Marriott opens first dual-brand property in France

Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn by Marriott Paris Charles de Gaulle Central Airport have now opened as Marriott’s first French dual-brand property.

A seven-minute free shuttle journey from Charles de Gaulle Airport’s Terminals 1, 2 and 3, with train connections to central Paris, the hotels are also just a 10-minute drive from Villepinte Convention Centre and Paris-Le Bourget Airport.

The new-build development brings together a 229-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel under the same roof as the first Residence Inn in Paris; a 106-suite aparthotel. Both hotels offer a mix of room styles, with Courtyard incorporating 46 twin rooms and Residence Inn combining 90 self-contained studios with 16 one-bedroom suites, all with fully-equipped kitchens and access to a self-service laundry.

Guests at both properties can take advantage of the shared facilities, which include a contemporary Kitchen & Bar offering all-day dining, seven meeting spaces offering 212 square metres of event space, underground parking for 50 cars, including four electric charging points, and a 24-hour fitness studio.

Luc Vicherd, VP Operations France at Cycas Hospitality, said: “Our experience in the area has shown us that travellers and corporate bookers increasingly welcome more flexible accommodation options.

“Now, with travel returning to pre-pandemic levels, we are confident this is an ideal time to highlight the benefits of having two different accommodation styles under the same roof and to introduce even more people to the added flexibility serviced apartments offer.”
