Two properties, one in Sydney and one in New York, will debut under The Ascott Limited’s new Citadines Connect brand, a line of select-service targeting business travelers. This will be a sub brand of Ascott’s Citadines serviced residence brand. Ascott is owned by CapitaLand.
Citadines Connect hotels will be surrounded by technology, including mobile keys, self check-in kiosks, smart washing machines or laundromats, content streaming-enabled televisions and Google cloud printers. Properties will also feature grab ‘n go counters and 24-hour fitness centers. “Refresh and Recharge” spaces will showcase private napping pods with USB charging points, lockers and shower rooms.
Ascott also plans to rebrand its properties such as Temple Bar Hotel Dublin in Ireland and The Domain Hotel Sunnyvale in Silicon Valley, California, to the new brand.
