycas’s exceptional team of hospitality experts that we’ve been able to defy the challenging circumstances by continuing to expand our European presence.

“At Cycas we’ve long talked about the ‘home-from-home’ approach of aparthotels, and the pandemic has definitely showcased the benefits of accommodation designed with longer-staying guests in mind. With their extra working and living spaces, plus self-catering facilities, both properties are well placed to cater for the growing demand for extended-stay accommodation.

“We therefore look forward to bridging the gap between hotels and home for project workers, business travellers and holidaymakers visiting the region.”

Cycas also opened a dual-branded Moxy and Residence Inn development in the Berkshire town of Slough earlier this year.
