LOCATION
Moxy’s position between two airport terminals of one of Europe’s biggest air traffic hubs is actually not as negative as people might immediately think, as for one thing it ensures it has a constant inflow of hotel guests from Germany’s busiest airport and third busiest in Europe. The airport spreads across 5,200 acres (2,100 ha.) and is starting to breed its own hotel city, called Gateway Gardens, where Moxy is located. Its entire surface area is one huge construction site that will start to resemble a genuine hotel city in a few years’ time. In any case, it has become a very handy outlet for business guests and other travelers with layovers in the German capital of finance and fairs.

ACCESSIBILITY
Frankfurt Airport connects 293 destinations and over 65 million passengers walk through its gates each year – how’s that for airline connectivity? The airport is one of the key European air traffic intersections and also has a well-developed train and highway network to all of the major German cities. It only takes around two hours to get from the centre of the second biggest metropolitan region in Germany to Koln or Stuttgart. The hotel provides a shuttle bus and parking in the nearby Condor parking garage.

COLD APPETIZER – Architecture and Aesthetics
A quite boring and dull hotel exterior reminds you of a monotonous office building rather than a real hotel, with the only thing to strike you in the face being the pink ‘Moxy’ sign and some dark gray facade elements, a crest of every Moxy hotel. Stepping through the front door is when things really get interesting, however. The first thing you see is a hipster crossover bar which surprisingly serves as a reception, night bar and animation desk. Numerous cozy corners, furnished in a familiar Ikea style, surround the bar. Ikea actually helped with some of the design schemes here, yet a lot of the furniture is unconventional and will stand the test of time. Guests quickly adopted the plug-in space and it soon became a working space, a place for having fun and testing numerous gadgets. It seems that Moxy has made generation gaps disappear and provides a space of well-being for any age group.

WARM APPETIZER – Personnel and cuisine
The culinary offer is adapted to the “self-service rather than full-service” generation of travelers, which is available around the clock and is something that guests appreciate. Breakfast is basic albeit with some solid ingredients which, according to the staff, include some local specialties. The same goes for lunch, where two simple but delicious dishes are on offer – goulash and curry. You can then add to your own taste from the self-service offer. Guests quickly embraced the funky bar and enjoy its #TheNow concept. A lot of it has to do with the friendly and casual staff.

MAIN DISH – The hotel’s congress service
The hotel rooms are simple and functional. Guests used to hotel luxury might be compromised by the small bathroom and spartan furnishing, but you have to realize that this is a three-star hotel and, as their slogan states, they are one big bar which happens to have rooms on top.

DESSERT – Extras
Designer lounge corners that can be used as an office or space for socializing and enjoying the company of friends.

FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
The untidy surroundings of the hotel, as the whole area is still a construction site and looks quite chaotic.

TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
The casual staff that figured out what drives the millennials and makes them click. What they have accomplished is a relaxed and youthful atmosphere in the hotel.

OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY

An inexpensive room alone just doesn’t cut it, as the hotel needs to sit in a good location and guests expect mutual spaces for socializing, chatting and eating. This is something that the guys at Marriot, who came up with the Moxy brand, are well aware of and their philosophy is conveyed by the international staff, reasonable prices, and special vigorous energy. The Moxy hotel chain plans to open an additional 50 hotels in the next five years and we believe they are very much on the right track.
