The First Moxy Hotel Opens in Texas As A Vibrant Hangout Close To Austin Campus

Moxy Austin-University has officially opened its doors as the first Moxy hotel to debut in Texas, tucked directly alongside the University of Texas at Austin campus. Owned by White Lodging and part of Marriott International’s experiential Moxy Hotels brand, the new destination allows spirited ‘Fun Hunters’ to revel in the playground that consists of a hotel, cocktail bar and 24-hour taco counter buzzing with positive energy and creativity.

The new playful Moxy hotel is designed for the young-at-heart who don’t want to be confined to a conventional hotel stay. Guests are given permission to break the rules and play on in a fun, vibrant setting featuring bustling indoor and outdoor social spaces, stylish and affordable guest rooms, and an energetic scene from day to night.

Just in time for the spring semester and steps from sorority and fraternity row, Moxy Austin-University offers 162 bedrooms featuring an industrial chic style with in-room features from plush platform beds to a fun-size work surface, and peg walls instead of closets.

And, it’s not only the hotel getting the attention at the corner of Guadalupe and West 26th streets.


Work Hard, Play Hard | All Day, All Night

The hotel’s first level features Bar Moxy – a 150-seat indoor ‘living room’ and outdoor ‘backyard’ space complete with lounge seating, fire features and an interactive guestbook that streams Instagram images and videos from Moxy guests around the globe. Upon arrival, guests can check in at the bar where they will be greeted with a complimentary ‘Got Moxy’ cocktail. The living room’s library is set up to chill out and get the creative juices flowing.

Hungry? The first level also features Zombie Taco, a 24-hour taco counter and walk-up window where customers can ‘live a little’ and experience taco dreams they never knew they had. From burritos to crisps and taquitos, Zombie Taco has everything you crave. This is the concept’s third location after opening to rave reviews and national recognition in Chicago in 2018 and Louisville in 2019.

The property will lean into its identity near the university with activations that will include a 21+ Moxy YOUniversity with a syllabus offering events and celebrations of campus life, fun and its guests (YOU). Discounts, specials and events will include Fraternity Fridays and Sorority Saturdays. Faculty and staff will also have their own dedicated night – Monday – to help start the week with a bang.

The nearly all-female leadership team at the Moxy Austin-University is captained by Lynn Snyder. Snyder was co-captain of Moxy Chicago’s opening team, which earned Marriott’s Opening of the Year award for 2018 and gained international attention for its experience and food.

“The space at Moxy is unlike any other near campus and we’re assembling the best team to bring the #PlayOn mantra to life in safe and unexpected ways,” said Snyder. “I’ll just say this: if you thought Austin was weird before, buckle up.”
