Marriott International has announced plans to build four new hotels in the Latin America and Caribbean region, with the one of them already underway in the Colombian city of Medellin.
The American hospitality giant has not disclosed the countries where the other three hotels will be built, but Caribbean Journal has reported that they will spring up in Costa Rica, Peru, and the Dominican Republic.
Considering the company’s press release, at least one of the hotels will be up and running by the end of 2020. All four will be Moxy Hotels, a new brand of hotels that Marriott introduced four years ago.
Moxy is a “playful and vibrant hotel brand for the next generation of travelers,” says the the hotel chain. Debuted in Europe in 2014, Moxy Hotels boast social zones with ample plug-ins for personal devices and free Wi-Fi.
Marriott says Moxy Hotels redesign the traditional affordable hotel experience, allowing guests to work, play and connect while surrounded by bold design and contemporary style.
“Moxy Hotels aim to surprise budget-conscious travelers with a thoughtful, spirited and fun guest experience – giving them only what they want and nothing that they don’t,” stated Marriott.
There are 30 Moxy Hotels around the world, with 90 more under construction. The number of Moxy Hotels will be doubled over the next two years, says Marriott.
To support its expansion in the Latin American region, Marriott has opened satellite offices in places in including Mexico City, Bogota, Santiago, and São Paulo.
