Created in partnership with Nordic Hospitality and with Inter Hospitality Holding as the owner and developer of the first six properties, Moxy Hotels is one of the newest and most exciting brands within the Marriott International global portfolio. Following extensive research on the rapidly emerging millennial traveller and a response to their unique needs, each hotel will be designed with the latest in technology so guests can connect amidst inviting social spaces with self-sufficient service elements.
The design and colour palette will feature calming, neutral tones reminiscent of rich brown leather, combined with natural materials to evoke an organic, comfortable and restorative feel. Each room will feature a floor to ceiling signature "art wall" that is hand selected to reflect the unique destination. Guestrooms will be functional and well-designed, with upscale bath amenities, large flat screen televisions and built-in USB ports conveniently located throughout the room.
Adaptable public spaces will invite guests to relax and socialise, offering healthy continental breakfast options each morning and a bar/lounge atmosphere in the evening featuring wines by the glass and local beer. 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.

However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
