Managed by Gladevale Ventures Limited


November 14, 2011
- Marriott International, Inc. has opened the first Residence Inn branded property in the United Kingdom, the 107-room Residence Inn Edinburgh. The hotel, operated by Marriott International under a management agreement with Gladedale Ventures Limited, is centrally located in the Scottish capital’s new Quartermile development, the city’s most exciting new address.

Boasting 107 stylish and spacious studio and one bedroom suites designed by acclaimed architect Foster + Partners and interior design house ICA Interiors, the Residence Inn Edinburgh is located near the picturesque Edinburgh Castle and the famed Royal Mile, as well as Edinburgh’s bustling business district, University and Haymarket and Waverly rail stations. Each suite offers a kitchen and expansive living, dining and working zones, designed for comfort for travelers staying five days or more. Special amenities include complimentary hot breakfast and Wi-Fi, grocery delivery service, 24/7 marketplace and fitness center.

“Following on the opening of our first Residence Inn in Europe in Munich just last month, we are thrilled to introduce our first Residence Inn hotel in the United Kingdom in the dynamic city of Edinburgh,” said Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe. “With more than 35 years of expertise in long term lodging, Residence Inn offers guests everything they need to thrive and maintain balance while on the road. As Marriott’s third largest lodging brand, we see tremendous potential for growth for this unique service and product in Europe.”

Quartermile is a high quality, mixed-use development that will boast 900 luxury apartments, over 10,000 sq meters of retail space and over 30,000 sq meters of office space when complete.

Residence Inn by Marriott pioneered and defined the extended-stay hotel segment in the United States and currently has more than 620 properties globally. As part of Marriott International’s five year growth plan in Europe, Residence Inn is the fourth new brand to open under the company’s global portfolio this year. Marriott recently introduced AC Hotels by Marriott, Autograph Collection and EDITION hotels to the continent.

Designed for long stays, Residence Inn by Marriott offers spacious suites with separate living and sleeping areas.  Kitchens, grocery delivery, 24-hour markets and complimentary breakfast help guests maintain a healthy balance while on the road.
