Marriott Bonvoy’s Experiential Hotel Brand Celebrates Local Tourism
London – July 2021: Moxy Hotels, Marriott Bonvoy’s experiential hotel brand for the young and young-at-heart, has launched Moxy Hotels’ Great British Road Trip – a celebration of domestic tourism, encouraging guests to explore closer to home this summer. The playfully curated collection of five routes go coast to coast, covering 12 of the UK’s most vibrant spots for hospitality, culture, and sightseeing, and provide Moxy’s tips to discover the best of each destination, from street art tours to gin distilleries and brewery visits.
The campaign comes as Moxy prepares to debut five new hotels in the UK by 2023, bringing their UK portfolio to 18 hotels, with properties slated to open in Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow SEC, Leeds and Newcastle. The upcoming openings add to Moxy’s 13-strong portfolio across the UK, including the brand new Moxy Milton Keynes, which opened this month.
Moxy Hotels offer the perfect base for exploring, giving guests everything they want and nothing they don’t. They combine bold, instagrammable design and affordable style, with fun social spaces at the centre of the hotel experience. Guests are welcomed with check-ins at the bar and a complimentary cocktail. With tech-enabled rooms and vibrant, modern service, Moxy’s inclusive and playful spirit is reflected with a local twist across the UK portfolio.
Moxy’s Great British Road Trip routes have between three and seven stops per trip, including culture hot spots such as Chester, York, Southampton and Edinburgh. The dedicated website gives full details on the locations featured, along with Moxy city guides on the best things to see, eat and do at each location, Moxy style. Moxy has curated a range of downloads to make the journey as fun as the destination itself, with playlists, car games, conversation starters and suggested stop off points for those ‘Instagram moments’ along the way.
Trips are fully flexible so guests can stay as little or as long as they choose in each destination, with a minimum of three nights recommended. The routes are:
- The Scottish Special – Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen
- The Northern Soul – Chester, York, Edinburgh
- The Rainbow Route – Glasgow, Birmingham, London
- The BIG ONE – Southampton, Birmingham, Chester, York, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen
- Choo Choo (alternative train journey) – London, York, Edinburgh, Glasgow
“This is an exciting time of expansion for Moxy Hotels as we prepare to open five new properties within the next two years in the UK, a reflection of the growing demand for the playful, stylish and affordable hotel experience that Moxy offers. The UK is a key market for Moxy, the fun spirit of our hotels is something that resonates very well with the copious offerings and thriving destinations the Country offers” explained Sandra Schulze-Potgieter, Vice President, Premium & Select Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International. “The Moxy Great British Road Trip campaign is our way of celebrating and bringing together vibrant destinations, original experiences and stylish, approachable hotels at a time when we are all looking a little closer to home for our next adventure.”
