Slough Urban Renewal has announced the two hotels in the centre of Slough will be Cycas Hospitality operated Marriott International hotels.
This dual-branded hotel development will be operated by Cycas Hospitality.
SUR has agreed heads of terms with Cycas for two new Marriott International hotels – Moxy and Residence Inn – for the site of the old library which closed earlier this year
It will include a 144-room affordable boutique Moxy Hotel and a 92-room extended-stay Residence Inn, both of which will be operated under a single lease, in the same building.
Councillor Zaffar Ajaib, commissioner for housing and urban renewal, said: “The proposal for hotels on this site has been designed as a major trigger for increased regeneration in the centre of Slough and with the restaurant space and increased occupation of the area it will have a positive impact on the evening economy.
“Having such a big-name hotel operator on board shows the commitment we all have to regenerating the centre of the borough and I welcome Cycas to Slough.”
Andy Howell, General Manager of Slough Urban Renewal said: “We are particularly excited to be bringing two internationally acclaimed brands to Slough in time for the opening of Crossrail in 2019.
“The delivery of The Curve by SUR has created a perfect site for these two hotels in a key location in the heart of Slough, with unrivalled access to Slough Station.”
Eduard Elias, Cycas Hospitality Managing Partner said: “This is an exciting time to be investing in the heart of Slough.
“The town is undergoing a huge transformation and will, after the opening of Crossrail, become a real hub between Heathrow and Central London.
“After the success of our dual branded hotels in London Stratford (Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites), we are now implementing similar dual branded projects in Slough, Manchester and Amsterdam.”
The proposals for the old library site also include a ground floor restaurant and bar and the leasing of a part of the Burlington car park to provide hotel visitor parking.
Apartments are also due to be built on part of the site.
