The Moxy Boston Downtown, with a height of 275 feet and 24 floors wrapped in a glass facade, is one of the new additions to the Boston skyline. In this review, we talk about its location, rooms, facilities, and if it is a good choice for you (or not).

Location of the Moxy Boston Downtown hotel. Please note: price will vary with different search parameters.
The Boston Theater District encompasses buildings such as the Boston Opera House, the Modern Theatre, and the Paramount Theatre. The previously mentioned structures also form part of the Washington Street Theater District, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
When here, you’re less than five walking minutes away from Chinatown. Additionally, if walking, seven minutes is all you need to reach Boston Common, America’s oldest city park.
If you are not renting a car or using a ridesharing service to get you from the airport to the hotel, there are public transit options that’ll take you to the Boston Theater District.
Moxy Boston Downtown – Valet Parking
The options for parking at the Moxy Boston Downtown are the following:
Valet Parking – $58.00 USD (price subject to change) per night with in-and-out privileges.
Parking Reservation Service – I have seen more and more people, especially from big cities, recommend apps such as Spot Hero to reserve parking in downtown areas. However, as it happens with ridesharing services, prices fluctuate depending on demand.

Places to eat:
Hotel Rooms in large cities are not known for being spacious. However, at the Moxy Boston Downtown, they’re doing all they can to maximize space and efficiency (at least in the Center Stage room where I stayed).
For example, the rooms have a small desk, a peg wall where you can hang your coat and accessories, and a chair near a Queen bed with a floor to ceiling window behind it. Yet, what I appreciated the most was the decent sized shower and bathroom.
Nonetheless, if you’re looking for a place with a functional kitchen or microwaves and mini-fridges, this hotel is not for you. Also, the hotel iron is shared with rooms on the same floor as you—something to keep in mind.
Facilities & Customer Service

After entering the hotel doors, you’ll notice this is not your typical hotel. There are ‘instagrammable’ spots everywhere, from colorful walls to the stylish hotel lobby.
When checking in, with your key, you get a voucher to use at the bar for a complimentary drink. The Moxy Hotels website states: “we don’t take ourselves too seriously.”; nonetheless, every employee I interacted with appeared to be enjoying its work but also taking their functions seriously.
Moxy Downtown Boston Lobby
- The Moxy Boston Downtown hotel is in an excellent location. It is close to many touristy spots, and also not far from MBTA Stations and Stops.
- For two people, the room and bathroom are a nice size, and I can only see the room size being an issue with bigger parties.
- The decoration in the rooms and through the hotel is stylish and modern.
- Because of the hotel’s height, there are some fabulous views of the Boston skyline from some of the rooms.
- The customer service was excellent.
- If you’re taking your own or renting a car, the parking fees will add up.
- No mini-fridge or microwave.
- No free breakfast.
