Moxy Hotels, a distinctive member of the Marriott Bonvoy’s extensive collection of 31 remarkable hotel brands, has proudly unveiled its latest venture – Moxy Sydney Airport. This marks the brand’s exciting debut into the Australian market, promising to captivate the spirits of both the youthful and the young-at-heart. Rooted in the brand’s commitment to immersive experiences, the hotel takes a bold step in redefining the conventional hotel stay by infusing it with lively guest interactions and vibrant, sociable service.
Conveniently nestled in Mascot, a bustling suburb located in the Inner-South of Sydney and adjacent to the Sydney Domestic Airport precinct, this newly established 301-bedroom hotel welcomes travelers with Moxy’s signature pink airport shuttle bus. Designed to cater to the modern traveler’s needs, Moxy Sydney Airport offers seamless accessibility from Sydney’s vibrant CBD and iconic landmarks. The surrounding Mascot neighborhood adds to the allure, presenting guests with a tantalizing blend of exceptional shopping and delectable dining experiences just steps away from the hotel’s entrance.
In the words of Sean Hunt, Area Vice President of Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific for Marriott International, “We have been unwaveringly committed to introducing innovative lifestyle brands to Australia that resonate with the evolving preferences of contemporary travelers. The arrival of Moxy’s disruptive hotel experience at Sydney Airport effectively accomplishes this goal, heralding a thrilling new chapter for Marriott International in the region.”
A Fusion of Architecture, Design, and Amenities
The culmination of a partnership between RF Corval and KS Hotels & Resorts, Moxy Sydney Airport boasts interior aesthetics meticulously crafted by renowned Canadian interior designers MAED. COLLECTIVE. The design philosophy infuses fresh experiences into every nook and cranny of the hotel. The exterior facade is adorned with a captivating public art mural, a creation by local artist Elliott Routledge, acclaimed for his distinctive, abstract artistry. Adding to the artistic milieu, Routledge’s sculpture takes center stage on the fourth level, embodying Moxy’s “Play On” spirit, engaging both inquisitive guests and local residents alike.
Stepping into the lobby, one is immediately greeted by exposed ceilings, wrought iron beams, and organic materials that evoke the airy ambiance of a converted warehouse, a nod to Mascot’s historic factory structures. Serving as a versatile communal space, the lobby revolves around the hotel bar, where guests are welcomed with the signature “Get Moxy” cocktail upon check-in. Within this vibrant space, guests can also unwind in the Living Room, a relaxed gathering area adorned with a curated assemblage of eclectic and nostalgic artifacts, including a vintage 1970s photobooth and repurposed lounge chairs.
Elegance and utility converge in the hotel’s chic bedrooms. Thoughtfully designed to optimize space, the rooms feature modular furniture, including Moxy’s iconic foldable workspace desks and chairs from Stellar Works. Clever design elements like peg walls empower guests to tailor the room to their preferences. The tech-savvy touches are equally noteworthy, featuring motion-activated LED lighting, keyless entry, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Adding a touch of nostalgia, a retro phone is available for guests to enjoy themed bedtime stories.
Captivating artwork by Sydney artist Evi O adorns the bedroom walls, narrating Mascot’s history with an abstract portrayal of the area’s historic market gardens and iconic Australian wildlife. The accommodation options span from stylish king and queen sleepers to twins and quad bunks, ensuring comfort for families and groups. Fitness enthusiasts can break a sweat in the 24/7 gym, complete with the signature Moxy pink boxing bag, or explore the locale on a Moxy bike.
Culinary Delights and Social Vibes

Bar Moxy emerges as a daytime oasis for work and connection, seamlessly transitioning into a lively social hotspot as night falls, featuring top DJ talent from Sydney. The collaboration with local brands such as Archie Rose and Young Henry brings forth an extensive selection of cocktails, wines, and local brews. Evening revelers can indulge in the innovative “Pimp My Pita” menu, a celebration of fresh and flavorsome Australian street food.
Paying homage to the iconic Australian Milk Bar, the Little Baxter cafe at the hotel’s streetside beckons with grab-and-go bites and provides a warm and inviting space for those seeking a leisurely respite. Dedicated to excellence, Little Baxter proudly presents signature blends and single origins from Marrickville’s esteemed Double Roasters, complemented by daily baked pastries from local artisan baker Sonoma. For a convenient snacking option, Moxy Pick-Ups offers 24/7 access to grab-and-go snacks and beverages.
Meetings and Events with a Twist
The hotel’s versatility extends to its event spaces, encompassing five distinctive meeting studios that cater to private gatherings. These include the captivating ArtHouse, a boardroom that breaks away from convention, adorned with contemporary Australian artwork curated by a local art gallery. Other options, such as Saint Cloche and The Record Room, draw inspiration from Australia’s rock ‘n’ roll era, with an alfresco option available on the Moxy Terrace.
Michelle Scott, General Manager at Moxy Sydney Airport, reflects on the choice of Mascot as the hotel’s location, stating, “Mascot, with its vibrant transit and industrial history, has witnessed transformative moments in Sydney’s evolution. Hence, it serves as the perfect setting for Moxy’s inaugural hotel in Australia.
