Moxy Hotels, a hotel brand of Marriott, on Wednesday announced the upcoming debut of Moxy Chattanooga in Fall 2018, promising to shake up the traditional hospitality experience for the city’s millennial-minded traveler. Developed by 3H Group Hotels and centrally located in Chattanooga’s exciting Southside, Marriott International's playful, experiential Moxy brand is built for fun.

For starters, guests check in at the hotel’s bar, and are greeted with a complimentary Got Moxy! Cocktail. The four-story, 108-room hotel features thoughtful design touches, inviting indoor and outdoor living rooms, 24/7 self-service beverage and food concept, plenty of plug-ins for personal devices, free and furiously-fast Wi-Fi, and the Moxy Digital Guestbook for streaming videos and pictures via Instagram. 

“We are excited to bring the vibrant Moxy Hotels to Chattanooga’s already booming Southside neighborhood and show the Scenic City what the brand is all about,” said Hiren Desai, CEO of 3H Group Hotels. “Moxy challenges the status quo and dares to bend the rules to deliver a new way of traveling, embracing the young and the young-at-heart with a stylish and spirited guest experience.”

Moxy offers a new way of traveling which is smaller in concentration, yet not a reduction in experience. The brand caters to today’s free-spirited traveler who is looking for a hotel with friendly service and premium comforts in an environment that allows them to connect with relevant and authentic local experiences. Moxy’s creative brand identity aims to engage business and leisure travelers with a warm, thoughtful and playful guest experience.
