Marriott has added its seventh Moxy property in the US, with the opening of the Moxy Chicago Downtown.

The hotel is located in the River North neighbourhood of the city, on the corner of Grand Avenue and LaSalle Drive, and close to the group’s existing Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile.

Facilities at the 156-room property include 49-inch smart TVs in guest rooms, a fitness centre, Bar Moxy (the brand’s signature bar-cum-front-desk), and Zombie Taco, a “24-7 food truck inspired concept with global flavors serving tacos, healthy bowls, burritos, and other fresh, made-to-order items”.

The Moxy brand was unveiled in 2013, with the first property opening in Milan in 2014 – for a Tried and Tested review published shortly after the hotel opened see:

According to Marriott the brand is “designed to capture the rapidly emerging millennial traveller”, and “combines contemporary stylish design, approachable service and, most importantly, an affordable price”.

There are currently around 30 Moxy properties worldwide, including five in the UK in Aberdeen, Glasgow and London’s Excel, Heathrow and Stratford.
