Irish aparthotel operator Staycity will open a Wilde aparthotel in London's Paddington area next month as part of a £203 million complex.
Staycity stated, "Leading aparthotel operator Staycity is set to open its largest Wilde Aparthotel by Staycity to date, part of a prestigious development in London's Paddington.
"The premium brand property, scheduled to open on 14th December, offers 249 design-led studios and one-bed apartments with bar, breakfast station, well-equipped gym, guest laundry and spacious guest lounge. The property is set in a £203m development complex, part of the ongoing transformation of the area as an office and leisure location. The site boasts close proximity to Heathrow Airport, with two royal parks and the picturesque Little Venice within walking distance.
"Atul Prakash, formerly general manager of Staycity's first Wilde in Covent Garden, has been appointed general manager of the new property, where he will manage a team of up to 40 staff. 'We will be focussing heavily on the guest journey and making Wilde the best place to stay as well as delivering various guest activities including wellness awareness and working closely with the local business community,' he said.
Staycity's CEO and co-founder, Tom Walsh, said, 'We are particularly pleased that our Wilde Aparthotels brand is part of this impressive build and are proud to have been joint venture developers on the project. London plays a pivotal part in our ongoing European expansion and Paddington, together with our properties in Aldgate, Covent Garden, Deptford, Greenwich and Heathrow, give Staycity a strong footing across the city demonstrating its strategic importance as one of Europe’s key destinations for leisure and corporate travellers.'"
Staycity added, "Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity, London, Paddington follows the opening last month of a 156-apartment Wilde in London's Aldgate. In June the company opened a Staycity Aparthotel in Manchester's Northern Quarter and new locations opened earlier in the year in Heidelberg, Germany and the French city of Bordeaux. Next year a further Wilde will open in Manchester's St Peter's Square and additional Staycity Aparthotel properties in Ireland, Germany and France."
