East Washington Avenue has a little more moxie thanks to the new Moxy Hotel.

Moxy Madison Downtown, a Marriott-owned boutique hotel, is in the heart of the Capitol East District, around the corner from the Sylvee, and a stone’s throw away from Breese Stevens Field.

Fun, fresh, and with foosball, it is a welcomed addition to the isthmus. Here are some highlights.
