Preferred Hotels & Resorts has achieved a major milestone with its Preferred Residences collection, expanding to 100 residential-style properties with the addition of 13 new members from January 1 through October 31, 2019.
Since introducing Preferred Residences as one of its five collections in 2015, the brand has been on a strong growth trajectory, developing best-in-class transient lodging experiences that invite families, groups of friends, and business travelers to live inspired by coupling the best features of a home with the security, amenities, and services enjoyed at a luxury hotel.
“Today’s luxury travelers are seeking distinctive, residential-style lodging options, whether that is a countryside villa or a city-center apartment, that connect them to their chosen destination and its unique culture while enjoying a space that caters to their specific needs, whether it is for a special one-night celebration or an extended relocation, and we are pleased to continue catering to this growing need through Preferred Residences,” said Michelle Woodley, President, Preferred Hotels & Resorts.
“Reaching the 100th property mark demonstrates our commitment to this expanding travel segment and sets the pace for 2020 when we will continue to welcome memorable properties that range from city-center serviced apartments to countryside villas and bungalows to satisfy the demands of curious travelers seeking inspiration and comfort when their journeys take them away from home.”
