Cycas Hospitality has secured a deal to operate its first property under the Courtyard by Marriott brand with the 196-room Courtyard London City Airport hotel.
The hotel management company has signed a deal with developer Bricks Capital to operate the seven-storey property which will incorporate a ground-floor restaurant and meeting facilities.
Due to open in 2020, the group said new-build hotel will be a “timely addition” to the airport’s infrastructure as it undergoes a £500m redevelopment, set to quadruple the size of its passenger terminal.
In 2018, Cycas accelerated its European expansion programme through key deals across the UK, France and Benelux which ensure the company is on target to have more than 10,000 guest rooms within its portfolio by 2022.
This deal becomes Cycas’s ninth Marriott-branded hotel and joins Residence Inn and Marriott Moxy Liverpool to become the third Marriott flag operated by Cycas.
John Wagner, co-founder and managing Partner at Cycas Hospitality, said: “Today’s signing is our first Courtyard property in the Cycas portfolio and signals a new chapter in our history.
“While Cycas is known for having pioneered the branded extended-stay hotel concept and developing dual-branded hotels for international hotel groups, this deal to add a new Marriott brand to our portfolio demonstrates the success of our partnership over the last few years as well as the continued relevance of Marriott International’s largest brand for today’s travellers.
“We’re excited to be working in partnership with Bricks Capital to bring this Courtyard by Marriott hotel to a key central London location and look forward to maximising our local knowledge to offer business travellers high-quality accommodation with excellent transport connections across the capital.”
