After an incredibly successful launch of Moxy Times SquareLightstone, TAO Group, Rockwell Group, and Yabu Pushelberg are rejoining forces to open Moxy Chelsea opening this fall.

The hotel, developed by Lightstone and part of Marriott International’s experiential Moxy Hotels brand, will rise 37 stories high into the New York City skyline and feature 349 bedrooms flooded with natural light and designed thoughtfully – and of course with a touch of wit.

It’s set to become a destination where visitors and locals can connect in a natural and inclusive way,” says Mitchell Hochberg, President of Lightstone. “Like Moxy Times Square, Moxy Chelsea offers guests affordability, without any sacrifice to style or comfort.”

Designed by architects Stonehill Taylor, the building honors the neighborhood with its industrial exterior and soaring, greenhouse-style atrium. Spanning the front façade, the glass-enclosed conservatory will envelop guests in sunlight and lush vegetation, with a three-story-high living wall and greenhouse-style windows. Beyond the two meeting studios and co-working lounge will be an outdoor garden terrace with vintage Italian flair complete with a Neapolitan-style pizza oven and made-for-Moxy bocce drinking game.

Bedrooms, designed by Yabu Pushelberg, are filled with whimsical details, while reflecting a careful consideration of both space and functionality. Ten-foot ceilings and full height, wall-to wall windows, will drench the rooms with sunlight. The interior design will seek to convey a feeling of openness through the use of warm, wood-like floors, army-green mosaic tile, striped drapes, wax-dipped canvas headboards, honest materials, and nostalgic wit.

Each cozy, exceptionally efficient bedroom will include custom-designed, multipurpose, foldaway furniture, which hangs on an open pegboard wall. Bathrooms will feature walk-in rain showers with cheeky phrases printed on its tiles like “Some Regrets” and “Wild Thing.” Room types will include king rooms, double/doubles and quad bunk rooms as well as a hospitality suite with two adjoining king rooms, named the Mondo Suite.

“Moxy colors outside the lines when it comes to the traditional hospitality experience, and working hand-in-hand with Lightstone, we are set to disrupt the New York hotel scene once again with the opening of Moxy Chelsea,” said Vicki Poulos, Senior Global Brand Director, Moxy Hotels. “The combination of best-in-class in design, culture and food & beverage, as well as a killer price point, will no doubt deliver the fun and playful hotel experience guests have come to expect from Moxy Hotels, while reflecting the unique spirit of Manhattan’s Flower District.”
