Marriott International will start construction of a new hotel development under the Moxy badge in Auckland at the start of 2021.
Moxy Auckland is expected to be Marriott International’s second hotel in Auckland when it opens in January 2023, following the Four Points by Sheraton Auckland.
“This latest signing follows Marriott International’s announcement of new-build Moxy projects in Melbourne, Perth, and Queenstown in the last year, making Moxy our fastest growing brand in the Australia Pacific region,” said Richard Crawford, senior director of hotel development, Australia, NZ & Pacific.
Moxy Auckland will offer 185 guest rooms and a meeting room.
“Moxy’s global footprint has surged to 71 distinctive hotels, from just a dozen hotels three years ago,” said Marriott International’s area vice president Sean Hunt.
“We are thrilled to introduce the Moxy name to Auckland, which is one of the highest priority destinations in the context of our assertive growth plans in the Pacific region.”
