Moxy Hotels looks to future in Nordics, Germany

Marriott: 150 Moxy hotels and 25,000 rooms expected by 2020
Marriott International has announced plans to open 2,700 hotel rooms under its new Moxy brand in key cities throughout Europe by the end of 2016. With a goal of 150 Moxy hotels and 25,000 rooms by 2020, the company expects to sign at least 4,200 rooms this year alone.
The announcement follows the debut of the Moxy Milan Malpensa in Italy last September and news that the brand is entering the US market with eight properties in major cities including three in New York City and others in San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans and Chicago.
Moxy Copenhagen, which will be located close to Scandiagade which has seen much development in recent years for offices, retail and residential developments, is due in summer 2016. Also scheduled to open in summer 2016 is the Moxy Oslo Exporama, next to one of the biggest exhibition grounds between Oslo and Oslo Airport.
Other Moxy hotels expected to open by the end of next year include five in Germany (Moxy Munich Airport, winter 2015; Moxy Berlin Ostbahnhof, early 2016; Moxy Eschborn, early 2016; Moxy Frankfurt Gateway Gardens, summer 2016; and Moxy Essen, winter 2016) and four in the UK (Moxy Aberdeen Airport, mid-2016; Moxy London Stratford, summer 2016; Moxy London Royal Docks, autumn 2016; and Moxy London Heathrow Airport, winter 2016)
Defined by attitude rather than affordability, Moxy Hotels “redesigns the traditional economy hotel experience, allowing guests to work, play, connect and enjoy whilst surrounded by bold design and contemporary style,” Marriott says. “With its vibrant lobby spaces, 24/7 self-service grab and go, ample plug-ins for personal devices and free Wi-Fi, Moxy aims to surprise budget-conscious travellers with a thoughtful, spirited and fun guest experience.”
