ENTRY_Moxy.jpg Share your Insider travel adventures to Frankfurt, Germany by commenting on this post and you could earn points.*


Check into the Moxy Frankfurt East and jump right into the pulsating life of Frankfurt’s dynamic Ostend district. Once a harbor and industrial zone on the east side, the area along the Hanauer Landstraße has flourished into one of the most popular districts along the Main river, attracting people with its vast array of night clubs, creative agencies, technology companies, factory outlets, car dealers and artists’ studios. With the addition of the new European Central Bank (ECB) building the area was given another significant boost, while attractive apartments and trendy restaurants continue to pop up all around. So it’s only fitting that the new Moxy Frankfurt East should open its doors here this September as well. With a façade that shimmers like gold, the hotel is eye-catching from the outside, and has a casual industrial chic interior. As our guest you can connect to the in-house high-speed Wi-Fi network immediately, and then get comfortable in one of the lounges to play games with other guests or order pizza to the hotel in the evening.


Visible from a distance, the landmark and symbol of the gentrification of Frankfurt’s Ostend district is undoubtedly the double towers of the ECB, which Austrian architects Coop Himmelb(l)au linked to the historical building of the old market hall in a spectacular way. Currently 1,100 bankers are based here – even though many have stayed in the old building downtown – and they can enjoy the view of the Main River and the inspiring surroundings. The city has built a park for skaters and BMX bikers on the side facing the river, which attracts ambitious athletes all week long.


Art can be found in the immediate neighborhood of the Moxy hotel as well. Atelier Frankfurt is home to around 200 artists and also houses the studio of artist Tobias Rehberger, who became famous for his dazzle camouflage interior and now shapes the city’s party life in and around his studio. The showroom of Morgen Architecture is situated in the same building complex – a must for design fans. Only a few steps away is the Schwedlersee – an artificial lake in the center of the east harbor that is the club pool of the Frankfurt swimming society founded in 1891 – here you can sip your beer unpretentiously in the open air (but only on Sundays in summer). Please note: The sporadic parties taking place here are among the most epic in town!


And should the fall have a few warm hours of sunshine left in store, we recommend a visit to the Blaues Wasser restaurant: What looks like a dive bar on the outside is actually a restaurant with patios, a loggia and bar, situated right on the Main river. This place radiates the flair of a lovely fish restaurant at the docks of Athens – the perfect place to enjoy a fine gin and tonic with a view of the water and the busyness of Frankfurt’s east harbor.

The thousandth Courtyard in the world chose Recife, the capital of Pernambuco in the northeast of Brazil, to be its home. Pernambuco is by its nature multicultural: it was historically home to Portuguese, Dutch, Afro-descendants and Indigenous groups. All contributed to form this diverse cultural mass. You can find everything in Pernambuco: people of all kinds, places to suit all tastes, and public spaces for all kinds of events. Added to this is the state's breathtaking natural beauty. From the coast to the interior you’ll find cities boasting colonial architecture, untouched beaches, and culture everywhere.


Pernambuco's cuisine was born from the wonderful balance between Portuguese, Indian and African cuisines. Land of sugarcane, Pernambuco saw the birth of its fascination with sweets in the "Big House" (which served as residence for the Lord of the operation, his family and servants that were responsible for turning sugarcane into sugar and honey). From the coast come the fish and crustaceans. From the interior come the carne de sol (literally meat of the sun), the queijo de coalho (typical cheese of the region) and goat. The combination of tastes made Recife the first gastronomic pole of the North and Northeast of Brazil and the third of Brazil. Not to be missed, a true festival of flavors is available to our guests who can sample everything from delicious home-cooked food to sophisticated international cuisine at The Bistro, Courtyard Recife's restaurant.


In Recife there are restaurants that specialize in mixing the culinary tradition of the country side with the international, giving rise to very tasty and sophisticated dishes. In the breakfast buffet at the Courtyard by Marriott Boa Viagem, tourists will find local items that are worth trying out like Cuscuz (corn masa cake), Tapioca, Bolo de Rolo (fine rolled-up cake with guava jam filling) and Cartola (fried banana with cheese, sugar and cinnamon).


Recife's historic downtown, the most traditional neighborhood in the capital of Pernambuco, is a cultural and entertainment center, a must-visit for our visitors. There are bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and handicrafts fairs, as well as the landmark that marks the original center of the city and the first synagogue in the Americas, Kahal Zur Israel, built in 1637 by Jews who came from Amsterdam to live in Recife. The state capital also stands out for its pioneering cinematography and for being the birthplace of creative and enterprising talents. Every year the city of Recife serves as the stage for Brazil's national cinema.


The historic site of Olinda, sister city to Recife, is a separate attraction for those thirsty for culture. One of the most important architectural areas in the country, Olinda received the title of World Cultural Heritage, granted by UNESCO, and the first Brazilian capital of culture. The old houses and the charming hillsides contribute to the charm of the city, which is also the stage of one of the most popular festivals in Brazil: the Carnival.


During your visit, we hope that you stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Recife Boa Viagem and enjoy the best that Recife has to offer. While you're in town, ask our Front Desk team how you can make the most out of your stay in Recife. We're sure you'll find the perfect tour for your trip.
