This past spring Marriott International announced its Modular Construction Initiative to use prefabricated bathrooms or guestrooms in 50 hotels in 2017, accounting for more than 10 percent of the company’s “Select Brand” developments in North America for the year. The initiative continues strongly with the recent opening of the Marriott Residence Inn Long Island East End in Riverhead, New York.
To speed development of the 131-room extended stay property on the eastern end of Long Island, Lee Browning, Sr., CEO of Browning Hotel Properties chose Oldcastle SurePods pre-fabricated bathroom pods.
In addition to helping the hotel get “heads on beds” sooner to start producing revenue, the modular bathrooms will provide hotel guests a first-rate experience. As the Marriott Residence Inn brand’s tagline is, “It’s not a room, it’s a Residence,” attention to detail is crucial for creating a home-like environment. Nowhere is this truer than the bathrooms, which are a key amenity for the extended stay Marriott Residence Inns. The SurePods bathrooms, built in our Florida factory, were finished to the brand’s exacting standards for quality and style of finish, and for long-term durability.
We value our partnership with Marriott International and its Marriott Residence Inn division. Since 2006 Oldcastle SurePods has built more than 2,000 modular bathrooms for Marriott-branded hospitality properties.
