The latest example of Marriott International’s “micro-room, macro-amenity” collection, Moxy Hotels, opened in New York’s Chelsea neighbourhood last week housed in a 35-storey skyscraper at W 28 St and 6th Avenue.
Inspired by the surrounding Flower District, the Moxy NYC Chelsea is said to blend a botanically-influenced design with Italian romance to create an environment that appeals to the modern traveller as well as locals.
The 349-room property marks the second collaboration between Yabu Pushelberg, Rockwell Group, and architect Stonehill Taylor, the designer behind a similar New York opening, Moxy Times Square.
A Marriott spokesman said the Chelsea hotel is designed to blend into the flower shops that surround it, with a three-storey glass atrium revealing vertical gardens inside. Guests enter through a flower shop also created by Yabu Pushelberg.
Members of Marriott’s recently-renamed Loyalty programme, Marriott Bonvoy, which has replaced Marriott Rewards, Starwood Preferred Guest and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards, can also access keyless entry through the Marriott Mobile App.
Moxy now has more than 30 experiential hotels open across North America, Europe and Asia. The brand is expected to open more than 20 more hotels this year in top destinations including Paris, Nashville and Boston.
