Moxy Opens In South Lake Union
The Moxy Seattle Downtown hotel opened recently in the South Lake Union neighborhood at 1016 Republican St. It has 146 rooms, eight floors and flexible event space.
Moxy Hotels, a Marriott International brand, are experiential and geared toward millennials. Guests check in at the bar where they are offered a complimentary “Got Moxy” cocktail. The hotel offers mobile check-in and keyless entry. The rooms are about 200 SF and feature a peg wall instead of a closet for hanging clothes and jackets. Rooms include a king-size bed, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, rain showers and under-bed motion sensor lighting.
The hotel will offer weekly trivia nights, including a trivia night hosted by celebrity drag queens. The hotel has a teeter-totter in its lobby and a pink punching bag in its 24-hour fitness center.
The Moxy in Seattle is the company’s 23rd international location and sixth in the country. In 2018, the brand will open locations in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Memphis, Atlanta and Munich. Moxy debuted in 2014 with its first location in Milan.
