Wayfarer TV exclusive: Inside Marriott’s flagship Moxy hotels in New York City

by James Wilkinson

Marriott International’s lifestyle brand Moxy has been on a rapid global expansion in recent years, with new hotels popping up right across the globe.

Two of the best – the 349-room Moxy Chelsea and 612-room Moxy Times Square – can be found in New York City and they have helped elevate the brand to a new, ultra-cool level.

When you walk into the 35-story tall Moxy Chelsea, you could be forgiven for thinking you have walked into a florist given that’s what the lobby shop is, rather fitting, given the hotel is located in the city’s Flower District.

Over at Moxy Times Square, you’ll find one of the city’s best and largest indoor/outdoor rooftop bars that offers incredible views of the iconic Empire State Building.

Both hotels have helped pushed the boundary from both a design and hospitality standpoint for the brand and to find out more about the properties – and a sneak peak into the city’s newest Moxy in the East Village – WAYFARER Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Gregory Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to Moxy Chelsea, Moxy East Village and Moxy Times Square Area General Manager, Gary Thomas.

A United Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner


United Airlines flies daily to New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport from across the globe, with many aircraft now featuring the airline’s new Polaris Business Class suite.

Each United Polaris Business Class suite-like pod (available on selected Boeing 777, 787 and 767 aircraft) features direct access to the aisle, a 180-degree flat-bed that measures 6’6” and 23 inches wide with infinite seat recline options and one-touch lumbar support, ample storage, multiple surfaces that enable passengers to dine while working, universal A/C power as well as 2-USB ports, a 16-inch high-definition entertainment screen, electronic privacy dividers for seats in the center of the cabin, mood lighting and an illuminated ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign.

Additionally, a new marble-topped bar unit offers customers in business class a place to grab a mid-flight drink or snack.

The airline says this new seat “represents the latest in the continued roll-out of United Polaris, the airline’s most significant product transformation in more than a decade, featuring a reimagined, sleep-enhancing experience for intercontinental travellers”.

United is fast becoming one of the world’s leading airlines for business and luxury travellers, thanks to the new Polaris suites, as well as new lounges and routes across the world.

In an exclusive interview, United Airlines’ Director of Premium Services, Alexander Dorow, talks to WAYFARER Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, in Chicago about the new Polaris Lounges across the United States, the new onboard product in Business Class and Premium Plus and much more.
