Marriott hits a millennial home run with this new 155-room Moxy property, which opened last year. The hotel occupies a former 11-story undergarment warehouse in Osaka’s shabby-chic Honmachi district, minutes away from the station and chock-a-block with izakaya and kushikatsu joints. An industrial chic décor is found throughout, with exposed brick walls, white subway tiles, tin bath stools, timber veneer, old-fashioned phones and wall-mounted luggage racks, tables and chairs (tweaked from the original Yabu Pushelberg designs, but executed by local firm Wise Labo). Free Wi-Fi and a 24/7 gym sweeten the deal. A DJ and a rowdy gathering of laptop workers in the lobby will not affect the peace and quiet of your room. — Adam H. Graham
