The Park & Suites Group, a subsidiary of M Finance, founded 14 years ago, has become a key player in the management of aparthotels.

The new group, formed by the merger of Park & Suites and Appart’City on April 4, 2014, is positioned as the French leader in urban aparthotels. With 116 establishments, or 13,567 apartments, the Group provides a definite hexagonal mesh and offers a range of accommodation ranging from 2 to 4 stars.

The new entity will meet the increasingly strong demand of a business-oriented clientele looking for a real living space to feel “at home” or for tourists who want to spend a few days in town or close to their families. The aparthotel is ideal for stays of one to several nights. With volume discounts based on length of stay and the services included or as individual options, the apart-hotel offers independence and freedom.
