Following the opening of Moxy Times Square, we designed the amenities at Moxy Chelsea. The hotel’s restaurant, lounge, and rooftop have been conceived as places of discovery, surprise, and rejuvenation—Frances Hodgson Burnett’s “The Secret Garden” meets Milan’s Villa Necchi Campiglio. Tucked into the bustle of Manhattan’s historic Flower District, guests encounter a botanically inspired design and crafted romance seen through a thoroughly modern lens.
Layers of rich color, material, pattern, and form combine to create a unique design unseen before in New York. Together these elements appeal to today’s youthful global traveler or sophisticated city insider who craves a contextual sense of place as well as escape. The resulting design cocktail creates a highly sophisticated and curated environment embracing today’s multi-tasking, multi-communicating, multi-experiential world.
The 349-key hotel features exquisite craftsmanship and unexpected details at every turn, from the ground floor Italian restaurant that feels like a modern interpretation of a secret spot off of a narrow side street in Rome, to the indoor-outdoor rooftop bar that celebrates views of the Empire State Building and New York City skyline. The rooftop is the physical and spiritual apex of the hotel, offering both a refuge and prospect from a lush interior landscape with enthralling art installations specific to the Garden District.
