The opening marks the first Moxy hotel to debut in an English city outside of London.
Located right in the city centre in Stonebow, the property offers 118-guestrooms and is designed for travellers looking for a “spirited, edgy hotel experience”. The interiors of the hotel have been themed around ‘Knights and The Shambles’ in a nod to York’s history.
John Licence, VP Premium and Select Brands Europe at Marriott International, said: “We’re excited to add Moxy York to our growing portfolio of Moxy Hotels across the UK.
“Now with seven properties open in the UK and over 10 in the pipeline in vibrant destinations fitting the brand’s irreverent spirit, Moxy’s tailored experience continues to attract the next generation traveller.”
Mads Jacobsen, CEO Belvar, the management group operating Moxy York, added: “Since the first UK Moxy opened in 2016 we are delighted to be adding York to our growing portfolio. Each hotel has its own personality, showcasing eclectic art that will resonate with locals and guests alike.
“For us it’s more than just bedrooms, it’s a way of doing things differently in the hotel arena. We aim to deliver the ‘human touch’ with our approach to customer service with the focus on the bar and playful crew.”
