The Ascott has launched Citadines Connect, a line of business hotels with selected services, in a bid to widen its short-stay offerings.
Hotels under this sub-brand of Ascott’s Citadines serviced residence brand will have tech-enabled features such as mobile keys, self check-in kiosks, smart washing machines or laundromats, content streaming-enabled televisions, and Google cloud printers. Rooms within a Citadines Connect business hotel will mostly be studios ranging from 18m2 to 21m2.
Guests can also enjoy the convenience of Grab & Go counters offering F&B options and daily necessities, common pantry areas, meeting pods, as well as 24/7 gymnasiums. Guests are also welcome to relax at the Refresh and Recharge spaces that come complete with private napping pods with USB charging points, lockers and shower rooms.
The first two properties to debut under the Citadines Connect brand are the Citadines Connect Sydney Airport and Citadines Connect Fifth Avenue New York.
