Moxy Hotels has opened a brand-new hotel in the heart of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Let’s take a look at the newest hotel under the Moxy umbrella.

Halifax Gets First Moxy Hotel in Canada

Moxy Halifax Downtown has 160 guest rooms and suites, all outfitted with 55-inch TVs and free Wi-Fi. True to the Moxy brand, all rooms are designed to maximize space, so you’ll find foldable workspace desks and chairs and peg walls to hang coats or jackets.

Amenities include the work-and-play Bar Moxy, more than 1,500 square feet of meeting space, and a 24/7 fitness center. This is the debut of the Moxy brand in Canada.

Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia, and Marriott pointed to the city’s culture and diversity, and it was “the perfect destination” for the Moxy brand.

“As we continue to grow our global portfolio, introducing the spirited Moxy brand to Canada with the opening of Moxy Halifax Downtown is a milestone we are excited to celebrate,” said Matthew Boettcher, Vice President of Distinctive Select Brand Portfolio, Marriott International.

Bottom Line:

Moxy Hotels is known for designing its hotels in a playful manner and giving guests ample common spaces to work and play. Falling under Marriott’s “Select” umbrella, you’ll find 125+ Moxy hotels in 25 countries.

Booking Moxy Halifax Downtown With Marriott Bonvoy Points

Moxy Halifax Downtown is now open for guests, which makes it easy to earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points at the property.

Cash rates at the property are dirt cheap — the cheapest night we saw this spring started at just $130 per night. Award nights are also affordable, starting at 20,000 points per night this spring. That’s a reasonable price, even if you don’t have a ton of points in your account.

Marriott Bonvoy points are some of the easiest hotel points you can earn, as programs like American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer to the program at a 1:1 ratio, sometimes with transfer bonuses.

 Marriott also offers a handful of co-branded credit cards. These come with sizable welcome bonuses (when you complete minimum spending requirements). While all come with some form of elite status, the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card has automatic Marriott Bonvoy Platinum Elite status!

Final Thoughts

Marriott Bonvoy loyalists now have another affordable option in Canada using Marriott Bonvoy points.

The Moxy Halifax Downtown has nice-sized rooms and decent amenities and is located in a prime area of town, making this an excellent choice for a budget stay in Nova Scotia!
