White Lodging announced Justin Weeks as the Moxy Louisville Downtown’s general manager. Scheduled to open in fall of 2019, Moxy Louisville Downtown is the first Moxy hotel In Kentucky and is specifically designed for a new generation of travelers – fun hunters – who are looking for a hotel environment that allows them to have an experience on their own terms.
Weeks recently relocated to Louisville from eastern Pennsylvania, where he held the position of assistant general manager at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront. Prior to that, he gained experience as director of food and beverage at the Sheraton Great Valley, assistant general manager at the Wayne Hotel, and food and beverage manager at The Radnor Hotel, among other roles.
“Justin has the passion and experience to bring the Moxy brand to life for our guests and associates every day,” said Brian Perkins, regional vice president at White Lodging.
Moxy Louisville Downtown brings 110 cozy and tech-savvy rooms to Whiskey Row. Rooms are complete with plush platform beds, peg walls instead of closets for ultimate flexibility, motion sensor lighting and all the right tech for in-room entertainment, including 49-inch LED TVs, abundant power and USB outlets.
“I am grateful to continue my career at White Lodging with the opening of Moxy Louisville Downtown,” says Weeks. “Downtown is missing a brand like Moxy and I look forward to intruding guests to fun, adventure and unique experiences that you cannot get anywhere else.”
The Moxy Louisville Downtown will feature Zombie Taco and Bar Moxy on its ground-floor level. Bar Moxy is a playful bar that also operates as the hotel’s front desk. Bar Moxy will have a curated music program with activations including spinning DJs. The bar will be the place to drink, eat and socialize where the energy will build throughout the day – for guests of the hotel and locals alike.
Zombie Taco is a food truck-inspired concept with global flavors serving tacos, healthy bowls, burritos, and other fresh, made-to-order items for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night. This is the concept’s second location after opening to rave reviews and national recognition in Chicago in 2018.
