Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand has announced that it has opened its latest site – Moxy Milton Keynes.
The 210-bedroom hotel is conveniently located just a few miles away from Silverstone Racing Circuit, with the hotel having been created with a motor-racing theme with a race track designed around the walls, a chandelier in the lobby in the shape of a Formula One track and stylised with “racing graffiti and memorabilia”.
The hotel’s lobby will also offer games and activities for its guests as well as the high-tech ‘Now’ communal hang-out areas with “chill-out zones” for co-working and casual meetings.
Moxy revealed the bedrooms come equipped with the “latest technology” and Wi-Fi. The hotel also has a high-tech meeting room, a 24-hour fitness centre for workouts and benefits from onsite parking for guests.
The hotel has also appointed Leanne Roberst as captain, Moxy Hotels’ take on a general manager. Originally from Cambridgeshire, Roberts has been in the hospitality industry since the age of 17.
She said: “I know Milton Keynes well and Moxy’s playful spirit and unconventional hotel experience will bring something completely new to the area that will appeal to guests, locals and residents at our location in The Hub.
“I’m especially proud of the team that have been brought on board, thanks to their wide ranging skill sets that will bring an approachable and fun guest experience.”
Donovan Sumner, regional director of Operations UK and Italy for Hotel Co. 51, the operating company for Moxy Milton Keynes, added: “We are really excited to bring Moxy to this town utilising Leanne’s local knowledge and experience to lead this stand out opening.
“The Hub is a great location and as always, we continue to push the boundaries of what guests expect. We always put a lot of thought into each hotel’s unique design theme, the technology available for guests as well as getting a great night’s sleep. As we carry on opening more hotels, it’s evident that we’ve got the formula right.”
