June 14, 2016 - Two new Marriott International hotels will be constructed on the Danzigerkade in the Houthavens area of Amsterdam.

The hotels will be built in collaboration with, investment developer Heren2, Cycas Hospitality and Marriott International. It is expected that the hotels will open their doors in Autumn 2017. 

Both the MOXY, with its 120 rooms, and the Residence Inn, with its 60 rooms, will be a great asset for the city as a whole and the Houthavens as a blossoming hotspot. The Extended Stay character of the Residence Inn is a first for Amsterdam; guests are welcome to stay for a longer period of time.  The new hotel brand of Marriott International – MOXY, is a bold, trendy hotel concept that focusses on Generation X and Y.

“We are delighted to be working with Cycas on the development of a Moxy Hotel and a Residence Inn by Marriott in Amsterdam. Cycas has demonstrated strong hospitality expertise and professionalism and we are confident the properties will be a great success with more opportunities to come,” says Markus Lenhert of Marriott.

“We’re happy to be part of this exciting project with our first hotels in the Netherlands, especially on this spectacular location. The increasingly lively and creative area is very attractive for these hotel formulas. After London, Liverpool and Manchester we are bringing the Extended Stay hotel concept to Amsterdam,” explains Eduard Elias, Managing Partner of Cycas Hospitality.

Colliers International guided Heren2 during the transaction, who applied its international expertise in real estate services and specialisation in hotels for this project from its office in Amsterdam.

The construction of the MOXY Hotel and the Residence Inn by Marriott starts shortly. The hotels will be built on a location that overlooks ‘t IJ and will house a restaurant, a pool and a gym, to be used by hotel guests.

Replenishment on a creative spot

The Houthavens, previously an area of Amsterdam with an impressive industrial history, is located on the banks of ‘t IJ and is a state-of-the-art cultural and creative neighbourhood. A dynamic harbour atmosphere comes together with the sense of independence offered by the surrounding water, which is reflected by the creative industry hotspots. Many companies, such as Diesel, Hugo Boss, Barts, Toms, Dedato Architecten and Aegis have established offices here. The Houthaven district has become an easy to reach, future-proof and stimulating place to work as a creative hub of excellence with a beautiful view over ‘t IJ and its harbours.
