White Lodging will build its third Moxy hotel and the first one in Texas. The 162-room Moxy Austin will open in late 2020 alongside the University of Texas at Austin campus.
The communal space on the ground floor of the hotel will serve as the hub, offering ways to work and play. The shared spaces will include White Lodging’s food-truck inspired 24-hour taco concept, Zombie Taco, and pick-up bites in the lobby, game tables in the public space, and an interactive digital guestbook that streams Instagram images and videos from Moxy guests around the globe. Bar Moxy doubles as the hotel’s physical check-in. Moxy Austin will also feature an open-air patio complete with lounge seating and fire pits.
White Lodging currently operates Moxy Chicago and is in the process of opening Moxy Louisville Downtown this fall. White Lodging owns and/or operates 12 other hotels and eight restaurants or bars in the Austin market. It’s also developing the 613-room Austin Marriott Downtown; The Otis Hotel, part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection; and AC Hotel in Austin’s campus district. The Otis and AC Hotel are scheduled to open in fall of this year, and the Marriott is scheduled to open in summer 2020.
