Moxy Houston Downtown opens

Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s edgy, stylish and playful brand for the young-at-heart is now open in Houston. The Moxy Houston Downtown located at 412 Main Street in downtown Houston is owned by Highrock Hospitality LLC. This is the first Moxy branded hotel as well as the newest lifestyle brand by Marriott to come to Houston. This new and community centered hotel believes in local partnerships, allowing guests to connect over shared experiences while having a whole lot of fun.

The uniquely innovative hotel is located in the “bar row” area of downtown Houston and on the Red Line of the METRORail, offering guests convenient access to the University of Houston, the Museum District, the Houston Zoo and NRG Stadium, home of the Houston Texans. The 118-room property is also in close proximity to Minute Maid Stadium, the William P. Hobby Airport, the Houston Aquarium, Wortham Theatre Center, Alley Theatre and numerous other entertainment, shopping and dining options.

“We are thrilled to introduce the high-energy, off-the-wall, boutique Moxy brand in the downtown Houston area,” Terry Hix, captain, Moxy Houston Downtown said in a statement. “Our experienced staff is excited to connect with guests in our collaborative-driven social areas and we look forward to developing deep relationships in the local community. We are revolutionizing the hotel industry one Moxy Cocktail at a time.”

The Moxy Houston Downtown’s exterior blends seamlessly into the landscape of the downtown area and offers some of the unique traits of Houston throughout the building. Upon arrival, guests will instantly notice the industrial chic look and aesthetic with polished concrete floors, exposed columns, open ceilings and collaborative spaces to hang out. Forget about the front desk and check-in at Bar Moxy, where you receive your room key and a complimentary cocktail. The tech-enabled space offers fast and free Wi-Fi and provides USB ports and electrical outlets throughout. The expansive lobby offers four zones whose intensity subtly shifts from calm to energetic:

  • Zone 1 – Library / Plug In: the peace and quiet zone for undisturbed solo or small group pursuits.
  • Zone 2 – The Welcome: part entry, part living room, part bar. Check in, check out, hang out.
  • Zone 3 – Beverage + Food: Coffeehouse by day, lively bar by night. The 24/7 self-service approach offers grab-and-go items or a hot entrée, convenient for every taste.
  • Zone 4 – Lounge: See and be seen. Music and media reinforce the Lounge as a daytime hangout and a nighttime party.   

Other amenities at the dog-friendly Moxy Houston Downtown include a well-equipped fitness center, two meeting rooms, and if you are looking for some fun, play a game of foosball, pool or ping-pong, ride TEX – the mechanical bull, or take a chance on the “Price is Right” wheel in the lobby. 

The hotel’s stylishly designed chic, modern bedrooms combine innovative details with functionality and are designed to maximize space and allow guests the flexibility to adapt the room to their needs. Guests can enjoy plush bedding and luxury bath products, motion-activated LED guidelights below the bed and backlit glass panels to add ambiance. Each guestroom is equipped with Moxy’s signature Stellar Works foldable workspace desks and chairs, as well as a leather lounge chair, walk-in rain showers, 42-inch flat screen TVs with the latest technology and complimentary Wi-Fi, allowing guests to stay plugged-in around the clock.
