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.
