LONDON

Moxy Hotels launched its first hotel in London, the Moxy London Excel. The property is near the ExCeL London convention center and London City Airport, making it a good fit for groups looking to meet in the area.

The 164-room hotel features the combination of bold design and affordable style. The interiors fuse refined and raw materials, organic and linear lines, and shared spaces. The contemporary lobby's modern furniture invites guests to relax, pick up a book from the Moxy library, connect and catch up with friends or retreat to the gym.

"Moxy Hotels is on a mission to reinvent traditional hospitality with lively communal spaces and an energetic crew that helps Fun Hunting guests enjoy themselves whether at work or play," said Vicki Poulos, global brand director, Moxy Hotels. "We are excited to debut Moxy Hotels in London – a fun, social and modern city."

Moxy London Excel's Living Room is the center of activity, giving guests fun ways to work and play hard. Sealed concrete floors, walls lined with intriguing art and fun references to local culture including artistic beer jugs displayed on the walls are complemented by ambient lighting and comfortable accents of color. The Living Room also features abundant power and USB outlets, and furiously fast and free Wi-Fi for ultimate connectivity.

The hotel's 164 contemporary guest rooms, ranging from Standard to Family size, are outfitted with sound-reducing walls, 42" LCD flat screen televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi, abundant USB ports, comfortable bedding and deep-seated armchairs. Every bedroom makes a statement with a fun floor to ceiling art piece.

The property features one meeting room with additional space at the adjacent ExCeL London convention center.
