Moxy Glasgow Merchant City
Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand, has opened a new hotel today in Glasgow’s fashionable Merchant City.
Moxy has made a clear target market of redesigning the traditional economy hotel experience. Launching hotels globally at a rate of almost one every month, the hotel gives guests permission to 'brea k the rules and play on'. "We are excited to bring Moxy's playful spirit to Glasgow," said John Licence, VP Premium and Select brands at Marriott International Europe. "Thanks to its friendly, lively and dynamic social scene it makes the perfect fit for Moxy and its fun-hunter guests."
Moxy, famed for reflecting each hotel's locality in its decor, commissioned artists to create a street art mural in the communal areas. The arty theme continues throughout with spray paint cans, stencils, paint drips and stains on the walls and floors as well as the use of ship lights as a nod to the River Clyde's ship-building heritage. The hotel will have the usual eclectic funky bar in prime position that doubles as check-in. All Moxy's include a well-stocked gymnasium for gym bunnies that want to work out as well as Meet Up rooms aimed at tech-savvy travellers in the lobby with the latest technology and superfast Wi-Fi.
Moxy Hotels have really made a name for themselves in the hospitality industry as a spirited and fun place to stay where there are no rules or boundaries. The millennial-focused lifestyle brand will appeal to leisure and business travellers alike. There are 4 bedroom styles including 51 new style upgraded Moxified Peak Sleeper rooms that will boast views of the city and little extras including tea and coffee machines. The hotel will also have 9 family rooms, 71 standard queen-sized rooms and a further 50 double bedrooms.
