The former venue, known for one of the best arenas to watch a boxing match in the world, will rise again as a hotel and conference facility in North Philadelphia. This is also be the first major hotel to be located north of Vine street.
The $25+ million project will be home to Marriott’s new Moxy brand. The 140-room hotel will bring a lifestyle experience to a new level. Influenced by its boxing and cultural significance, this will be the best hotel to play and stay in Philadelphia. Construction is expected to start in the second quarter of 2019.
