Moxy makes its mark on Taiwan

Located in the city of Taichung, Moxy’s inaugural hotel in Taiwan is already turning plenty of heads.

Jennie Toh, vice president of brand in Asia Pacific for Marriott International, said: “Across the Asia Pacific region and the world, the strong growth of our playful Moxy brand is proof that its brand philosophy resonates with millennial and next-gen guests, who seek a hotel stay at an affordable price point, saving on space and splurging on experiences. We are excited to be bringing the Moxy brand to Taiwan with the opening of Moxy Taichung, and to welcome travellers to the Moxy experience in this dynamic, future-forward city.”

A good fit for Moxy

Moxy is known for its playful profile and attracts a youthful demographic looking for fun, local activities to take part in. For its part, Moxy Taichung is situated within convenient reach of many of the city’s highlights, including Rainbow Village, Zhongshe Flower Market and the must-visit street food haven of Yizhong Street Night Market.

“Taichung is a vibrant and energetic city that celebrates openness and originality, which also happens to be the attitude for all Moxy Hotels worldwide,” said Pascal Hsiao, captain of Moxy Taichung. “We look forward to welcoming adventure-seeking travellers to experience our lively communal spaces, and spirited beverage and food programming.”
