The first Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy almost complete

One year after announcing plans to expand its presence into premium and luxury apartment-style accommodations, Marriott International has begun taking reservations for its first Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy property. Casa Costera, Isla Verde, Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy in San Juan, Puerto Rico will open its doors in a few weeks.

Located in the Isla Verde neighborhood of San Juan, the 107-unit property has a rooftop pool with views of the sea and mountains and is steps from the beach.

Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy sits within the premium and luxury segments. It is distinguished from Marriott’s existing extended-stay brands with distinctly designed properties incorporating sophisticated design and décor elements that reflect the local neighborhood for independent travelers seeking more space and residential amenities.

“Consumers looking for longer term accommodations, whether traveling solo or as a family, are increasingly blending work and leisure trips and seeking out the residential amenities that Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy offers,” Brian Povinelli, SVP, global head of marketing and brand, said in a statement. “Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy complements our extraordinary hotel brands and should help increase guest loyalty for our entire global portfolio of nearly 8,700 hotels.”

The typical Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy unit has private bedrooms, a separate living room, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and a 24-hour gym. Designed for a truly independent stay, Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy does not provide traditional hotel services such as food and beverage, meeting spaces or daily housekeeping.

Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy is an adaptable brand that offers residential and hotel developers the option to convert an existing apartment-style building, as with the San Juan property, pursue a new build, or be part of a multi-use building in which the Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy component would have its own dedicated lobby, services and amenities.
