A dual-branded Marriott hotel to open by fall of 2019 in downtown Louisville

The development will include the independent Hotel Distil and a Moxy Hotel

A project by White Lodging, REI Real Estate Services, and Poe Companies, two new, yet distinctly different hotels will open in 2019 in the historic Whiskey Row neighborhood of downtown Louisville as part of a new development planned by a staple of the Louisville hospitality industry.

Located on Main Street, the development will feature two Marriott International branded properties—Hotel Distil, a boutique hotel that will be part of Marriott's Autograph Collection Hotels, and a Moxy Hotel, the enterprise's design-driven brand with more than 15 hotels in North America, Europe and Asia. The project is also due to contain multiple bars and restaurants. The hotels will be managed by White Lodging, their twelfth and thirteenth hotels in the Louisville market.

"With his vision and passion for Louisville, Steve Poe continues to reshape the downtown market and we are thrilled to participate in what we believe will be a game-changing hotel development for Whiskey Row," said Deno Yiankes, president and CEO of development at White Lodging.

Hotel Distil, an independent hotel affiliated with Autograph Collection Hotels, taps into the street's rich bourbon history. The 205-room property joins the portfolio of more than 100 Autograph Collection Hotels around the world—all independent, one-of-a-kind hotels. It will feature more than 7,500 square feet of elegant meeting space, a new restaurant concept, and rooftop bar with direct access to the street. The Moxy Hotel will feature a street-level restaurant and bar along with an additional rooftop terrace and event space.

The planned development marks the debut for the experiential Moxy Hotel in Louisville, boldly reinventing the lifestyle hotel experience in the Derby City.

Moxy Louisville's 110 bedrooms will feature platform beds, peg walls instead of closets, motion sensor lighting, 49-inch LED TVs, abundant power and USB outlets, along with fast and free Wi-Fi.
