The Moxy Frankfurt Airport hotel is being ceremonially inaugurated today in Frankfurt’s new Gateway Gardens district, at Amelia-Mary-Earhart-Strasse. From the boutique hotel, the terminals of Frankfurt Airport can be reached in a few minutes, either on foot or with a shuttle bus.
On a floor space of around 11,700 square metres, the hotel offers 305 rooms plus 51 underground parking slots. Vastint Hospitality and Marriott International have thus built in Gateway Gardens the biggest hotel so far for the Moxy brand in Germany. The franchisee is the Norwegian hotel management and development company Belvar.
“With its position right in the heart of Europe and its direct proximity to one of Europe’s largest airports, Gateway Gardens proved crucially persuasive to Vastint and Marriott as the location for the new Moxy Frankfurt Airport Hotel,” explains Manfred Dittrich, Managing Director of the project development company OFB Projektentwicklung GmbH. “The district’s dynamism, and its urban flair, fit in ideally with Moxy’s concept. With the future Gateway Gardens rapid transit station nearby, links to Frankfurt’s inner city (about eight minutes to the main station and 15 minutes to ECB) and the airport (2 minutes to Terminal 1) will be just perfect,” he adds.
Rajko Mink, Director of Operations at Belvar, explains: “Our Moxy lifestyle hotel brand, with its modern-day image, attracts both young and young-at-heart travellers who want meaningful flexibility. We offer everything our guests need in this respect: from free-ofcharge WLAN to a lobby designed for shared working. This means we fit in superbly with the campus character of Gateway Gardens. That and the good links to the airport and the city of Frankfurt itself will be highly appreciated by our guests.”
Gateway Gardens, with 700,000 square meters of planned gross floor space on an area of 35 hectares, is one of the largest district development projects in Germany. Frankfurt’s new district is located in the middle of the major transportation axes: conveniently adjacent to the international Frankfurt Rhine-Main Airport, to Germany’s largest airport railway station, and the nation’s largest autobahn intersection. From 2019, moreover, Gateway Gardens will have its own rapid transit station.
Belvar is a Norwegian hotel management and development company operating Marriott hotels under franchise agreement. The company is currently operating hotels in The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Poland and UK. The central office is located in Amsterdam to support development and operations of the new Moxy Hotels. The company´s pipeline includes hotels in Germany, UK, and Norway. For more information
