Minneapolis welcomed its first hotel in decades this week, Marriott International’s Moxy Minneapolis Uptown. Owned by Minneapolis-based Graves Hospitality, the six-story, 125-bedroom hotel is designed locally by Collage Architects and Yellow Dog Studios. “At Moxy, we believe in the transformative power of play, and we’re excited to bring this vibrant spirit to Minneapolis Uptown as we invite our guests to come play with us,” said Vicki Poulos, Senior Global Brand Director, Moxy Hotels. “Designed for both the young and the young at heart, Moxy doesn’t take life too seriously, and is a perfect spot for both visitors to the city and locals to hang out, meet new friends and have some fun.”
Guests looking to live like a rockstar can stay in the 6th floor two-bedroom suite with an attached Green Room, perfect for entertaining up to 40 guests. The Green Room is decked out with expansive, comfy modular sofas, a private bar and floor-to-ceiling windows with a beautiful view overlooking bustling Uptown Minneapolis and the Downtown skyline. The suite features soaring ceilings, a private glass-bottom balcony and a round Japanese soaking tub, perfect for a relaxing morning after a long night out in Uptown.
Those seeking a bite can head to the Moxy bar for a wide selection of artisan flatbreads called ‘Moxy Flats,’ or pick up a fresh wrap or sandwich from the 24/7 grab-and-go cooler. Enviably situated in the heart of Uptown, guests of the hotel can meander down Lake Street to either Lyndale or Hennepin for the best of the vibrant neighborhood and indie dining. During summer months, Minneapolis’ thriving food truck scene is just steps from away from Moxy Minneapolis Uptown Hotel while a lobby garage door opens up to 3,000 miles of the best bike paths, restaurants and block parties in the Northern Hemisphere.
