Marriott to debut Moxy in the UK in 2016 in Aberdeen


Marriott’s budget boutique hotel brand, Moxy, is to open five new properties across Europe in 2016, including a debut hotel in Aberdeen before the end of the year.

The new hotels will see the rollout of the brand across key European cities including Munich, Berlin, Oslo alongside Aberdeen Airport, and follows on from the success of Moxy since its launch in Italy in September 2014.

In addition to the five European openings, there will be two new openings in the US in Tempe, Arizona in March 2016 and New Orleans, Louisiana in April 2016.

The brand expects to offer a portfolio of nearly 150 hotels around the world within the next ten years.

Amy McPherson, president and managing director of Marriott International, Europe, said: “This is an exciting and pivotal moment for the Moxy brand as we move into the second phase of development with five new hotel openings this year and nine more expected in 2017. This is just the beginning of a sensational journey for Moxy in Europe.”

In partnership with Vastint Hospitality as the owner and developer and franchise partner, Nordic Hospitality, the five new Moxy hotels are expected to open by year-end 2016.

Moxy Aberdeen Airport will consist of 200 bedrooms and be located seven minutes from the main terminal. It is expected to open in December 2016 and will be the fifth and final Moxy property to launch this year.
