Marriott International has opened the Moxy Chicago in the city's River North neighborhood. Developed by White Lodging and Friedman Properties, and managed by White Lodging, the 156-guestroom hotel is located on the corner of Grand Avenue and LaSalle Drive.
Texas-based Flick Mars and global integrated design firm DLR Group were both involved in the design of the property.
The lobby has industrial-chic communal spaces with a mix of modern and vintage-inspired furniture and light fixtures. The lobby also has Bar Moxy, serving as the "front desk" where guests check in, receive their room key and sip a complimentary cocktail. In the evening, the bar becomes a party venue with DJs and the Moxy SoundOff booth.
High-tech guestrooms features include 49" Smart TVs.
For dining, Moxy Chicago Downtown has Zombie Taco, a 24-7 food truck-inspired concept.
The hotel is the 29th Moxy Hotel to open globally and the seventh Moxy Hotel in the US.
