Moxy Hotels plans to open five additional properties in mainland China in the next year.
Moxy Shanghai Hongqiao CBD (Central Business District) has officially opened its doors today, debuting the Moxy Hotels brand in mainland China.
The new 158-room hotel is conveniently located right next to one of the most important transportation hubs in China, which brings together the high-speed rail, an international airport and local metro lines.
Lidoway, a 15-minute drive from the hotel, is a bustling Gen-Z destination with an array of trendy lifestyle shops, restaurants and bars.
With the comprehensive control of the domestic epidemic, active development of vaccination work, the innovation of tourism products, and the rising demand for travel, domestic market starts to fully recover. There is no better time for Moxy's expansion.
Moxy Hotels plans to open five additional properties in mainland China in the next year, marking strong anticipated growth in a region where next-gen travelers play an essential role in the China tourism market. Following the opening of Moxy Shanghai Hongqiao CBD, a vibrant new social scene is set to be introduced at Moxy Shanghai Xuhui, which is slated to open in the cosmopolitan city later this summer. Additional new Moxy Hotels are slated to open in Nanjing, Shenzhen and Xi’an within the next twelve months.
“We’re thrilled to be the first Moxy hotel in mainland China in the electrified metropolitan of Shanghai, and to show this city just how invigorating and fun a hotel stay really can be,” said Aleen Wan, Captain of the Moxy Shanghai Hongqiao CBD. “Different from anything else in this area, our spirited Crew members are excited to connect with travelers in a playful way over games and cocktails in our design-driven social areas, allowing travelers to blend work and play – all at an approachable price point.”
“The opening marks the entry of Marriott Bonvoy’s 24th brand into mainland China – a testament to our focus on bringing a diversified portfolio for different types of travelers to China,” said Henry Lee, President, Greater China, Marriott International. “We currently operate more than 50 hotels in Shanghai and look forward to expanding our portfolio further across China in order to offer distinctive and personalized experiences for travelers."
Moxy offers a playful hotel experience for the young at heart. With more than 70 properties open across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, Moxy boldly breaks the rules of a conventional hotel stay across the globe. The nontraditional experience starts with check-in at Bar Moxy and comes to life throughout its social public spaces, like the Lounge and Library, and the small but smart bedrooms.
