April 30 Update: Marriott's first Moxy in Canada will be in Banff, Aeroplan Market Fare Flight Rewards Sale and more!

Marriott's Moxy brand will be opening their first location under this banner in Banff. It will be operated by Canalta Hotels (they have their own hotels as well) who bought the Voyager Inn and they will be doing a major renovation to it before it opens as a Moxy in May 2021 - yes it is still two years away although the hotel will be open as much as possible during those renos as the Voyager Inn.

The 88-room Voyager Inn opened in 1964 as the first commercial motor hotel built in Banff. "We will be doing a very extensive renovation, taking it down to the bones and adding 12 rooms and underground parking to the back." They will take some meeting space from the original building to make some lofts, for a total of 106 rooms.

One key feature will be the bar. "Guests can check in at the bar," Christianson said. "We'll have a large and very interesting heated pool and hot tub in the courtyard. It will be an activated area with fireplaces. There's a pool there now, but it will be redone." There will also be a big emphasis on games in the lobby.
The rooftop will also be a "pretty awesome space with a bar and fire pits," said Christianson, adding that there's nothing there now. "The view will be amazing. It will offer a chance for guests to get outside all year, with fun, games and family activities."
The rooftop will also be available for events, small weddings and corporate parties. The bar will be enclosed and the rest open. There will also be see-through igloos, plus a rooftop hot tub, steam room and sauna. This spa area will be branded.

Here are just a few examples:

I know Europe's not the best example due to the high taxes and fees - might be better to search for some of the North American routes to get real value.
