By Sasha Wood, published 06/02/20

New UK-based hotel brand The Resident has launched with four properties in central London and one in the heart of Liverpool.

The group has taken over former Nadler Hotels in Covent Garden, Soho, Victoria and Kensington and opened a new property in Liverpool city centre.

All the properties’ 379 bedrooms and public areas will be fully refurbished by the end of March.

Resident hotels’ interiors reflect its roots with fabrics and furnishings from British designers such as Paul Smith, plus textiles in the rooms and lobbies sourced from Scottish-based Bute fabrics.

The hotels will feature a variety of room types with amenities including mini kitchens with Nespresso machines and room service from carefully-selected local eateries, a Berry Bros & Rudd wine list, Mac and Wild cocktails, Mr Filbert’s nuts and Love Cocoa chocolate by James Cadbury.

There’s also a fridge-fill service available upon request.

The Resident brand will pride itself on offering a personal and welcoming experience, introducing hosted evening drinks for all guests where they can get local advice, socialise or plan their stay.

Resident Hotels’ CEO, David JM Orr, says: “We are delighted to be launching a new British hotel brand, The Resident. The Resident emphatically puts the guest at the heart of everything we do, offering a meaningful travel experience where guests can connect with the local neighbourhood and feel like a resident.

“We look forward, in the near future, to announcing responsible and sustainable growth plans for The Resident.”

The group plans to expand with up to 1,500 hotel rooms in the UK in the next seven years.

Room prices at the hotels start from £219 in London and from £109 in Liverpool.
