Moxy Hotels, a lively and innovative brand under the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, is making a bold entrance into Australia with the opening of Moxy Sydney Airport. Known for delighting the young and young-at-heart, Moxy is set to redefine the traditional hotel experience by infusing it with vibrant guest interactions and a lively, sociable atmosphere.
Gateway to Sydney
Situated in Mascot, a convenient suburb in the Inner-South of Sydney, Moxy Sydney Airport offers 301 well-appointed guest rooms, making it an ideal choice for travelers. The hotel’s strategic location places it just 10 minutes away from Sydney International Airport via Moxy’s distinctive pink airport shuttle bus, a welcoming sight for arriving guests. Additionally, the hotel provides easy access to Sydney’s bustling Central Business District (CBD) and iconic attractions, all while being surrounded by a vibrant neighborhood offering excellent shopping and delectable dining options right at the hotel’s doorstep.
Architecture, Design, and Amenities
Moxy Sydney Airport draws inspiration from the industrial and art-deco heritage of Mascot, a theme that comes to life through its stylish interiors. Canadian interior designers MAED. COLLECTIVE have skillfully crafted an environment where new experiences await at every turn. The hotel’s exterior is adorned with a striking public art mural, an abstract creation by local artist Elliott Routledge, renowned for his distinctive designs. Routledge has also contributed a sculpture celebrating Moxy’s spirited “Play On” ethos, becoming a focal point on level four, capturing the imagination of fun-loving guests and locals alike.
The lobby, designed as a multifunctional work and interactive social space, centers around the hotel bar, where guests are welcomed with a complimentary “Get Moxy” signature cocktail during check-in. Within the lobby, the Living Room provides a relaxed communal area adorned with a curated collection of eclectic and nostalgic pieces, including a 1970s photobooth and reclaimed vintage lounge chairs.
Chic Bedrooms with Modern Amenities
The hotel’s industrial-chic bedrooms blend functionality and flexibility with edgy detailing. These rooms are designed to maximize space, featuring modular furniture, including Moxy’s signature Stellar Works foldable workspace desks and chairs, as well as smart features such as peg walls that allow guests to adapt the room to their needs. Tech-savvy touches include motion-activated LED lights, keyless entry, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, and complimentary Wi-Fi, along with a retro phone that offers guests the option to listen to a themed bedtime story for a unique and stylish slumber.
Bold artwork by Sydney creator, Evi O, graces the bedroom walls, offering an abstract perspective on Mascot’s historical market gardens and renowned local Australian fauna. Room options range from stylish king and queen sleepers to twins and quad bunks, perfect for families and groups. For guests looking to stay active, there’s a 24/7 gym equipped with an iconic Moxy pink boxing bag, and Moxy bikes are available for rent for those eager to explore the local area.
Eat, Drink, and Play
Moxy Sydney Airport’s new drinking and dining concepts are designed to be unpretentious and laid-back yet modern and stylish, contributing to Mascot’s vibrant social scene. During the day, Bar Moxy serves as a workspace and a place to connect, transitioning into a social hub at night, featuring some of Sydney’s top DJ talent. Partnering with local brands like Archie Rose and Young Henry, guests can select from an extensive menu of cocktails, wines, and local brews. In the evenings, guests can indulge in the “Pimp My Pita” menu, offering fresh and flavorful Australian street food-inspired dishes.
Taking inspiration from the iconic Australian Milk Bar, the hotel’s streetside cafe, Little Baxter, offers grab-and-go bites or a cozy space for extended stays. Little Baxter proudly features signature blends and single-origin coffees from Marrickville’s Double Roasters, perfectly complemented by daily baked pastries from local artisan baker, Sonoma. For guests seeking convenience without sacrificing flavor, Moxy Pick-Ups offers 24/7 grab-and-go snacks and beverages.
