Millennial-Focused Moxy Hotel To Unveil In Downtown San Diego Later This Month

November 3, 2018

Later this month, Marriott International will bring its first California location of the company's experiential, millennial-minded Moxy Hotel to San Diego's historic Gaslamp District. The two-year-old boutique-hotel concept is aimed at budget-savvy travelers and will offer 128 tech-enabled rooms with a bold-yet-funky, contemporary design and modern amenities.

Developed by San Diego-based J Street Hospitality in partnership with Marriott International Hotels, Moxy Hotel will sit right outside the Gaslamp Quarter on the east side of Sixth Avenue between E and F streets, offering eight-stories with 128-rooms. At Moxy, guests will check in at the bar or from a mobile check-in station to receive their digital room key, as well as Bar Moxy’s signature welcome nitro-cocktail served from a lively tricycle.

The hotel will feature an open lobby that will serve as the main gathering space with multiple communal areas for lounging, plus large "writing walls", 56-inch televisions, a state-of-the-art video wall with helpful travel tools, shuffle board, 80s arcade games, Giant Jenga, Twister, and daily, weekly and monthly activations and events. Moxy’s signature, Instagram-worthy design will also include a custom painted mural on the hotel’s exterior by a local graffiti artist and the brand’s digital "guestbook" that showcases a stream of fellow guests around the world who tag #atthemoxy.

Guest rooms will have cushy beds, 42" TVs with high-quality sound systems, built in USB ports, and complimentary, speedy Wi-Fi. The hotel will offer 24/7 food and beverage offering with a wide selection of snacks, cocktails, craft beers, wines, and soft drinks, as well as a healthy continental breakfast for guests and an evening bar featuring wines by the glass and local brews. The hotel will be managed by Azul Hospitality, which will also oversee the incoming The Guild Hotel in San Diego's downtown Marina District, set to open next year. 

Moxy Hotel is set to unveil by month's end at 831 Sixth Avenue in downtown San Diego. For more information, visit
