Bar Moxy is the heartbeat of our hotels. Hang out with friends or make new ones over hand-crafted drinks, small plates and games. It even serves double duty as our front desk. So stop by for your room key and a cocktail. On us.


Size matters. That’s why we broke the rules and designed our hotel rooms to maximize every inch of space. They’re full of little surprises and big delights like motion-activated LED guidelights and walk-in showers. Plus, helpfully designed wall features that allow for hanging and storage options to complement the compact room design. It’s your room - use it however you like it.
