Marriott International’s Moxy Hotels, which launched in Milan in 2014, is slated to expand into more than 40 new European destinations within the next three years. Marriott has deals in place to add more than 50 hotels to Moxy’s pipeline, and the properties are expected to open from now into the end of 2020. 

The brand will add more properties in Germany, the UK and Scandinavia while it will enter into key markets in Europe, including France, Portugal, and The Netherlands. 


Germany’s market already has a lineup of nine operating Moxy hotels. However, that number is set to more than double with another sixteen properties slated to open by the end of 2019 in key cities, including Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg and Düsseldorf.
