(16/11/22) Marriott has unveiled plans to expand its
presence in the serviced apartment sector with the launch
of Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy.
The company is aiming to tap into the
growing interest among families and friends who want more space
for stays, propelled by the blending of work and leisure travel.
Serviced apartments have long been popular with
travellers in the know, as they normally provide more space, a fully equipped kitchen or kitchenette, and a washing machine for laundry, all of
which help to provide guests with a more enjoyable stay and home-like feeling.
