The New NYC Hotel Making Times Square Cool

This boutique hotel is geared towards young travellers

Written By Samira Larouci

Located in Midtown Manhattan on 36th Street and 7th Avenue is the newly opened Moxy Times Square – the boutique hotel that’s bringing a much-needed design overhaul to the city’s hotel scene.

 

The 612 room hotel—which is housed in a historic building that dates back to 1907—is set across a sprawling 2000 square-metre space that doesn’t sacrifice on style or comfort (despite it’s incredibly reasonable room rate).

 

 

With guest rooms ranging in size from 150 to 350 feet—designed by architecture firm Stonehill & Taylor—the Moxy’s entire design ethos is based on its unique blend of functionality and Instagram-ability.

 

From the service you get upon checking in (there’s no fuddy old hotel lobby – instead, guests check in with a standalone staff member) to the hotel’s internal deli, the New Stand, (which offers everything from magazines and toothbrushes to mini-piñatas) the Moxy’s aim is to be the hotel for visiting young creative. With an unbeatable price (rooms are known to sink to as little as $99 a night when booked ultra-last minute) meaning you can spend your entire NYC stay in a hotel, rather than couch surfing or Airbnb’ing.

 

Even if you’re not looking for somewhere to crash, you can slide by the hotel to grab a drink at Bar Moxy or a bite at Legasea (the hotel’s seafood brasserie helmed by executive chef Jason Hall) or nurse your night out at Egghead (the hotel’s all-day breakfast spot).

“Moxy pushes the envelope, so we tossed out the rulebook,” says Toni Stoeckl, the hotel’s Global Brand Leader and Vice President, “We set out to create a new paradigm within the New York hotel scene by bringing together the best-in-class in design, food & beverage and retail. The result has been a hotel experience like no other – fun, edgy, playful, and all at a killer price.”

 

Rooms at The Moxy start from $234 per night
