The world’s biggest hotel company has signed a contract to open a new Moxy hotel in Mexico City, with work set to begin late next year.
The 120-room hotel will be set in Mexico City’s hip Paseo de la Reforma; it’s pegged to open in 2022, according to the company.
“Moxy is a great fit for Mexico City, a destination known for its vibrancy, youthful energy, and dynamic arts culture and we see significant potential for this brand throughout Mexico and Latin America,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, Chief Development Officer, Marriott International in the Caribbean and Latin America. “We are pleased to collaborate with Grupo Elipse and look forward to working with them on this milestone project.”
Amenities at the hotel will range from a rooftop bar to “buzzing public spaces,” part of an energetic, millennial-focused design profile for the hotel brand.
“We are thrilled to bring the Moxy brand to Mexico and provide a new go-to location for next-Gen travelers,” said Ricardo Czukerberg, of Grupo Elipse. “It’s exciting working with Marriott International, and drawing on the expertise of this global travel powerhouse gives us high confidence in the project’s success.”
Marriott has already opened 50 Moxy-branded hotels around the world; this will be its first in the wider Caribbean-Mexico region.
