Marriott expands with Moxy Edinburgh Airport


Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand, has today announced the opening of its newest hotel at Scotland’s busiest airport in Edinburgh.

The 230-bedroom Moxy Edinburgh Airport brings a playful twist on the traditional airport hotel offering. The edgy, millennial-focused boutique hotel brand, which is designed for today’s savvy hyper-connected, techy global traveller, ensures a great atmosphere and fun vibe is at the forefront of the hotel’s personality.  To reflect its locality, the hotel has a book-themed interior as a nod to Edinburgh’s status as UNESCO’s City of Literature. 

“Renowned for its festivals and dynamic social scene, Edinburgh is a perfect fit for Moxy and its fun-hunter guests,” said John Licence, VP Premium and Select brands at Marriott International Europe. “This hotel will bring the brand’s playful spirit to the traditional airport hotel stay, offering guests a cocktail at check-in, spontaneous games in the lively communal spaces, and an energetic crew to bring out the fun.”

Hot on the heels of opening a Moxy in Glasgow’s Merchant Quarter in late 2018, the management group Belvar will bring its experience of the brand to operate this hotel. CEO Mads Jacobsen commented, “Since launching into the UK market back in December 2016, we continue to strengthen our footprint and are delighted to be adding the energy of the Moxy brand to Edinburgh Airport with this new property. We’re excited for guests to experience our unique approach to customer service with the focus on the bar and playful crew.”


Moxy, with design-led innovation in its DNA, is famed for reflecting each hotel’s locality in its décor.  Moxy Edinburgh Airport will be no different as its guests will find a Hanging Book Installation at the entrance, to promote Edinburgh’s reputation as a literary city.  The theme continues throughout the hotel with a Neon Book Seat alongside its Retro Games Arcade. The hotel will have the usual funky bar in prime position that doubles as check-in and is the perfect place to mingle with a hand-crafted cocktail. 


The millennial-focused lifestyle brand will appeal to leisure and business travellers alike with an Edinburgh mural in each bedroom.  There are 5 styles to choose from.  70 upgraded Moxyfied BIZ Sleeper rooms boast extra amenities including a work station, tea, coffee and snacks.  9 Moxyfied Primo Sleepers will boast Queen beds and extra room as well as 3 family rooms, 106 standard queen-sized rooms and a further 42 double bedrooms.  All Moxy’s include a 24-hour gymnasium for gym bunnies that want to work out.  Two Meet Up rooms aimed at tech-savvy travellers can be found in the lobby with the latest technology and furiously fast Wi-Fi.  The hotel features an outdoor seating area, perfect for lounging around. 

24/7 Dining #ATTHEMOXY

Moxy’s 24/7 B&F (Beverage & Food), smart and fun self-service concept gives guests access to what they want, whenever they want it. The Moxy dining area offers lots of options for food and drink including fresh juices and a coffee bar.
