Marriott International has opened its first dual-branded property in the UK, located in the Berkshire town of Slough, UK.
Developed and owned by Slough Borough Council, both hotels are operated by hotel management company Cycas Hospitalitywho in 2018 opened Marriott’s first dual-branded property in Europe under the Moxy and Residence Inn brands in Amsterdam. The development was built via Slough Urban Renewal (SUR) – a joint venture between the council and Morgan Sindall Investments Ltd.
244-room hotel complex forms
Occupying the lower four floors, Moxy Slough offers 152 guest rooms, including 28 twin and eight accessible rooms.
Residence Inn by Marriott Slough is the first branded extended-stay property in Slough. It has 92 suites and offers fully equipped kitchens.
The properties have their own entrances and receptions, but share facilities including a gym, a ninth-floor terrace, six meeting rooms and four larger interconnecting event spaces, the ground floor Moxy Bar, and the Residence Inn Bar and Lounge.
This is a landmark development for the town as well as all the partners involved, and we’re delighted to have been instrumental in bringing two well-known accommodation brands to the area.
With our experience of developing double-decker hotels, we understand the benefits a ‘two-in-one’ approach can deliver to travellers and travel bookers. With the former library site now transformed into a vibrant destination, we are confident that the addition of two high-profile hotel brands will help boost Slough’s profile and add renewed life to the town centre.

These two properties represent the first of nine to be opened by Cycas Hospitality across Europe this year.
