Moxy Manchester City opens its doors

Marriott has announced the opening of Moxy Manchester City, marking the brand’s debut in Manchester.

Moxy Manchester City is located in the heart of the city’s vibrant Spinningfields and is operated by KE Hotels. The hotel is perfectly located between Spinningfields and Deansgate, a stone’s throw from top local attractions like Albert Hall, Great Northern Warehouse, and Manchester Opera House, with the city’s best bars and restaurants on its doorstep; 20 Stories, The Ivy, Hawksmoor, and Albert’s Schloss to name a few. Market Street is just a 5-minutes’ walk from the hotel.

For the young at heart, Moxy Manchester City is the place to be for a playful staycation, offering affordable fun and endless adventure. The stylish hotel is a rising 9-storey build that’s clad in weathered-effect metal panels to give an urban contrast to the original façade that has been retained from the former hat factory.


Moxy crew members love doing it all and always think outside the box, offering an authentic experience and a whole load of fun. Designed with social media-lovers in mind, Moxy Manchester City is the first Manchester hotel to have a digital ‘Guestbook’ wall. The Guestbook streams photos, and videos that Moxy guests have shared to the social sphere. Moxy moments are shared on the wall, which constantly changes as the social feed is updated.

Bar Moxy is 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.

Meanwhile, Marriott recently announced that it will open more than 30 luxury hotel in 2022.
