Moxy Hotels Debuts in Canada

 

Moxy Halifax Downtown has officially opened, marking Moxy Hotels debut in Canada. True to the brand, the hotel boldly reinvents the traditional hotel stay with vibrant guest experiences and lively, sociable service.

Located in Halifax, the rapidly growing coastal city in Atlantic Canada, the new 160-room hotel is easily accessible to Halifax’s vibrant downtown scene and just steps away from a lively mix of great shopping, spas, galleries, parks, concert venues, and sporting attractions.

“As we continue to grow our global portfolio, introducing the spirited Moxy brand to Canada with the opening of Moxy Halifax Downtown is a milestone we are excited to celebrate,” said Matthew Boettcher, vice president of Distinctive Select Brand Portfolio, Marriott International. “Halifax is a city full of energy, culture, and diversity, making it the perfect destination for a brand like Moxy.”

The design of the main lobby pays homage to industrial Halifax, with steel bridge columns flanking the bar area, exposed brick, and an original cannon. It also features a custom-built DJ booth and an installation of vintage luggage as a nod to the city’s global influences. Among the hotel’s notable details is a stately steel lion sculpture, a reference to the Nova Scotia flag, installed at the hotel entrance and created by local firm, Ballast Design Studios. A hidden room, the ‘Lion’s Den’, is a modern dedication to the Trinty Anglican Church on the original site and features stained glass replicas and pipes from the original organ suspended from the ceiling.

For events and corporate gatherings, the hotel will offer 1,520 square feet of open, airy meeting space as well as a boardroom and several private meeting rooms. There are also plenty of stylish communal spaces where guests can relax and recharge.
