Serviced apartment specialist SACO has unveiled its new aparthotel brand, Locke.
SACO said Locke will combine the best aspects of boutique hotels and serviced apartments to deliver “an enhanced new concept that meets the needs of today’s business traveler”.
The first Locke property will open on London’s Leman Street in Aldgate in October 2016, with further properties to open across the UK and Europe from 2017 onwards.
Consisting of a total of 168 apartments, divided into 105 studios and 63 one-bedroom suites, Leman Locke will also offer guests two sky meeting rooms, a gym, two bars, all-day dining and an outdoor lounge area, and free Wi-Fi.
Stephen Hanton, CEO, SACO, said: “The serviced apartment sector is the fastest growing part of the hospitality industry and we have developed Locke to offer today’s travellers the best of a design-led hotel experience with at-home independent living.
“SACO’s mission is to reshape hospitality, and we are continuing to develop innovative concepts, using extensive research, and feedback and involvement from thousands of our customers.”
