Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand, has made its debut in Georgia with the opening of Moxy Tbilisi, bringing its characteristic vibrant, playful design and approachable service to this dynamic destination.
Boasting the style and spirit of a boutique hotel without breaking the bank, the 130-bedroom property is ideally located in Saarbruecken Square, offering easy access to Gallery Tbilisi Shopping Mall, MOMA Tbilisi, and the city’s business district, making it a perfect choice for business and leisure travellers alike.
“We are excited to bring Moxy’s playful spirit to Georgia,” said John Licence, VP Premium and Select brands at Marriott International Europe. “Tbilisi has proven to be one of the hottest travel destinations thanks to its vibrant social scene and fast emerging fashion industry, making it the perfect fit for Moxy and its fun-hunter guests.”
With Moxy next-gen traveller guests seeking experiential elements from their travel, Moxy Tbilisi will offer Moxy’s signature cocktail at check-in, spontaneous games in the lively communal spaces, and an energetic crew to bring out the fun in this spirited destination, giving guests something to rave about to their friends.
“Moxy flips the conventional hotel experience on its head, offering guests everything that they want and nothing that they don’t,” said Vicki Poulos, Senior Global Brand Director, Moxy Hotels. “We’re thrilled to be debuting the brand in Georgia, and look forward to welcoming guests and locals alike to our fun, communal spaces to take advantage of our programming and features that capture the spirit of the vibrant city of Tbilisi.”
Moxy’s fun, inclusive and youthful spirit is reflected in the combination of bold design and affordable style where communal engagement is at the centre of the experience. The interiors fuse refined and raw materials, organic and linear lines, and shared spaces. The Moxy experience kicks off with a bright, airy and buzzing lobby, featuring modern furniture that invites guests to relax, feast their eyes on the state-of-the-art video wall, or connect and catch up with friends in the ‘Plug and Meet’ gathering area. The bar is full-service and the hub of activity in the lobby – it also doubles as the hotel’s physical check-in, where guests are greeted with a complimentary ‘Got Moxy’ cocktail upon arrival.
Living Room #ATTHEMOXY
Moxy Tbilisi’s Living Room is the centre of activity, giving guests fun ways to work and play hard. Sealed concrete floors, walls lined with intriguing art and fun references to local culture are complemented by ambient lighting and accents of colour. The Living Room also features abundant power and USB outlets, and furiously fast and free Wi-Fi for ultimate connectivity. A high-energy yet cosy space for gatherings, special events or cocktails, the lounge plays host to eclectic upbeat music.
The hotel’s 130 contemporary bedrooms, ranging from Standard to Family size, are outfitted with sound-reducing walls, 42" LCD flat screen televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi, abundant USB ports, comfortable bedding and leather armchairs. Every bedroom makes a statement with a fun floor-to-ceiling art piece. The design is functional, flexible and uncluttered with simple, thoughtful touches including glass shelving and an open storage concept featuring a peg wall for ultimate flexibility when unpacking, in lieu of a traditional closet. Stylish bathrooms feature complimentary Muk toiletries, bright pink hair dryers, power showers and large mirrors alongside a spacious vanity area.
24/7 Dining #ATTHEMOXY
Moxy’s 24/7 B&F (Beverage & Food), smart and fun self-service concept gives guests access to what they want, whenever they want it. The Moxy dining area offers lots of options for food and drink including fresh juices and a coffee bar.
