Cycas Hospitality and Slough Urban Renewal (SUR) have agreed heads of terms for two new Marriott International hotels – Moxy and Residence Inn – to be located on the former Central Library site, a landmark location on the A4 between the station and the town centre.
The dual branded hotel development will be operated by Cycas Hospitality, the specialist extended-stay hotel management company. It will include a 144-room affordable boutique Moxy Hotel and a 92-room extended-stay Residence Inn, both of which will be operated under a single lease, in the same building.
Andy Howell, General Manager of Slough Urban Renewal said: “We are particularly excited to be bringing two internationally acclaimed brands to Slough in time for the opening of Crossrail in 2019. The delivery of The Curve by SUR has created a perfect site for these two hotels in a key location in the heart of Slough, with unrivalled access to Slough Station.”
Eduard Elias, Cycas Hospitality Managing Partner said: “This is an exciting time to be investing in the heart of Slough. The town is undergoing a huge transformation and will after the opening of Crossrail become a real hub between Heathrow and Central London. After the success of our dual branded hotels in London Stratford (Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites), we are now implementing similar dual branded projects in Slough, Manchester and Amsterdam.”
SUR is a joint venture partnership between Slough Borough Council and Morgan Sindall Investments Limited. Its purpose is to deliver high quality commercial, residential and community buildings to transform the Borough of Slough.
