Moxy Amsterdam Houthavens Hosts Land and Sea Opening Party

Celebrating the brand’s entrance in the Netherlands, Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand, hosted a nautical Coming Out Party on April 19 to mark the opening of Moxy Amsterdam Houthavens.

Inspired by the city’s waterways and the hotel’s dockside location in the Houthavens area, a former lumber yard and still a working dock, the Moxy crew lowered the gangplank and hosted around 400 guests.

“Amsterdam is renowned for its irreverent and playful spirit, making it an ideal destination for Moxy Hotels to make a splash,” explained John Licence, vice president, premium and select brands, Europe, Marriott International.

The party for Moxy Amsterdam Houthavens brought out the playful character of both Amsterdam and Moxy’s brand through a series of land and sea-inspired experiences, including playrooms where guests were encouraged take part in several activities.

Koen van Dijk, TV personality, Holly Mae Brood, actress, and La Fuente, world-class Dutch DJ, were among the celebrities present at the party. Also unveiled at the party was the latest edition of #BlankCanvas, Moxy’s global brand programme that calls on international emerging artists to submit works for the opportunity to debut their art at new Moxy hotels.
