Moxy makes its Australian debut

The Moxy Hotels group, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 31 different hotel brands, today opens the doors to its first hotel in Australia.

The Moxy Sydney Airport is the first of a range of hotels that are designed to appeal to the young and young-at-heart with their casual vibe.

I've stayed at Moxy properties in Glasgow, and at Milan's Malpensa airport and enjoyed both stays.

Located in Mascot, in the Inner South of Sydney, the new 301-bedroom hotel is close by to Sydney International Airport, with Moxy’s pink airport shuttle bus set to greet guests as they arrive.

The hotel is easily accessible from Sydney CBD.

Sean Hunt, area vice president of Australia, New Zealand and Pacific for Marriott International (what a great job title!) said: “We have been fiercely focused on introducing new lifestyle brands to Australia that will appeal to the changing needs of modern travellers.

"The debut of Moxy’s disruptive hotel experience at Sydney Airport does just that, ringing in an exciting new era for Marriott International in the country.”

​​​​​Moxy Sydney Airport's design is inspired by Mascot’s industrial and art-deco heritage.

The hotel’s façade has a mural created by local artist Elliott Routledge, known for his distinctive, abstract designs.

The lobby has exposed ceilings, wrought-iron beams, and natural materials to create the open, airy feel of a converted warehouse.

Designed as a multi-functional work and interactive social space, the lobby is centred around the hotel bar where guests check in with a complimentary “Get Moxy” signature cocktail. Within the lobby, guests can also enjoy the hotel’s ​​​​Living Room, a laid-back communal space.

The industrial-chic bedrooms are said to "combine functionality and flexibility with edgy detail". The rooms feature modular furniture including Moxy’s signature Stellar Works foldable workspace desks and chairs, as well as smart features like peg walls to allow guests the flexibility to adapt the room to their needs.

Tech-savvy touches include motion-activated LED lights, keyless entry, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, and complimentary wifi.

Bar Moxy is designed for working and connecting during the day and transforms into a social hub at night. Local brands including Archie Rose and Young Henry are showcased, while the hotel’s street café, Little Baxter, offers grab n’ go bites or coffees and pastries for those looking to linger.

There are also five meeting studios for private events.

Located at 56 Baxter Road, Mascot, Moxy Sydney Airport offers rates starting at $209 per night.
