Owned by Minneapolis-based Graves Hospitality, the six-story, 125-bedroom hotel, situated on the corner of Lake Street and Emerson Avenue, fully embraces modern fun-hunting travelers with its spirit, style and affordable price point.
“At Moxy, we believe in the transformative power of play, and we’re excited to bring this vibrant spirit to Minneapolis Uptown as we invite our guests to come play with us,” said Vicki Poulos, Senior Global Brand Director, Moxy Hotels. “Designed for both the young and the young at heart, Moxy doesn’t take life too seriously, and is a perfect spot for both visitors to the city and locals to hang out, meet new friends and have some fun.”
