Hotel brand Moxy, a part of Marriott Bonvoy, has announced plans to open a new hotel called Moxy Banff in the town of Banff, Alberta, Canada.
Located in the Canadian Rockies, the hotel is set to open in 2024 and has been developed in partnership with Canalta Hotels, a Drumheller-based company.
Canalta Hotels VP Brooke Christianson said: “While most hotels in Banff offer a traditional mountain hotel experience, Moxy Banff stands out from the crowd with its cool, vintage, mid-century modern vibes and unique guest experience.
“Moxy Banff is the result of a $30m renovation of Banff’s first commercial motor hotel, The Voyager Inn, originally constructed in 1964. Moxy Banff has a bold mid-century design anchored in the centre by Bar Moxy and flanked on both sides by expansive rundle stone walls and unique precast guest wings that float over the parkades.”
Canalta Hotels collaborated with Workshop/APD from New York City to create the hotel’s retro-inspired interior design.
The companies also joined forces with METAFOR Architecture from Calgary to update the building’s exterior.

Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a complimentary cocktail and can check in at the hotel’s retro bar, which features an upside-down bear with headphones.
Bar Moxy will provide access to a courtyard, offering hot pools and the option to lounge by fire, along with a fully restored ‘66 VW food truck serving après and all-day menu options.
The hotel will include a range of rooms with double bunks, toe-to-toe beds, kitchenettes and convertible suites.
Additionally, the hotel’s corridors will feature psychedelic carpets and globe fixtures.
Moxy Banff captain Sudeep Sandhu said: “Fun is what we do best, so it’s no surprise that we’ve integrated playful opportunities for guests into our programming.
“The Moxy Banff team will have scheduled activities for guests to enjoy and we aren’t afraid to throw in spontaneous, ‘you just had to be there’ options too. We can’t wait to welcome guests from near and far to experience the new hotel on the block.”
Moxy originated in Europe with the opening of Moxy Milan in 2014 and currently has more than 125 destinations worldwide.
