Hotel Co 51 Green Key Achievements

At Hotel Co 51 we’re constantly striving for new opportunities to deliver sustainable hospitality with purpose. As part of this, our teams are working hard to secure Green Key certification across each of our +40 European properties by the end of 2024 by embedding meaningful and measurable operational initiatives throughout our business.

After rigorous audits, we’re proud to announce that Courtyard Gdynia Waterfront is the first hotel in our portfolio to receive the Green Key Certification. By demonstrating how they adhere to Green Key’s strict environmental and socially responsible criteria, they have become the city’s first Green Key-certified establishment. Moxy London ExCel and Moxy Milton Keynes have swiftly followed in their footsteps, becoming a proud new recipient of the prestigious Green Key plaque, and our first in the UK.

This certification provides an important starting point from which each hotel can measure its performance. More crucially still, the process helps us identify opportunities for future improvements so we can deliver the most responsible and positive experience for our guests, employees, and communities.

Congratulations to all the teams and we look forward to welcoming more of our hotels to the Green Key community over the coming months.

MOXY HOTELS GO BARKING MAD FOR NEW ENHANCED DOG-FRIENDLY PACKAGES

Moxy Hotels and Sir Woofchester’s Canine Hospitality announce ‘pawsome’ collaboration

MOXY HOTELS UK – April 15, 2024 – Moxy Hotels has established itself as one of the most dog-friendly hotel chains in the UK.  Today they’ve enhanced that further by teaming up with Sir Woofchester’s Canine Hospitality, a UK based innovative canine hospitality brand, to launch a range of healthy food and drink options for four-legged guests and their owners.

A recent survey showed that 56% of dog-owners want to take their dog with them for a hotel stay or holiday.  Already, Moxy Hotels is the only international hotel chain that allows dogs in all public areas, including the restaurant and bar, where they can enjoy the social spaces and the lively atmosphere. This new collaboration aims to make dogs feel even more welcome with their owners. 

On arrival, guests and their pooch who upgrade to the new package, will find a special Moxy Canine Comfort Package in their room, which features a welcome kit for dogs with a toy, snack pack, some poo bags and a welcome doggy-cocktail.  A unique menu for your pooch, created by Sir Woofchester’s Canine Hospitality, will also offer snacks, drinks, and meals on request.

Wayne Androliakos, Regional Director of Operations said, “Moxy is all about bending the rules for traditional hotel stays, so we wanted to create something that would elevate our portfolio of UK hotels, into the ultimate destination for dog lovers. We strongly believe that dogs are part of the family, and with the surge in demand for owners to bring their dogs, we felt they deserve to have choices and options when they travel.  Collaborating with Sir Woofchester’s will provide a fun a memorable experience for our guests and their dogs.”

Up to two dogs per room can stay at any Moxy UK hotel for £15 per dog per night. The Moxy Canine Comfort, dog-friendly package is available at 17 Moxy Hotels locations across the UK from £89 per night which includes a room, breakfast and the Canine Comfort Package and can be booked online at https://bit.ly/moxymutts. The package is limited to a certain number of rooms per day, so guests are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

David Wright from Sir Woofchester’s commented; “Our brand is made with natural and healthy ingredients, designed to appeal to a broad range of dogs, so it was great to work with Moxy Hotels in their stellar efforts to really push the boat out when it comes to being more dog-friendly.”

Moxy Hotels and Sir Woofchester’s Canine Hospitality are also launching a competition from today until the end of the month, to promote their collaboration, where guests can share their photos and videos of their dogs doing a unique trick on social media.  Using the hashtag #MoxyMutts, and tagging both @moxy.uk and @sirwoofchesters, the best entries will win a free pet-friendly stay at a Moxy Hotel in the UK, and a hamper of goodies from Sir Woofchester’s Canine Hospitality.
