US: Marriott Bonvoy's portfolio of longer stay brands – Element Hotels, Residence Inn by Marriott, and TownePlace Suites by Marriott – has announced a selection of new openings and offerings.

Marriott said: "Poised for continued resilience in a changing travel environment, longer stay brands provide maximised comfort with spacious layouts coupled with residential amenities – perfect for an extended getaway, from a few nights to a few weeks."

Element's newest offering – the Studio Commons communal room concept – consists of four private guest rooms anchored by a common living space, where guests can gather, work, or dine together. In addition to a fully equipped kitchen, Studio Commons features flexible dining or workspace seating for eight guests and a spacious entertainment area.

"We continue to see strong demand for our longer stay hotels from both business and leisure travellers," 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."

All three brands provide guests complimentary access to business centres and fitness facilities. Pets are welcomed, based on weight and for an additional fee, and free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast are a standard at every hotel.

Element Hotels, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites between them have nearly 1,400 hotels around the world. Marriott's longer stay properties account for nearly 30 per cent of the global extended stay supply, with a signed pipeline of 575 additional properties.
