For those of you who are avid music lovers, you likely seek out music-centred destinations while travelling. However, what if the element of music finds you during your journey instead, seamlessly blending with your entire experience from start to end? This is what you’ll be treated to at Marriott Bonvoy's Aloft and Moxy Hotels.

We all know the name Marriott, with thousands of unique properties across the world. And at their upbeat Moxy and Aloft establishments, your travel experience will be taken up a notch through their design, programming and unique service offerings. The best part? They won’t break the bank. Whether it's live music events at Aloft or games and activities at Moxy, these hotels offer more than just a place to sleep.

Marriott Bonvoy has also recently concluded their Sizzling Summer Music Fest in Japan – a festival boasting live music programming at various establishments. The event focuses on intertwining music with the travel experience for fellow jetsetters. Additionally, Marriott Bonvoy was also a sponsor for Summer Sonic 2023 in Tokyo, one of Japan's hottest music festivals.

Aloft Hotels

Aloft Hotels are designed for tech-savvy, music-loving travellers who are out to enjoy themselves at every turn of their journey. Known for their live music events, Aloft hotels have hosted numerous musicians, including the likes of Ed Sheeran. 


As you enter Aloft Hotels, you'll be welcomed by their vibrant ambiance and striking design elements. Inspired by loft spaces, their common areas are designed to encourage people to come together and collaborate, or simply hang out. Grab a drink or two at the stylish W XYZ bar, and don’t miss out on their live performances every now and then to discover emerging artists in the area.



With a focus on guest convenience, Aloft Hotels feature a Re:fuel bar for those in need of quick bites during their hectic schedules. There’s also a gym and pool for a workout and a thoughtfully curated Spotify playlist to serve as the soundtrack to your stay – and it is the smallest details like these that make for an all-rounded experience. Don't forget to head to the roof top – Roof Dogs – for a breathtaking view overlooking Ginza.


Fur friends (below 40 pounds) are not forgotten as well – Aloft’s ‘Animals R Fun’ Program  warmly welcomes your pets during your stay. They will receive their own bowl, picker upper bags, tasty treats, a dog tag, pet toys and their very own signature bed.

Here, you'll be treated to a complimentary ‘Got Moxy’ cocktail from their 24-hour bar to kickstart your holiday on the right foot. The hotel is constantly buzzing with energy, with a spacious communal area for travellers to hang out with friends and make new ones. There are also board games for you to pass your time.


Other examples of their exciting programming include lip sync battles, acupuncture happy hour, Relax Corners featuring mini massages and nail tattoos, burlesque shows, tarot card readings, al fresco screenings of cult classics and life-size Jenga.



The rooms at Moxy are also well thought out, designed with modular layouts that maximise every inch of space. You'll immediately notice that the furniture is cleverly wall-mounted, not only to save space but also to provide guests with the flexibility for personalisation. Don’t need the table? Simply hang it up to enjoy more free space.

Similar to Aloft, pets are welcome at Moxy Hotels as well. Selected Moxy Hotels offer pet amenities and even have staff dogs on property (squeals).
