Each Moxy Hotel will offer "Plug and Meet" meeting spaces throughout the public space, designed with stylish ergonomic seating, writing walls and large television screens for presentation projection. The lobby space will also include state-of-the art computers available to guests and a 24/7 market for snacks on the go.
In keeping with Marriott International's commitment to sustainability, each Moxy Hotel is expected to meet the requirements for LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Moxy Hotels will be part of Marriott Rewards, Marriott International's award-winning global guest loyalty program which allows more than 45 million members to earn points at nearly 3,800 hotels in 71 countries worldwide.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts.
