You're going to have a hard time finding downhills only in Moab. The town sits in a valley, and all the trails are up from there. We always were on X-C bikes, so the downhill is the reward for the climb! You may be able to shuttle up to some, but access will be difficult as most trail heads are down along the Colorado river.
You're going to be blown away by the scenery! There are a few micro breweries in town with some pretty good local brews, but It's been over 10 years since I was there last, so I don't remember the names of them. Great bike shops in town as well. Have fun!
Poison Spider Mesa is a must do trail, as is Amasa Back. Porcupine Rim is awesome too.
...Actually every trail there is pretty amazing!!
