Moxy expands German footprint

Marriott’s "lifestyle economy" Moxy brand is doubling up in Germany. After making its debut in Munich this past March, the next hotel will be in Hamburg’s City Süd district, close to the Berliner Tor.

“The City Süd is developing more and more to an attractive and interesting hotel location,” Nord Project Immobilien managing director Jürgen Paul said. The new hotel will be part of a joint project between Swiss operator SV Hotel and real estate developer GBI AG. The opening is scheduled for spring 2019.   

SV Hotel already runs five hotels under the Courtyard by Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott and Renaissance brands in Switzerland and Germany. In February of this year, the Moxy Stuttgart Airport/Messe broke ground with a planned opening for next year. In total, four new Moxy Hotels and two Residence Inn by Marriott hotels are slated to open in central downtown locations of German cities.

Last April, the Goldwert Group announced a 99-room Residence Inn and a 98-room Moxy in Hamburg’s Harburg district, with the Odyssey Hotel Group signing a 20-year contract to manage both hotels. Both projects are expected to open next spring, but the the overall project has faced long delays, so the City Süd hotel may ultimately open first.

Moxy is expected to have five new hotels open in Europe by the end of 2016, and to have at least nine by the end of next year.
