Marriott’s lifestyle Moxy Hotels brand will open two new properties in New York by the end of this year, adding to the existing Moxy Times Square.
The 298-room new-build Moxy Downtown is set to open this summer, and will be located off Broadway close to the World Trade Centre.
Features will include a third floor “play space”, which according to Marriott is “Designed to be the ultimate 24/7 neighbourhood hangout spot for both day and night”, with work spaces, games and entertainment, and a 12-foot by 21-foot “LED Wall”.
The hotel’s food and beverage offering will be run by a local partner, and will feature “bespoke cocktails, elevated bar fare and a tailored coffee programme”.
Meanwhile the Moxy Chelsea is scheduled to open by the end of the year, and is being described as a “micro-room, macro-amenity hotel”.
The 349-room property features a greenhouse style atrium with flower shop, trattoria, pasticceria and café, and a second floor space mixing meeting studios, a co-working lounge and a bar.
The 37-floor building will also have a glass-enclosed rooftop bar, which can be converted into an alfresco space through retractable windows.
Signature features of both hotels will include free wifi and a 24-hour grab-and-go food and beverage offering.
The brand is also set to open a hotel on Heathrow’s Bath Road, with Marriott’s website currently advising of an April 2018 opening date.
