Hotel Description

The reality of New York real estate means that a budget-friendly hotel has no choice but to compromise a bit on the size of the rooms. The idea behind a hotel like the Moxy NYC Times Square is that you shouldn’t have to compromise on everything else. And what’s square footage, anyway, in the city that famously never sleeps? The biggest lesson from the boutique-hotel boom may be that a place to sleep is only a part of what today’s travelers look to hotels to provide.

To that end the Moxy’s proprietors — the hospitality giant Marriott — have invested heavily in the hotel’s entertainment offerings. Legasea, the flagship restaurant, focuses on seafood, while a grab-and-go café handles more casual fare. A sandwich shop splits the difference, while Bar Moxy is a low-key lounge that’s appropriate for business and pleasure. And the star of the show is Magic Hour, which happens to be the city’s biggest indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge, featuring the expected cocktails and DJ nights as well as a bit of a carnival vibe complete with games like mini-golf.

All of this is not to say that the rooms are neglected. They’re compact but they’re attractive, and while they’re missing many of the trappings of traditional luxury hotels, they’ve got the basics: rain showers, 43-inch televisions, and furniture custom-designed by Yabu Pushelberg to take up no more space than is absolutely necessary. This is a hotel for travelers who, quite frankly, spend the bulk of their waking hours out on the town.
