Marriott will open its first Residence Inn by Marriott branded hotel in the UK at Gladedale Capital’s £450m Quartermile development in Edinburgh.

The Residence Inn by Marriot caters for travellers on longer stays and has over 600 brands worldwide. This however will be its first UK opening.

The 107 bed apartment hotel is due to open in late summer.

Gladedale Capital managing director, Paul Curran said: “The Edinburgh hotel market is the top performing in the UK, outside London, with current rates of occupancy upwards of 80%, so it is the perfect platform for Marriott to launch its Residence Inn brand in the UK.”
