Moxy Washington, DC DowntownWhy we love it: A fun and funky hotel that caters to the young and hip
- Instagrammable spots around every corner
- Spacious and comfy common areas with plenty of connectivity
- King, queen, and affordable bunk beds available
The fun begins at check-in at D.C.’s Moxy, when you’re handed your keys and a signature cocktail at the bar instead of at a stodgy old desk. The focus here is on productivity, meeting new people, and having a good time, which is reflected in the cheeky, photo-ready design of the lobby and bar. In the lobby, creative art installations and wall art by local artist Michael Crossett meld with concrete floors and exposed columns. A compelling video art installation by international artist Rahul Jhad, who won the hotel’s #BlankCanvas Competition, is hard to miss. There’s also ample plug-ins for personal devices and plenty of games like Jenga and foosball—and a mechanical toy horse that guests are encouraged to ride. A quiet “library zone” does exist but the lively bar might prove too distracting.
Rooms are small by design with glass-enclosed bathrooms—the common areas are where it’s at—but have functional details like pegs for hanging clothing and motion sensor lighting. There’s even a cozy bunk bed option for those looking to save a few bucks and room with a friend. For now, food is relegated to a grab-and-go option but still to come is the city’s first glass-enclosed rooftop bar, with food by the Baltimore-based Atlas Restaurant Group, set to open Summer 2019.
