    Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand, continues to make its mark on the hospitality scene as it introduces its third property in the UK and second in the British capital.

    Following the successful launch of Moxy London Excel, Moxy London Stratford brings the brand’s characteristic vibrant, playful design and approachable service to the fashionable East London scene, offering the style and spirit of a boutique hotel without breaking the bank.

    The 294-bedroom is ideally located in booming Stratford, which has benefited from over a decade of regeneration to become one of the city’s best shopping and sporting destinations, having played host to the 2012 London Olympics and being home to one of the largest shopping centres in Europe.  Excellent transport links also provide easy access to London City Airport, St Pancras International, Excel London, and the edgy social scene of nearby Shoreditch, making it a perfect choice for business and leisure travellers alike.

    “Our Fun Hunter guests continue to seek inspiration from their travel,” said John Licence, VP Premium and Select brands at Marriott International Europe. “The new Moxy London Stratford will offer guests a cocktail at check-in, spontaneous games in the lively communal spaces, and an energetic crew to bring out the most fun from this vibrant corner of London and give them something to rave about when they return home.”

    Welcome #ATTHEMOXY
    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 buzzing lobby. The contemporary lobby’s modern furniture invites guests to relax, pick up a book from the Moxy library, connect and catch up with friends or retreat to the gym to re-energise by punching the pink Moxy punching bag. Guests of Moxy London Stratford are encouraged to take a selfie in the photo-booth-inspired hotel elevators, complete with props.

    Living Room #ATTHEMOXY
    Moxy London Stratford’s Living Room is the centre of activity, giving guests fun ways to work and play hard. Sealed concrete floors, walls lined with intriguing art and fun references to local culture including artistic nods to the area’s 2012 Olympics legacy are complemented by ambient lighting and comfortable accents of colour. The Living Room also features abundant power and USB outlets, and furiously fast and free Wi-Fi for ultimate connectivity. A high-energy yet cosy space for gatherings, special events or cocktails, the lounge plays host to eclectic upbeat music.

    The hotel’s 294 contemporary bedrooms, ranging from Standard to Family size, are outfitted with sound-reducing walls, 42″ LCD flat screen televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi, abundant USB ports, comfortable bedding and deep-seated armchairs in calming, neutral fabrics. Every bedroom 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 ultimate 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.

    24/7 Dining #ATTHEMOXY
    Moxy’s 24/7 B&F (Beverage & Food), smart and fun self-service concept gives guests access to what they want, whenever they want it. The Moxy dining area offers lots of options for food and drink including fresh juices and a coffee bar. Guests can enjoy fresh Panini sandwiches and a range of healthy alternatives from salad to antipasti. An evening Crockpot entrée will be served along with a variety of cocktails, craft beers and specialty wines. The bar is full-service and the hub of activity in the lobby – it also doubles as the hotel’s physical check-in, where guests are greeted with a complimentary ‘Got Moxy’ cocktail upon arrival.

    Marriott Rewards #ATTHEMOXY
    Moxy guests who are members of the award-winning Marriott Rewards loyalty programme will get exclusive access to even more digital features through the Marriott Mobile app when they book direct, including mobile check-in and check-out, keyless entry and Mobile Requests to make their travel experience seamless. Marriott Rewards members will also earn points for their stay at Moxy Hotels and can redeem for hotel stays across the Marriott Rewards portfolio of brands.

    Rates #ATTHEMOXY
    Special opening rates at the new Moxy London Stratford begin at £68.

    Following the recent openings both Moxy Stratford and Moxy London Excel, the UK is expected to see a further seven Moxy hotels launch by the end of 2018 alone, covering  all four corners of the country with properties in vibrant destinations such as Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Southampton set to offer bold and experiential stays for fun-hunting travellers.
