Affordable digs, inventive communal spaces, and a rotating rooftop bar complete this millennial-minded Midtown refuge
No single spot epitomizes the avant-garde spirit of Moxy Times Square, a midtown gem aimed at the modern traveler, more than Magic Hour—its extravagant and elaborate rooftop amusement park. Featuring carousel seating, a topiary garden, a putt-putt golf course, and epic Empire State Building views, the lofty bar (which is fully winterized for the colder months) unabashedly pushes the envelope. Case in point: for $99, bar guests who over-indulge can rent one of 19 “crash pads,” 120-square-foot refuges below the hotel. Part of a surge of affordable micro sleeps sprouting up across Manhattan and Brooklyn, the Moxy holds 612 camper-influenced rooms equipped with Bluetooth sound bars and rain showers that come at a distinctly low price point. (So don’t expect a bellman or mini-fridges.) What they didn’t skimp on? The dining options. With the illustrious TAO Group at the helm, guests can choose from five onsite restaurants including a sustainable seafood brasserie, a copper-wrapped cocktail bar, or an egg-centric sandwich shop.
In the Area
Despite its name, the hotel is actually located on 36th Street and 7th Avenue, a few blocks south of Times Square—putting guests within walking distance of Macy’s, Koreatown, and Broadway Bites, a summer and fall outdoor market lined with gourmet street-food stalls. Though you’re surrounded by an insomniac city, the property itself hosts many pop-up events, ranging from wine tastings and weekly trivia nights to dance fitness classes on its gargantuan rooftop. The Moxy is also the site of The Blind Barber, a four-chair barbershop-speakeasy (a satellite location to their East Village flagship) accessible through a neon entrance by the lobby’s elevator banks.
How to Get There
Stayed at the Moxy with four friends for a girlie holiday. Yes rooms are a little on the small side but wasn’t in it for long as so much to do in NYC. Free coffee in the bar from 6.30 to 10.30 which is a bonus! Although the the man on the corner does a great coffee and pastries. 10 mins walking distance to Times Square and about a hour and half walk to battery park to get ferry to Statue of Liberty ????. The guys in front reception were fantastic and extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying at the moxy and when we are back in NYC will definitely stay again
This is a great hotel. in the heart of Times Square. Great bar, great breakfast. Very different in a good way. Check in staff require improvement. Cannot fault it. The bed was so comfortable. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The room is the smallest I have ever stayed in. Perfect for one. Just about ok for 2. Outside of this it was a really great hotel at a great price.
