Dublin-based aparthotel company Staycity Group is set to open its first ‘resort-style’ property comprising apartments, villas and a restaurant in Paris.
Staycity Aparthotels Paris, Marne-la-Vallee will feature 284 studio and one-bedroom apartments, 22 holiday villas, an outdoor swimming pool, cafe and restaurant, as well as gardens and terraces.
Located 35 minutes by car from central Paris and ten minutes from Disneyland Paris, the resort will be situated close to the Val d’Europe RER station and the Marne-la-Vallee-Chessy terminus with connections to and from Charles de Gaulle airport in 12 minutes.
The new-build property – Staycity’s second in Paris – will offer guest facilities such as a lounge, children’s play area, gardens, and a gym, as well as parking for 182 vehicles.
For business guests, the resort will feature three meeting rooms and a break-out area.
The property is due to open in August.
CEO and co-founder Tom Walsh said: “We are thrilled to be opening in this fantastic location with what will be our first property with extensive leisure facilities alongside holiday villas. Marne-la-Vallee will particularly appeal to leisure guests and the villas will be popular with families or groups of friends, although our guest profile is still expected to be around 20-30 per cent corporate business.”
Staycity has entered a period of rapid growth, with 2019 set to bring the opening of new properties in Berlin, Venice, Edinburgh and Manchester.
In addition, the company has announced the acquisition of a former theatre site on Francis Street in Dublin, which will open in 2020 with 242 apartments alongside restaurants, shops and an exhibition centre. It will also open a dual-branded property in London’s Paddington as part of a £198 million complex with Premier Inn, which is set for completion in 2021.
Staycity’s goal is to reach 15,000 apartments by the end of 2023.
