Marriott International has set plans with hotel developer and owner GC Rieber Eiendom to open Norway's second Moxy Hotel in May 2020.
Danish hotel operator Core Hospitality, a sister company to Zleep Hotels, will operate the 190-room Moxy Bergen. GC Rieber Eiendom will develop the property, in the center of Bergen, near the fjords of Norway.
The new hotel will join the Moxy Oslo X, which opened near Oslo Airport in summer 2016 as the first Marriott-branded hotel in the country. The property will also join the Moxy portfolio of 20 existing properties in Europe. It is the latest addition to the brand's pipeline of more than 50 signed hotel projects in the region, which are scheduled to open by the end of 2020.
As part of the operator's expansion in the Nordics, the Moxy Bergen will be Core Hospitality's second Moxy property. Core will operate Copenhagen's Moxy hotel once the property opens in 2019. The group also recently took over operations of the Hotel Marina north of Copenhagen.
This latest Moxy hotel follows the signing of a new Moxy in the Roissypole Ouest zone within the Charles de Gaulle Airport complex in France. Paris-based airport operator Groupe ADP and Vastint Hospitality Group are partnering to develop the 292-room hotel, which is scheduled to open in spring 2019. The upcoming Moxy will share the airport zone with another 3,181 guestrooms currently operating, including a Holiday Inn Express, along with a new Innside by Meliá hotel opening in early 2019.
