Moxy Hotels, the hip and affordable hotel brand for young folk, is opening its first location this summer at Milan's Malpensa Airport (Terminal 2) in August, followed by several more European airport hotels next year. We've seen renderings of the exterior for Moxy but today, we've got a sneak peek at the interiors.
Designers David Tracz and David Shove-Brown, co-founders of the Washington DC-based Studio3877, were tapped to do the architectural and interior concepts for the brand and judging from these renderings, they've really nailed the "contemporary design" aspect for Moxy, especially in the guest rooms.
These spaces look so sleek and chic, it's hard to believe they will be at affordable rates. No, really. These are affordable rates. We found a room for 89 Euros for a standard room at Moxy Milan on September 1. And of course, that includes free WiFi.

Millennials at work. And probably a little bit of play. Or at least some tweeting.
How do you solve a problem like Millennials? Well, if you're a hotel company, the answer is "easy"--simply create an entirely new hotel brand for this up and coming, creative class of tech-toting, over-sharing, individuals. Here's a list of new hotel brands that have opened or will open in the coming years aimed at Millennials. These hotels will put a ton of emphasis on social spaces and technology (all have free WiFi) as well as design (carefully curated yet extremely functional.)
But servicing Millennials isn't limited to the hotels that are on this list. Several older brands have been rejiggering their brand standards to cater to Millennials like Courtyard By Marriott with their new Next Gen Rooms. So expect most hotels in the future to be copying some of these new offerings.
Except the old-ass, old-school luxury hotels, that is. It doesn't matter what year you were born, there comes a time in your life when you'd rather just sit in a quiet lounge sipping on some fine wine while LiteFM plays overhead.
The spin-off brand from Thompson Hotels (and parent company, Commune Hotels) should open sometime next year in 2015. Tommies guestrooms will be space-efficient “crash pads” rather than tricked-out hotel rooms with emphasis being given to the communal spaces like the Reading Rooms which will have curated programming and the casual dining experiences, like the gourmet “grab and go” marketplace. Check-in will be done via tablets but given Tommie’s “help yourself” attitude we wouldn’t be surprised if Tommie employed a self check-in process.

Last week, a tipster pointed us to a new location for AC Hotel by Marriott, the Spanish hotel brand that Marriott is now importing into the U.S. But unlike the other announced locations of Miami Beach and Chicago, this one has us a little, well, underwhelmed--AC Hotels By Marriott JFK Airport.
The 450-room airport hotel will open sometime in 2016, according to property manager, New Castle Hotels and Resorts. This hotel will actually be one of 16 AC Hotels by Marriott under contract (and totaling 3,215 rooms) around the globe. Need a refresher on what the AC By Marriott brand is all about? Go here.
Fortunately, AC won't be sticking to U.S. airports. The Dallas News reports that the developer NewcrestImage, LLC is working on bringing an AC Hotel By Marriott to historic downtown New Orleans. Now, that has us excited.
Marriott is also hard at work on its other hotel brand for Millennials--Moxy Hotels. The first one will open in Milan in August with more properties expected in six other European markets for 2015. In 10 years, Moxy hopes to have 150 contemporary designed hotels with affordable prices. Ciao Bella!
