Moxy Hotels, Marriott Bonvoy’s experiential hotel brand, has announced the opening of Moxy Bristol in the heart of the vibrant city.
Located opposite the famous Cabot’s Circus, the new stylish and affordable hotel offers 214 guestrooms and has embraced its location with playful street art inspired design throughout, nodding to the famed art culture that adorns the streets, underpasses, back-alleys and bridges of Bristol.
The modern design and tech savvy features play to both leisure and business travellers, offering several guestroom types to suit everyone, from queen and twins to family rooms.
The Moxy team worked with Bricks, a Bristol-based social enterprise, to inject a bold and ultra-local collection of vibrant pieces of public artwork. On entry to the lobby, fun hunters are greeted with a commissioned piece of art evoking the famous St Pauls Carnival by painter and sculptor Bo Lanyon. It complements the numerous artworks on the walls, workstations and windows by artists including Lawrence Hoo, Charles Golding, Lucas Antics and Dr Myles-Jay Linton that celebrate the local St Pauls and St Jude’s culturally rich communities and heritage as well as Bristolian sayings and the famous Bristol Suspension Bridge.
Moxy Bristol celebrates originality with its quirky exterior featuring two eleven metre living walls alongside the hotel’s logo, setting the playful scene for guests from the moment they see the building. The hotel also offers several styled workstations, some with views out to the street as well as a meeting room for guests who want more of a gathering. For those looking for a quieter zone, the library is the place to be with chillout areas.
As with all Moxy hotels, the fun starts at Bar Moxy, the social heart of the hotel which doubles up as the check-in. It’s here that guests receive a complimentary cocktail on arrival before getting the chance to try out the games and activities in the communal space. For guests looking for a workout, the Moxy gym features the latest equipment.
Each guestroom has been thoughtfully mapped out to maximise on storage and space. Cabin luggage can easily slide under the cleverly designed platform bed where the tech-smart sensory mood lighting system underneath automatically switches off when you’re ready to sleep. USB-C connectors have been fitted to all rooms as well as European standard plugs for travellers.
“This hotel is in a fantastic location that you can’t miss as you enter into the city, opposite Cabot’s Circus.” said Captain Melih Yanik “This highly anticipated opening is a great addition to Bristol. We’re more than ready to let the personality of this hotel shine through, revolutionising what’s available in the hotel arena and look forward to welcoming guests to see what we have created.”
Donovan Sumner, Regional Director of Operations UK for Hotel Co. 51, the operations Company for Moxy Bristol added; “Bristol is a cutting-edge city and is perfectly matched for the free-spirited, cheeky and fun atmosphere that Moxy is now famous for. We’re proud to make this Hotel Co. 51’s 15th UK opening and our first in the south-west region, adding to our overall growth strategy. I’d also like to add that we’re delighted to have Melih join the Moxy crew as our Captain.”
