The Hotel Distil and Moxy Louisville Downtown opened on historic Whiskey Row, sharing the same building. Both hotels are both Marriott branded and operated by White Lodging.
Hotel Distil, an Autograph Collection Hotel, celebrates Louisville’s bourbon heritage. The 205-room hotel incorporates an original 1860’s era facade, which was saved following a fire in 2015, and was the original location and barrel house for J.T.S. Brown and Sons.
The homage to bourbon culture is subtle, but clear, as many of the design cues are taken from bourbon barrels and the distilling process, including wood tones, staves, black metal accents and copper fixtures.
Other cues are taken from Louisville's glass blowing community, including pre-Prohibition style globe light fixtures and blown glass flask art pieces.
The hotel has more than 11,000 square feet of event space including a 5,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom which can accommodate up to 500 people or be divided into three separate spaces.
Hotel Distil’s three other meetings rooms range from 775 square feet to 1,000 square feet while the 2,000-square-foot outdoor rooftop boasts an open-air, all-season terrace.
Revel, Hotel Distil.
The hotel’s three dining options include Repeal, a 72-seat oak-fired steakhouse, Bitters End, an open-air rooftop bar, complete with a retractable glass roof and The Barrel Room, a private 15-person space with a separate bar.
Moxy Louisville Downtown features social areas, 110 guest rooms, co-working spaces and a 24/7 taco counter.
The hotel features Bar Moxy on its ground-floor level, a bar that also operates as the hotel's front desk–with a complimentary cocktail upon check-in. Bar Moxy features a curated music program with activations including spinning DJs.
Located alongside Bar Moxy, Zombie Taco is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week food truck-inspired concept to serve Louisville's darkest taco desires. This is the restaurant concept's second location following its opening in Chicago in 2018.
The hotel will also house a resident mascot, Goose, a bulldog who will often be spotted in the lobby area.
The addition of these 315 rooms bring Louisville’s hotel inventory to 20,874, with 6,180 rooms in the city center adjacent to the 300,000 square foot Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC), which re-opened August 2018 after a $207 million dollar renovation.
