Moxy Hotels, a part of Marriott Bonvoy’s extensive portfolio, unveils the Moxy Halifax Downtown, introducing the brand’s innovative spirit to Canada for the first time.
This new hotel transforms the conventional hotel experience with its energetic guest experiences and sociable service, setting a new benchmark in hospitality.
Nestled in the heart of Halifax, a burgeoning coastal city in Atlantic Canada, the Moxy Halifax Downtown offers easy access to the city’s dynamic downtown area. With 160 rooms, the hotel is a stone’s throw from a variety of shopping destinations, spas, galleries, parks, concert venues, and sports attractions, making it an ideal spot for travelers seeking a mix of leisure and adventure.
Matthew Boettcher, Vice President of Distinctive Select Brand Portfolio at Marriott International, expressed enthusiasm about the Moxy brand’s debut in Canada with the launch of Moxy Halifax Downtown. He highlighted Halifax’s vibrant energy, culture, and diversity as perfect complements to the Moxy brand’s ethos.
The hotel’s design and architecture pay tribute to Halifax’s industrial heritage, blending modernity with historical elements. The lobby features steel bridge columns, exposed brick, and a unique DJ booth, alongside a striking steel lion sculpture at the entrance, symbolizing Nova Scotia’s flag. The hotel also houses a secret room, the ‘Lion’s Den’, which honors the site’s history with stained glass replicas and organ pipes.
Moxy Halifax Downtown merges functionality with fun across its guestrooms and suites, offering innovative layouts and industrial-chic decor. Rooms are equipped with Moxy’s signature foldable desks, modular furniture, motion-activated LED lights, keyless entry, and large flat-screen TVs, emphasizing convenience and style. Additionally, the hotel caters to fitness enthusiasts with a 24/7 gym.
The hotel stakes its claim in Halifax’s food and beverage scene with Bar Moxy and Moxy Pick-Ups, providing laid-back yet stylish dining and drinking options. These venues offer a social atmosphere, local brews, and convenient 24/7 snacks and drinks, enriching Halifax’s vibrant social landscape.
For business and events, Moxy Halifax Downtown features versatile meeting spaces, a boardroom, and private meeting rooms, complemented by stylish communal areas for relaxation and networking. This makes the hotel a prime destination for both leisure and corporate guests.
