Hotel Review: Moxy NYC Times Square

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

I recently shared how I was Embarking on the Marriott Bonvoy Platinum Challenge, where I’d need to stay 16 nights within 90 days of enrolling to earn Marriott Platinum Elite Status. As I was mattress running in New York City, my next stop was the the Moxy NYC Times Square.

The Moxy Times Square is located in the Garment District, which is just South of Times Square. The hotel has 612 guest rooms and is a Marriott Category 5 property with free night awards starting at 35,000 points per night for a standard award.

As I was on a mattress run and looking to book some cheap stays, I heard that this hotel sells crash pads for $99 a night. In order to be eligible you need to head up to the Magic Hour bar, make any purchase and then go downstairs where you can check at the front desk to see if they have any rooms left and if so it’s yours!

Bottom Line

As I haven’t stayed at a Moxy hotel before, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I was fortunate that I was able to score a room for $99, and knew the rooms were small.

I didn’t realize that only the crash pads for $99 have a single twin bed, that the rooms sold on their website are slightly larger starting at 150 square feet with either a double or king bed, so if you’re staying here you booking online, you won’t be in nearly as small as room I stayed in.

Another cool feature about this property is they have a closet on every floor called “The Stash”, which is where many extra housekeeping items are including extra pillows, blankets, tooth brushes etc. are and all you need is your room key to access it and then you can help yourself. It’s a quite a nice concept if you need to grab something and don’t want to wait for it to be delivered.

  1. Is it just me or are the Moxy mattresses terrible? Normally the Low end Marriott —Fairfield, Spring Hill Suites etc. — mattresses are just fine. Now I’ve only stayed at airport Moxy’s in Europe —CDG and MUC —and the mattresses felt like they were a Giant sack filled with straw. Otherwise I was fine with the Moxy concept for a low end hotel.
