New Design-Driven Hotel for Osaka

Marriott International’s Moxy hotel brand continues its expansion in Japan with the opening of the 288-room Moxy Osaka Shin Umeda.

Located in one of the main hubs of Osaka City, the new hotel will provide guests with a fun and playful experience through lively communal spaces and spirited beverage and food offerings

As Marriott International’s bold experiential brand, the new hotel features fun, playful, and stylish experiences, designed to give business travellers everything they want and nothing they don’t. Creating an environment that appeals to today’s modern traveller as well as locals, Moxy Osaka Shin Umeda’s chic design pays homage to the vibrant city of Osaka. The aesthetics of the hotel are inspired by a combination of the fashionable art of Umeda and the unique expressions of local Fukushima, known as the “mechanical arcade” that once supported the development of Japan’s electronic industry.

The 288 guestrooms are cleverly designed to maximize space and allow guests the flexibility to adapt the room to their needs. Each room is equipped with the latest technology featuring a 55-inch flat-screen television with screencasting ability, furiously fast and free Wi-fi, abundant USB ports, motion-activated LED guidelight, and backlighted glass panels to add ambience.

The hotel also features several of the Moxy brand’s cheeky lifestyle touches. The signature Bar Moxy doubles as the hotel’s check-in counter, where guests are greeted upon arrival with a complimentary ‘Got Moxy’ cocktail. Buzzing with high-energy is The Terrace, an outdoor area where travellers can eat, drink and socialize. The Lounge, another insightful space, features graffiti art walls, modern furniture and ambient lighting, ideal for gatherings, special events, or crafted cocktails, while Grab and Go allows guests to satisfy their cravings day or night.  Guests can also plug in and tune out in the Library or re-energize using the pink Moxy punching bag in the hotel’s 24-hour fitness center, which also features gymnastic equipment, spinning bikes, and a full-circuit gym.

Conveniently located in the Umeda district, one of the main city centers of Osaka, Moxy Osaka Shin Umeda is just a five-minute walk from Fukushima Station. Accessibility is key, and this makes it ideal for travelers visiting for play or work. Tourist attractions and shopping districts in Osaka are just around the corner and surrounding prefectures including Kyoto and Nara not far beyond that.
