Vicki Poulos, Global Brand Director, Moxy Hotels, comments: “Moxy Hotels is on a mission to reinvent traditional hospitality with lively communal spaces and an energetic crew that helps Fun Hunting guests enjoy themselves whether at work or play. We are excited to debut Moxy Hotels in London – a fun, social and modern city that embodies the essence of Moxy.”
Located near the Excel London convention centre and London City Airport, the 164-guestroom hotel will be a gateway to the city’s East End and a 24/7 spot for all things fun and impromptu.
Moxy’s fun, inclusive and youthful spirit is reflected in the combination of bold design and affordable style where communal engagement is at the centre of the experience. The interiors fuse refined and raw materials, organic and linear lines, and shared spaces. The Moxy experience kicks-off with a bright, airy and vibrant lobby featuring modern furniture. Elsewhere, the hotel’s living room features sealed concrete floors, walls lined with art and local references, and ambient lighting.
The hotel’s 164 contemporary guest rooms, ranging from standard to family size, are outfitted with sound-reducing walls, 42″ LCD flat screen televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi, USB ports, comfortable bedding and deep-seated armchairs in calming, neutral fabrics. Every guestroom makes a statement with a fun floor to ceiling art piece.
The design is functional, flexible and uncluttered, with simple, thoughtful touches including glass shelving and an open storage concept featuring a peg wall for flexibility when unpacking, in lieu of a traditional closet. Stylish bathrooms feature complimentary Muk toiletries, bright pink hair dryers, power showers and large mirrors alongside a spacious vanity area. Further, Moxy London Excel will feature flexible meeting spaces flooded with natural daylight and a self-service F&B concept.
