First time booking a stay at a Moxy. Was really excited about seeing a different type of hotel from your typical stay. And boy did they not disappoint. Probably the BEST experience I’ve ever had a hotel. I love Marriott’s but the staff here took the cake. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The room was so clean and nice.

Probably the BEST experience I’ve ever had a hotel. I love Marriott’s but the staff here took the cake. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The room was so clean and nice. The hotel was so clean as well. The bar made such good food and drinks. I will 100% be back! Read less

Currently sitting at the bar and I'm annoyed...i Came in for drinks with my partner to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. The waitress with the rainbow colored wig was very rude from the start of the interaction. Absolutely No greeting, very short tempered and just all around rude. Basically gave "what do you want energy" I went to grab a menu to LOOK at the food options (not even to eat just because I'm curious and as a follow yelper I wanted to upload an updated menu. As well as just wanted to know for future visits. We have a dinner reservation after this so I'm not even trying to eat) before I could even TOUCH the menu she snakily replied "We're not serving food anymore!" It rubbed me the wrong way. It's a way to say "no" without being rude. Which is a shame because I live in the area and have been saying I wanted to visit this property because it's always packed and seemed lit. Definitely wont be coming back here. And you shouldnt either unless you want to be treated like trash. P.S. I saw two roaches while waiting on our tab. And if there are roaches out in the bar area on Thursday nite with loud music playing & large groups of people around there are typically more. STAY AWAY FROM THIS LOCATION! Read less

Where do I even begin with the nightmare I have gone through during my stay here for a business trip. The cleaning staff (male) stole my Valentino gym shoes with the box from my room. The customer service is so bad it's comical. I've spent hours on the phone trying to get ahold of management for the staff to say (multiple calls a day) the managers are in meetings / just stepped out. The front desk has hung up on me more times than I can count. All I was trying to do was get a hold of a manager to let them know that about their staff and their sticky fingers. Mind you the rooms are so tiny you can't even hide a thing anywhere. Finally after weeks of calling, I was able to get the owners name (Wei Ng) and email during one of the calls. I had a male voice calling because they knew my phone number by that point. The owner Wei Ng responded to the first email and gave me Marriott points and agreed to compensate back for the stolen shoes. It's now been 3 weeks since Wei's last response and have yet to be compensated for my shoes and still no reply from any email. Not one person from the hotel has contacted me back to resolve this issue. Wei Ng, Melissa Golub, and Gilbert Langsi were all on the email chain. Not one of them has responded to compensate me as they stated. Read less

Had a weekend trip planned to DC for Memorial Day weekend with my boyfriend and we decided to stay at the moxy. We are from New York and we were under the impression that this moxy would be held to the same standard as the NY location. All in all.. it was not. We checked in at 11pm and left at midnight.

Had a weekend trip planned to DC for Memorial Day weekend with my boyfriend and we decided to stay at the moxy. We are from New York and we were under the impression that this moxy would be held to the same standard as the NY location. All in all.. it was not. We checked in at 11pm and left at midnight. When we arrived to the hotel the lobby smelt like a baby’s diaper. The woman who checked us in was on a phone call with a friend and was so unwelcoming and couldn’t be bothered with our presence. We head up to our room and the hallways are filthy. The carpets looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in ages. We get to our room to find the room is not only a literal shoe box… but there was a live cockroach on the floor. When we reported it to the woman at the front desk she asked what we did with the cockroach… like she was expecting us to exterminate it for them. All in all we ended up not being refunded for the first night of our stay despite the room being uninhabitable. Will not be returning to the moxy location for another stay and HIGHLY recommend staying anywhere else. Read less

Checking in is weird as you check in at the bar while ppl order drinks. The room is extremely small. The room was dirty and was told they were unable to relocate me as they were full instead of having someone come and clean. There is an awesome coffee shop next door as well as various shops and restaurants in walking distance. Just the… Read more
Checking in is weird as you check in at the bar while ppl order drinks. The room is extremely small. The room was dirty and was told they were unable to relocate me as they were full instead of having someone come and clean. There is an awesome coffee shop next door as well as various shops and restaurants in walking distance. Just the uncleanliness was my issue. Next time I’ll stay at the embassy suite across the street. Oh the valet was great!!! The sweets man ever!! He was a joy ! Read less
