Jono, HE debut Canada's first Moxy Hotel

Jono Developments and Hotel Equities have opened the Moxy Halifax (Nova Scotia) Downtown. The 160-room hotel, owned by Jono and operated by Hotel Equities, is the first Moxy hotel to open in Canada.

“We live in an incredibly vibrant city that has a well-established reputation for being social, creative and connected," Joe Metlege, co-owner and developer, said in a statement. "Moxy Halifax Downtown is the boutique hotel reimagined and fills an existing gap in the hospitality space—offering a modern and energizing vibe where people can gather for business meetings, spontaneously meet up with friends after work or create the ultimate staycation.”

Co-owner and developer Norman Nahas added: “The Moxy brand is such a natural fit for Halifax and we are thrilled to be the first to bring it to Canada. In collaboration with our partners at Marriott, we have been able to design and curate something that is more than just a hotel—it’s a place with energy, day or night.”

“Jono’s commitment to design and architectural excellence reveal a hotel that the community can take pride in and ultimately has achieved a new level of differentiation for the Moxy brand," said Martin Stitt, HE’s SVP of operations, Canada. “That differentiator coupled with our dedication to operating the Moxy Halifax Downtown with the highest standards of service and hospitality ensures an exceptional experience for our guests."

The Moxy is within walking distance of nearby attractions including the Scotiabank Centre and Halifax Convention Centre, as well as art galleries, shops, dining and nightlife.
