There’s a new neighbourhood hotel and hangout aiming to bring “more style and socialising to Manchester” opening in Spinningfields next month.
Moxy Manchester City is a brand-new boutique hotel in the heart of the city centre.
Transforming a former hat factory, the new nine-storey hotel has given a fresh lease of life to an 18th century building, by cladding it in weathered-effect metal panels to give an urban contrast to the original façade that has still been retained.
A Marriott concept from KE Hotels that wants to be “the life and soul of the party”, and ensure that all guests have a good time from the minute they arrive, Moxy Manchester City has 146 vibrant bedrooms that are cleverly-designed to let guests be both as productive or playful as they want.
The rooms feature walk-in showers, TVs with Netflix, open-wall closets, and motion activated LED guidelights.
And if that wasn’t good enough as it is, all rooms are pet-friendly too.
Moxy Manchester City has done away with the front desk, and so guests will instead need to head to the hotel bar – which boasts a wide range of hand-crafted drinks and small plates – to collect their room key, along with a complimentary cocktail as well.
As for other spaces and facilities that guests can make the most of during their stay, there’s the communal living room lobby – which is a great place to meet with old friends, party with new ones, or keep it strictly business – and there’s also a dedicated barista counter for those early morning wake-ups and afternoon-pick-me-ups.
Snacks and drinks are also available 24/7 to satisfy any cravings that crop up.
“Moxy Manchester City will be a new playground for the neighbourhood and city,” said Anil Khanna, Director at KE Hotels.
“Located in the city’s vibrant Spinningfields district, Moxy Manchester City won’t take itself too seriously, but it is serious about showing guests a good time.
“We have smartly spaced rooms, stylish communal areas that are ideal for work and meetings, and a new cool bar for the city. We wanted the design of the building to fuse together traditional and contemporary [as] the exterior is stunning and something very unique, whilst the hotel’s interior will feature nods towards the building’s industrial past.
“We can’t wait to show Manchester the Moxy lifestyle.”
Moxy Manchester City opens its doors in November, and you can find more information ahead of the opening here.
