If you’re looking for a modern but good value hotel (and you’re not put off by a hotel which has a DJ playing every single night) in Manchester, Marriott’s Moxy brand has just opened.
Moxy Manchester City is in the Spinningfields area. It is a nine storey building based in a former hat factory.
“Step into Bar Moxy – the social heart of the hotel, which also serves as the hotel’s front desk, where a ‘Got Moxy’ cocktail is served at check-in, alongside the room key. Bar Moxy and the social atrium space has a modern and industrial feel, with local-inspired artwork, curated Manchester-style illustrations and illuminated signs across the lobby. A foosball table, card games, board games and communal lockers are also featured in the 24/7 space. From brightly coloured pouffe seating, hidden corners, and laid-back sofas to seats at the urban-style wrap-around bar, there’s something for all occasions.
Featuring a light bites menu and vibrant cocktail, Bar Moxy will also have DJs playing every night to draw hotel guests out of their rooms and locals out of their homes. An extensive drinks menu of beers, spirits, wine, and cocktails are available. Moxy specials include Got Moxy: Gin, with Moxy syrup blend; a non-alcoholic Fauxy Moxy: Moxy syrup blend and chilled tea; and the star of the show, Disco Diva: the ultimate sharing cocktail served in a disco ball with vodka, vanilla, limoncello, citrus elderflower, pomegranate, and prosecco. There’s also a dedicated barista counter for a coffee fix, and Grab ‘n Go snacks and beverages available 24/7.
The 146 stylish and smartly designed bedrooms can be as productive or as playful as needed, featuring plush platform beds to a fun-size workspace and comfy lounge chairs. Moxy Manchester City rooms feature walk-in showers, TVs with Netflix, open-wall closets, and motion activated LED guidelights. Plus, they’re pet friendly, so pooches can come too.”
