London’s 5-star Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel is both luxurious and superbly located within easy distance of Oxford Street, Green Park and Hyde Park. It has a total of 237 rooms many of which have beautiful views over the famous Grosvenor Square. While all the bed linen and table linen is sent out for laundering, a substantial in-house laundry handles all the towels and bathrobes. Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems, who have been suppliers to the hotel for a long time, recently replaced the washers with three Primus FS55 washers, each of which has a capacity of 55kg.
The laundry is staffed full time, seven days a week. Kevin Sims, director of engineering at the hotel, said, “You’d be surprised how much laundry a hotel of this size creates – even though we’re only doing the terry work in-house. Needless to say, for a hotel of our reputation, the quality of the wash is paramount. We are very pleased with the new washers, as we have been with Armstrong’s previous machines, and with their service.”
The Primus FS55 is a free standing high-spin machine featuring a large door opening for easy loading and unloading, full microprocessor control and PowerWash® perforated lifting ribs giving increased mechanical action and lower water consumption. The 33kg and 40kg machines are available in the same range.
