Vastint Hospitality has today completed the first Moxy Hotel in London, and handed it over to Belvar, a franchisee of Marriott International, who will open the hotel on 1st March. This is Vastint’s sixth Moxy Hotel in Europe and its second in the UK, having completed Moxy Aberdeen Airport at the end of last year.
Moxy London Excel offers 164 rooms with 42 parking spaces and is located at the Royal Docks, less than 300 metres from Excel – London’s largest indoor exhibition and conference centre – and 800 metres from London City Airport.
From the nearby Royal Albert DLR station, it takes five minutes to Canary Wharf and 15 minutes to the City of London. Using the Emirates Airline Cable Car, the O2 – the world’s highest grossing music venue – is also easily accessible.
Two other Moxy Hotels in London will be delivered in the coming months. In the summer Vastint will complete a 294-room Moxy Hotel in Stratford, opposite Stratford Centre and 100 metres north of the main footbridge leading into the Westfield Stratford City regional shopping centre. Towards the end of the year Vastint will complete a 437-room Moxy Hotel at Heathrow Airport.
This year Vastint Hospitality intends to start on-site construction of hotels in the UK in the city centres of Glasgow (180 rooms), Bristol (206 rooms), York (119 rooms) and Southampton (209 rooms) and at Edinburgh Airport (230 rooms).
