Marriott plans Moxy Hotels expansion in Asia with two Japan properties

Moxy Hotels has revealed it will open two new properties in Japan.

Moxy Tokyo Kinshicho and Moxy Osaka Honmachi are both set to open in late 2017, further expanding the brand’s presence in Asia Pacific.

The will follow the opening of the region’s first Moxy in Bandung, Indonesia, which is slated for quarter three of this year.

“The next generation of travellers craves adventure, and until now affordable hotel options lacked personality and verve,” said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, brand and marketing, Marriott International Asia Pacific.

“We are excited to introduce Asia to the Moxy brand, which offers a vibrant and fun hotel experience at a great price.”

Moxy Tokyo Kinshicho, a modern hotel with an industrial chic design, will open in the heart of historic Kinshicho in Tokyo.

A short walk from Kinshicho Station, one of Tokyo’s busiest train stations, guests will be able to easily navigate their way to some of the capital’s major tourist attractions such as Asakusa, Tokyo Sky Tree and Tokyo Disneyland, as well as Haneda and Narita airports.

Owned by Goldman Sachs and managed by Tokyo-based commercial real estate developer Pacifica Capital KK, the hotel is a conversion from a stand-alone office building, and will feature 205 bedrooms.

“Moxy is for the curious and adventurous, and we’re confident this brand will be a welcome addition to Japan’s lodging offering,” said Seth Sulkin president, Pacifica Capital KK.

“As Japan’s tourism and hospitality industry continues to develop and grow, Moxy is the ideal boutique hotel for the region. Like Japan, Moxy is a fun and spirited brand that offers guest something different with each stay.”

Centrally located in Japan is Moxy Osaka Honmachi, which promises an unexpected design with 155 high-tech, cosy bedrooms.

A short distance to Honmachi Station, one of the most prominent stations in Osaka, the action – whether shopping around the Namba district, or indulging in the Shinsaibashi food and nightlife district – is all just a hop away.

Owned by Goldman Sachs and managed by EGW Asset Management Inc., Moxy Osaka will also be an edgy conversion from a stand-alone office building.

Moxy Hotels first launched with the opening of the Moxy Milan in September 2014, and currently operates nine additional hotels in New Orleans, Tempe, Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Vienna, and the UK.
