The hotel

On a city break with friends? Or a quick weekend away with the other half? Moxy Boston is perfect for a fun filled trip, bringing colourful party vibes to your stay. When you walk in you'll be greeted with the hotel's signature cocktail on the house in Bar Moxy, and if your room isn't ready yet, why not order some small plates and jump on the foosball table for a bit of competitive fun. When you get to your room, they're decorated simply with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city or Charles River. Throughout the rest of the hotel there's plenty of vibrant colours and fun artwork all around, and there's even a photobooth in the lobby for you to get some takeaway snaps as a souvenir! In terms of location, you're just a couple of minutes walk from the Subway station, so you can easily explore the area. There are plenty of theatre's close to the hotel too, so you can enjoy shows and performances to your hearts content.

I must say I was disappointed in the hotel. This is my first time in staying at a Moxy Hotel and probably my last time. At check in, not a real friendly reception (thought the ladies were from NYC!).

I must say I was disappointed in the hotel. This is my first time in staying at a Moxy Hotel and probably my last time. At check in, not a real friendly reception (thought the ladies were from NYC!). No explanations about the hotel and what was available within the hotel. Did get some coupons which were nice. Bed was not too comfortable, and the room got hot while sleeping. Pillows were very soft. At the Bar, they were out of a lot of things. Went for drinks with the coupon and they were out of the Sparkling Rose that was on the card. Latte machine was out of service each day. They were out of several items for breakfast and in their market. Did not find out they had a workout area until the day we left. No information about amenities in the room nor discussed at time of check in. I expect more from a Marriott Hotel like this. Read less

The Moxy was an eclectic hotel, which gave it a unique vibe! I also appreciate that upon arrival the staff gave us 3-$35 food vouchers to use during our stay!

The Moxy was an eclectic hotel, which gave it a unique vibe! I also appreciate that upon arrival the staff gave us 3-$35 food vouchers to use during our stay! There were two front desk employees that stood out because of their friendly personality and willingness to provide us with activity and restaurant recommendations. Their names were Ann and Sarah! The pillows were a little too soft for my preference, the food was fair and the staff in the cafe was mediocre, it appeared that they may have been short staffed. The food wait time was long! Overall, it was a good and different experience!😊 Read less

From the moment we checked in…which was honestly one of the easiest and most delightful check-in experiences EVER (huge shoutout and thank you to JAY!)…until the moment we left, the Moxy rocked!

Yes, the rooms are small and that didn’t even matter in the least. They were cleverly set up and the shower was amazing! Run, don’t walk to stay here!!! A true wow!!! Thank you, Moxy, for an awesome stay! Read less

Great service all around, especially from Mario! It was our 2nd time staying at Moxy Boston Downton and both we were greeted by friendly staff and were always nicely accomodated. My family and I had a blast! Clean rooms, nice city view, very well located, close to restaurants, parks and transportation.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Checked in on Monday night - check in was a breeze. They give you a free drink coupon and they give you coupons for $35 worth of food/drink for every night of your stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Checked in on Monday night - check in was a breeze. They give you a free drink coupon and they give you coupons for $35 worth of food/drink for every night of your stay. That is pretty great value. I primarily used it for either breakfast or bottles of water. Service is very cheerful and friendly. Internet was good. My room was on the 21st floor. Fantastic views from my corner room. I had 180 degree views of the Boston skyline, the river and Boston Commons. Loved the view. The room is small but that is to be expected for Boston. Great location as well. Tons of restaurants in the area. Now for the cons - as a business traveler - I felt that this hotel is for the younger generation, fun, party vibe rather than a business traveler. No work desk in the room. No closet in the room, no coffee maker, moisturizer, etc. This may be a great hotel for someone on vacation but its tough for a business traveler. They do have great service, a great and friendly bar / food area and a party vibe. Read less
