Moxy Hotels has signed a new hotel in Perth, marking the brand’s second signing in Australia this year following the earlier announcement of Moxy Melbourne South Yarra.
The A$35 million (US$24.5 million) property, set to begin construction in October this year, will be located at 195 Hay Street, within walking distance of bars and restaurants in the city’s CBD and near attractions like the WACA Ground, Swan River and Heirisson Island.
When complete, Moxy Perth will feature 150 rooms alongside facilities such as a fitness centre, a communal space, the Moxy Bar which doubles as the hotel’s check-in where guests receive a complimentary cocktail upon arrival; as well as a 24/7 self-service grab-and-go concept with items such as cereals and noodles. Plug in points and free Wi-Fi will also be available throughout the hotel.
Moxy Perth will take Marriott International’s presence in Perth to beyond 1,200 hotel rooms, adding to the hospitality giant’s growing portfolio of select service brands options in the Western Australia capital, according to Paul Foskey, chief of development Asia-Pacific Marriott International.
The “playful, experiential” brand now has 44 hotels around the globe, with another 100 in the pipeline. Three Moxys are currently open in Asia-Pacific, including Tokyo, Osaka and Bandung.
