The Rockwell Group designed hotel (and the fab new Cathedrale restaurant) was very lively last week. The hotel was filled with millennial business travelers who seemed to be ecstatic about the place as they checked in and enjoyed Happy Hour. Kudos to all involved.
The interior design is boiler-plate millennial, i.e., eclectic vibe, art installations (by Michael Sanzone), outdoor space, lots of room for co-working and hanging out. Rooftop bar and lounge opening in 2020.
Cathedrale, the restaurant in the hotel, is spectacular. It was conceived by the Tao Group’s Chef/Partner Ralph Scamardella, in collaboration with Executive Chef Jason Hall. The food is French-Mediterranean.
Room rates at the Moxy run in the $400 range but seem to be lower on the weekends which suggests their guests will primarily be the young business travelers.
The one downside, from my perspective, are the stairs. The lobby and the restaurant are both at basement level. It feels congested getting into and out of the hotel.
