The dual-brand hotel Moxy & Residence Inn Vienna City East welcomes the first guest in Vienna
The stylish boutique hotel is the first Moxy & Residence Inn in Vienna
203 rooms and 43 long-stay flats are available
On August 24, 2023, the first guest had the pleasure of checking in at Marriott International's trendy new dual-brand hotel, the first Moxy & Residence Inn in the federal capital. In the presence of representatives of the operator tristar Austria GmbH and the project developer STRABAG Real Estate (SRE), the newest member of the Marriott family was ceremoniously opened in Vienna's 3rd district.
Open to short- and long-term travellers with aspirations
The design hotel Moxy with 203 rooms and the 43 long-stay flats of Residence Inn by Marriott are located in the Neu Marx urban development area in the immediate vicinity of event halls and numerous company headquarters. With excellent public and private transport connections, the hotel is located in a vibrant area of the city and offers the ideal starting point to both the airport and the city centre.
“We are very pleased to be able to hand over this prestigious project in top quality after the quite difficult construction management during the pandemic. Our intention to accommodate the basic concept of Moxy & Residence Inn has been a complete success, and so the future guests of both hotel parts will be able to enjoy their stay in Vienna to the fullest in this great ambience," says Erol Milo, Head of Commercial Real Estate at STRABAG Real Estate
"STRABAG Real Estate has been successfully active in the field of project development for years and has extensive experience in the implementation of hotels. We are therefore particularly pleased that we were able to prove ourselves as an efficient and reliable partner in this project. From a strategic point of view, it makes sense for both tristar Austria and Marriott International to place the first hotel of a new and innovative brand for Austria in the federal capital. While many other micro-locations in Vienna are already occupied, we still see potential especially in Vienna's 3rd district. We are delighted to have created a hotel here that will be an enrichment for the district, a sustainable return on investment for the investor and, last but not least, an economic success for Marriott International and tristar Austria," says Christina Locher, Managing Director of tristar Austria.
Style meets energy efficiency
Location and facilities are not the only assets of the new dual-brand hotel, however. The accommodation, built as a low-energy house, is connected to district heating and cooling and has a photovoltaic installation on the roof. The high standard in all aspects of sustainable construction was awarded with a Pre-Check ÖGNI Gold certification.
