In 2020, Marriott’s millennial-focused Moxy Hotels will make its debut in the Caribbean and Latin America region. 

Four Moxy Hotels projects have been approved for the Caribbean, Central America and South America, with the 165-room Moxy in Medellín, Colombia, signed just last week.  

The Moxy Hotels brand debuted in Europe in 2014 and has since grown to include nearly 30 operating hotels and more than 90 properties in its worldwide development pipeline. Worldwide, Moxy Hotels is on pace to double its current portfolio by 2020.
