Marriott International will open five Moxy Hotels in key European cities in 2016, in partnership with Vastint Hospitality as the owner and developer, and Nordic Hospitality as franchise partner. 

In Germany, the 252-room Moxy Munich Airport, five minutes from the main terminal, is set to debut this month; the 176-room Moxy Eschborn, 10 minutes from downtown Frankfurt and 15 minutes from Frankfurt Airport, will open in July; and the 210-room Moxy Berlin Ostbahnhof, near the capital city's main train station, will debut in October. In Norway, the 276-room Moxy Oslo Exporama at the Exporama exhibition and conference center will open in November, and in the U.K., the 200-room Moxy Aberdeen (Scotland) Airport will debut in December. 

Amy McPherson, president and managing director of Marriott International, Europe, said: "This is an exciting and pivotal moment for the Moxy brand as we move into the second phase of development with five new hotel openings this year and nine more expected in 2017."
