Armstrong replace washers at London’s Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel

Commercial laundry washers in Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel

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.

What our clients say...

  • “Our machines have come from several suppliers – there is a big difference in the standards of support we receive and Armstrong gets 10 out of 10 – their service has been consistently excellent over several years and when you’re as busy as we are, that’s very important.”

    Jacqui Butler

  • “It’s important to get the right equipment for the job, too small and it won’t do it properly, too big and you are wasting money, energy and space. It is also important to deal with a company you trust to supply reliable equipment and give you the support you need. As expected, the installation went smoothly, we have never had the slightest problem and I know Armstrong will deal with it if we do.”

    Colin Farquharson, St Ermin’s Hotel
