Downtown is about to get some Moxy.

The owner of the Sleep Inn at Court Square, Summit Management Corp., said Thursday it would convert the hotel to a new hotel brand, Moxy Hotels.

The building will get a $3 million renovation this winter. Moxy will open in early 2018, "resulting in a hotel concept unlike any other in Memphis today."

“Known for its grit, boldness, and knack for being distinctive, Moxy Memphis Downtown will be in walkable distance to the authentic sights, sounds and flavors of Memphis,” said Greg Averbuch, founder and president of Summit Management Corp. “Just as Memphis set the stage as the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, Moxy is breaking the mold in the hotel industry."

Moxy's 118 rooms have been designed with "fun-hunting travelers in mind." They are "tech-enabled" spaces with "abundant power and USB outlets, and furiously fast and free Wi-Fi." In-room televisions come with Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Bluetooth streaming, Pandora,and Crackle

Guests will have around-the-clock room service, access to a library, and collaborative workspaces, a bar, and lounge. Outside, the hotel will have a front porch theme "fitting nicely with the lively park atmosphere adjacent to Court Square."
