Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of longer stay brands – Element Hotels, Residence Inn by Marriott, and TownePlace Suites by Marriott – announced a selection of new openings and offerings, providing travelers with more room to relax in new global destinations. Poised for continued resilience in a changing travel environment, longer stay brands provide maximized comfort with spacious layouts coupled with residential amenities – perfect for an extended getaway, from a few nights to a few weeks.

“We continue to see strong demand for our longer stay hotels from both business and leisure travelers,” said Tina Edmundson, Global Brand and Marketing Officer, Marriott International. "From the innovative Studio Commons offering at Element Hotels to comfortable one-bedroom suites at Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites, Marriott Bonvoy offers a breadth of brands with options that offer extra space to travel and live well. We are delighted to introduce a bevy of new properties that will provide the ultimate residential comfort to create a home away from home.”

As the lines between business and leisure continue to blur, small groups are seeking more space to work and relax, while essential business travelers are spending longer periods on the road. Longer stay hotels are the premier choice of accommodations for a hassle-free experience with desired amenities and limited housekeeping on-demand.

All three brands provide guests complimentary access to business centers and fitness facilities. Pets are welcomed, based on weight and for an additional fee, to help guests maintain a connection to their furry companions, no matter where they go. And free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast are a standard at every hotel. Outside of urban locations, guests can unwind with ample outdoor space including firepits and grills, setting the stage for casual relaxation and social interaction. Each of the three brands offer distinct experiences, allowing guests to seamlessly replicate their everyday routine while exploring.
