The newly opened Moxy Boston Downtown is filled with nods to the Theater District, with interiors designed by Boston-based Group One. The hotel is managed by Highgate.
Within an envelope of raw concrete, neon lights, and warm oak plank walls, the hotel design captures the grit and rawness of a theater’s backstage, while infusing it with a bold, energetic attitude. Instagrammable spots and selfie walls abound around every turn, including Moxy Boston Downtown’s colorful tree and wing murals, and other custom artwork by street artist Victor “Marka27” Quiñonez, along with a custom ceiling light installation inspired by theatrical stage rigging at the hotel’s entrance. Peekaboo sidewalk window displays showcasing costumed mannequins, catwalks filled with vintage theater decor, stage lighting, neon signs, and pops of Moxy pink throughout give the hotel a spirit that plays into the theatrical drama.
Upon entering the hotel, guests are immediately greeted by the hotel’s food truck-inspired photo booth and tunes streaming from indie617, Boston’s indie rock radio station. They can either choose to check in via mobile there or head to the front desk on the second-floor lobby that showcases views framed in floor-to-ceiling windows.
Managed by Boston-based the Lyons Group, the hotel features the Bar Moxy on the second floor, offering a late night “Curtain Call” menu. On the 24th floor sits The Mezz, the hotel’s rooftop lounge. The property also has 2,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space. Named “Stage Right” and “Stage Left,” each of the third-floor meeting rooms features a pop-art-inspired ceiling mural.
