Marriott Moxy has opened its 13th UK hotel.
The property is located in the heart of Spinningfields, an area described as ‘tendy’. It is Marriott Bonvoy’s official experimental hotel brand.
Moxy hotels are designed with social media-lovers in mind; Moxy Manchester City is the first Manchester hotel to have a digital ‘Guestbook’ wall. The Guestbook streams photos, and videos that Moxy guests have shared to the social sphere. Moxy moments are shared on the wall, which constantly changes as the social feed is updated.
The contemporary neighbourhood hotel is a rising nine-storey new build clad in weathered-effect metal panels to give an urban contrast from the original façade that has been retained from the former hat factory.
The Bar Moxy also serves as the hotel’s front desk, where a cocktail is served at check-in, alongside the room key. A football table, card games and board games and communal lockers also feature in the 24/7 space. From brightly coloured pouffe seating, hidden corners, and laid-back sofas to seats at the urban-style wrap-around bar.
Featuring a light bites menu and vibrant cocktails, Bar Moxy also has DJs playing every night to draw hotel guests out of their rooms and locals from their homes.
