The new millennial-focused Moxy property is scheduled to open in the Danish capital next March.
Marriott International has released further details about its “fun and youthful” Moxy property scheduled to open in Copenhagen next year. It is on course to open on Scandiagade, south of the city centre, with 228 rooms in March 2019.
In line with the millennial-focused brand, it will have a “combination of bold design and affordable style where communal engagement is at the centre of the experience”, Marriott says.
The Moxy experience begins with a complimentary Got Moxy cocktail on arrival in the “bright and buzzing” lobby. The whole of the ground floor is designed so that it “invites guests to relax, meet up with friends and work in fun environments”.
All of the rooms are fitted with sound-reducing walls, 42″ LCD flat-screen televisions, free wi-fi, USB ports and “comfortable bedding”, while the room design is “functional, flexible and uncluttered with simple, thoughtful touches”.
Moxy was established in 2014 in a deal between Marriott International and Vastint Hospitality, an IKEA-owned property investment company. While Marriott developed the brand, Vastint bought the properties, developing building processes similar to IKEA’s flatpack technology.
The new hotel operator Core Hospitality – established only towards the end of 2017 as a sister company to Danish economy brand Zleep Hotels – will run the Danish capital’s Moxy.
Core has already acquired the operations of Hotel Marina, north of Copenhagen, establishing itself, it says, as “a strong operator in the Nordics”.
“Moxy Copenhagen is our first Moxy hotel, and it finally looks like we will be introducing the brand to the market. It’s going to be a great addition to the Copenhagen hotel market with its unique and exciting concept. Moxy will be a big boost for Core Hospitality and Zleep Hotels as well,” says Peter Haaber, chief executive of Core Hospitality and Zleep Hotels.
