Marriott brand Moxy opened its third location in the Netherlands on June 2, operated by Hotel Co 51 with an investment from Vastint Hospitality.
The hotel is in the Rotsoord district, a business park that has evolved into a place of cultural and creative living, work and dining. The hotel is therefore close to the historic center of Utrecht and on the edge of the Vaartsche Rijn canal. The Moxy hotel also benefits from a very good accessibility to the new Utrecht Vaartsche Rijn train station, inaugurated in August 2016, and its 200-space car park.
The property has 172 rooms, including 9 family rooms accessible to disabled périple. They conform to the Moxy concept: luxurious but affordable rooms that meet the needs of millennials. Their decoration is both elegant and basic: dark with Moxy pink details.
The decoration of the hotel is characterized by the presence of several local elements: a huge chair by Utrecht designer Gerrit Rietveld adorns the lobby. This space also hosts chairs from the Pastoe factory, which is near the hotel, as well as a table made from an old tree that once stood in the city. The hallway leading to the elevators and the gym also hosts a unique work of art: a large pen drawing of Utrecht on the wall. The ground floor of the hotel hosts co-living areas open to outside customers, a restaurant area, a bar and a 100-seat terrace along the canal. A meeting room, a fitness room and a bicycle rental service are also available to customers.
Hotel Moxy welcomed its first customers on Thursday, June 3 and aims to reach a fill level of 50% by next month.
