Noble Investment Group opened the Moxy New Orleans hotel, marking the Marriott brand’s second entry in the U.S., following the property in Tempe, Ariz. It is the fourth Moxy property to open worldwide since launching in Milan, Italy, in 2014.
New York-based Stonehill & Taylor Architects designed the property.
Located on O’Keefe Avenue near the French Quarter, the boutique hotel has 108 guestrooms with industrial touches such as concrete floors, exposed columns and open ceilings. The rooms are also tech-enabled, with such features as mobile check in and check out, keyless entry, motion sensor lighting, Internet TV in-room and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The communal areas have ample plug-ins for personal devices, a library zone and the Moxy Digital Guestbook for streaming videos and pictures via Instagram. The NOW public space at Moxy New Orleans also comes with game tables.
Moxy Hotels has 17 locations slated to open by the end of 2017 in cities like Nashville, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle and Washington, DC. The brand plans to launch 150 hotels worldwide over the next decade.
