Marriott International’s lifestyle brand Moxy Hotels, which first launched in Europe in fashion forward Milan last September, is entering the U.S. market in a bold way, with eight identified projects slated for major metropolitan locations, including New York City (Chelsea, Mid-town and Lower Manhattan), San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans and Chicago.
After opening first hotel in Milan, Italy, more hotels are set to open across Europe in Germany (Munich, Frankfurt and Berlin); Denmark (Copenhagen); and the United Kingdom (London) over the next two years.
Moxy’s first New York property will be created by the world-renowned design firm Yabu Pushelberg.
Moxy’s inviting lobbies are crafted to be highly social spaces with a high-energy lounge, 24/7 self-service grab and go, ample plug-ins for personal devices, free and furiously-fast Wi-Fi, and the Moxy Digital Guestbook for streaming videos and pictures via Instagram. Each hotel is also equipped with a library and plug-in zones that invite a quiet read or a brief web browse. Guest rooms will offer keyless entry, screen-casting and motion-sensor lighting.
Moxy is the latest addition in a growing luxury and lifestyle brand portfolio at Marriott International. Each brand is positioned to serve today’s savvy traveler by delivering high design and technology forward experiences at every price point.
