Moxy Melbourne South Yarra will open in the heart of Melbourne’s lively South Yarra neighbourhood at 30-32 Claremont Street. Guests will be a short walk from Chapel Street - Melbourne’s trendy shopping and entertainment strip - and South Yarra Station. From there, guests can easily navigate the city’s major tourist attractions, including the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne Cricket Ground and the the city’s celebrated restaurant, bar and arts scene in the Central Business District.

Moxy Melbourne South Yarra will feature various live/work/play spaces, including a bar, gym, co-working space and meeting studio, as well as a rooftop bar overlooking the city skyline with access to a large veranda.

“The next generation of travelers is seeking more than a comfortable bed and room-service burger. They want to stay in hotels with an approachable price point that offer bold, contemporary design and hyper social experiences that tap into the local culture,” said Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, Marriott International. “Moxy is the perfect fit for the curious and adventurous, and I’m thrilled we’ve found the right location and partners to bring this brand to Australia.”
