Marriott to build new Moxy Auckland Hotel


Marriott International has announced that it will start construction of a new hotel development in Auckland from January 2021.

When it opens in January 2023, Moxy Auckland is expected to be Marriott International’s second hotel in Auckland.  It will be joining the Four Points by Sheraton Auckland.

The new hotel will also increase the presence of the Moxy brand in Australia and New Zealand. Over the last year, Marriott has announced Moxy developments in Melbourne, Perth, and Queenstown.

The new hotel will be located in the “Learning Quarter” in central Auckland. As such, it will be within a kilometre of the University of Auckland, Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland Hospital, and Auckland Domain. Given its location, guests will be within walking distance of top CBD sites.

Not taking itself too seriously, Moxy offers a playful new approach to an affordable hotel stay. The 185 guest rooms are cleverly designed to maximize space and allow guests the flexibility to adapt the room to their needs. The hotel will also feature a fitness center, meeting room, and a communal table in the lobby for guests to plug into.

A fully glazed atrium and central core will create a sense of welcome with the hotel’s lively communal spaces, including the Moxy kitchen and bar, the ideal spot for visitors and guests to dine and socialise. An inner courtyard will provide a tranquil escape for both guests and passers-by from the busy surrounding streetscapes of city living and working.

“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. Moxy Auckland will bring the play on spirit to the city, where we are confident there is a strong appetite for new bespoke lifestyle hotels that reflect the diversity and energy of the city.”
