If you find yourself needing to stay in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Times Square (or simply prefer it that way), the Moxy can make it fun.
You'll find a splash of whimsy throughout the hotel, especially in the rooftop bar Magic Hour, which has a sort of sexy carnival theme and an excellent view of the Empire State Building. You can mini-golf in the midst of bosomed bunnies and drink a cocktail for six out of a mini gas pump, and take a selfie in front of shrubs cut just so to look like mid-coitus bears. If that's a bit much, or you'd rather avoid the inevitably rowdy late-night crowd, you can dine at seafood spot Legesea (go for the shellfish tower) or head to the second floor Bar Moxy, where you can grab a casual lunch or a drink and overlook the guests checking in below.
Speaking of checking in, you'll approach one of the standing desks arranged in a row, kind of like approaching the counter at an airport...in the future. Your room could easily be a magazine ad for a microapartment: These industrial-chic small-space solutions—pull-out nooks and crannies, hooks galore and hanging chairs, a mini-sink—are ones you'll want to take home with you. With free Wi-fi, a gym and pet-friendly rooms, you can go about life much as usual—just with a bit less square footage.
