Moxy Manchester City to open this November

Transforming a former 18th Century hat factory, the new hotel is clad in weathered-effect metal panels to give an ‘urban contrast’ to the original façade

The 146-room Moxy Manchester City, a Marriott concept from KE Hotels, is set to open at Manchester’s Spinningfields this November.

Designed as a “boutique hotel at heart”, Moxy Manchester City’s bedrooms will feature platform beds, a workspace, comfy lounge chairs, walk-in showers, TVs with Netflix, open-wall closets, and motion activated LED guidelights.

The hotel has also done away with the front desk and instead guests will head straight to the bar where a complimentary cocktail is served at check-in, alongside the room key.

Bar Moxy is set in the communal living room lobby and offers hand-crafted drinks, small plates, and “upbeat background music”.

Transforming a former 18th Century hat factory, the new hotel is clad in weathered-effect metal panels to give an “urban contrast” to the original façade that has been retained as part of the new nine-storey structure.

Director at KE Hotels, Anil Khanna, said: “Moxy Manchester City will be a new playground for the neighbourhood and city. Our play and stay concept is a new way of travelling, designed to give guests everything they want at an affordable price.

“Located in the city’s vibrant Spinningfields district, Moxy Manchester City won’t take itself too seriously, but it is serious about showing guests a good time. We have smartly spaced rooms, stylish communal areas that are ideal for work and meetings, and a new cool bar for the city.”

He added: “We wanted the design of the building to fuse together traditional and contemporary – the exterior is stunning and something very unique, whilst the hotel’s interior will feature nods towards the building’s industrial past. We can’t wait to show Manchester the Moxy lifestyle.”
