Marriott International’ Moxy brand has arrived in Boston with the recent opening of the Moxy Boston Downtown in the city's theater district. Design-wise, the property is filled with stylish nods to the Theater District and offers social spaces, and beverage and food offerings.
Situated at the corner of Stuart and Tremont Streets, Moxy Boston Downtown is steps from Back Bay and Chinatown. Guests are immediately greeted by the hotel’s food truck-inspired photo booth and tunes streaming from indie617, Boston’s indie rock radio station, which broadcasts its morning show live from Moxy Boston Downtown.
Designed by Boston’s Group One, Moxy Boston Downtown’s industrial chic design pays homage to the surrounding Theater District. Within an envelope of raw concrete, neon lights and oak plank walls, the hotel design captures a theater’s backstage. Instagrammable spots and selfie walls abound around every turn, including Moxy Boston Downtown’s tree and wing murals, and other custom artwork by street artist Victor “Marka27” Quiñonez, along with a custom ceiling light installation inspired by theatrical stage rigging at the hotel’s entrance. There are also peekaboo sidewalk window displays showcasing costumed mannequins, catwalks filled with vintage theater decor, stage lighting, neon signs, and pops of Moxy pink throughout.
All of the 340 guestrooms have queen bed with floor-to-ceiling windows. The “Wicked Awesome View” corner rooms offer panoramic city views from two sides. All rooms have peg walls, walk-in tiled showers, and custom furniture that is dual purpose and foldaway, allowing guests to customize their space for work or play. The rooms also have keyless entry, numerous power and USB outlets, free Wi-Fi, and 42-inch flat-screen HDTV.
For dining, the property has Bar Moxy, an all-day restaurant located on the hotel’s second floor. The Mezz, the hotel’s rooftop lounge, is open exclusively to hotel guests. The Mezz is also available for private events.
Other amenities include: a business center, spaces for co-working and a gym.
For events, Moxy Boston Downtown has 2,000 square feet of meeting and event space. There are two meeting rooms on the third floor of the hotel—“Stage Right” and “Stage Left,” each with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows and a pop-art-inspired ceiling mural.
Moxy Boston Downtown is managed by Highgate.
