Moxy East Village is a new four-star hotel in New York’s East Village neighborhood, themed after its vibrant culture. The hotel features clear nods to rock and roll, street art, and other East Village countercultures.
As part of the Marriott Bonvoy family, Moxy East Village is a great option if you want to earn or redeem points during your stay.
I spent a night in an 11th floor Queen Room, which was small, yet comfortable. The historic decor, bustling common areas, and great location were the real draw.

New York City’s East Village has long enjoyed a gritty and rebellious history. Located directly across from Webster Hall, a music venue that helped contribute to that reputation, the brand new Moxy East Village takes inspiration from its surroundings, with nods to the cultural movements and counterculture for which the neighborhood is known.
While the Chelsea location has more of a botanical theme (read our full review here), Moxy East Village channels rock and roll and avant-garde street art, which can be found throughout the hotel.
Current rates start at $185 midweek and rise to around $299 on weekends and holidays, with room configurations including Queen, Queen with Daybed, Double Double, and Quad Bunks.
I spent a night in a Queen Room, which was comped for review purposes, and found the hotel to have all the amenities needed for a comfortable and hospitable stay.
While it just opened its doors a few months ago and is still finding its way, I think the hotel has the potential to become a favorite for travelers looking for good value and a unique experience in a locally loved neighborhood. As part of the Marriott family, you can also redeem and earn Marriott points here.
