MCLEAN, Va. – January 30, 2018 – Canopy by Hilton, Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) lifestyle hotel brand announces development plans for Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown. The developer and owner is locally based Scenic Capital Advisors, a private real estate investment firm founded by Richard Singleton. The property, which is scheduled to break ground in June 2018 and open in January 2020, will provide a comfortable stay for guests in search of a unique urban oasis and upbeat city culture in the heart of West 6th Street. Additionally, the hotel offers abundant amenities and is only a few minutes walk from several of Austin’s high profile employers such as Google, Facebook, Wholefoods/Amazon, GSDM, and Cirrus Logic.

Following the brand pillars, Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown will be a natural extension of the neighborhood, inspired and influenced by its local surroundings. Guests of the property can expect a strong sense of place, defined by urban activity and authentic materials inspired by the history and creative culture of Austin.

Located at 612 West 6th Street, the hotel will have 140 rooms including five suites, an intimate guest lobby and a relaxed, open-air courtyard sanctuary that connects to a full service restaurant and bar that integrates with the West 6th entertainment district. Amenities also include an elevated pool deck with excellent views of the street scene and downtown Austin.

“Canopy by Hilton fits seamlessly into the Austin Downtown District,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “Known for a dynamic pop-art and music scene, the Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown property will offer guests a truly fresh and local Austin experience while establishing a strong new identity for this classic neighborhood.”

Led by Lake/ Flato Architects, the hotel design team includes interior design firm, Seifert Murphy, and landscape architects, Hocker Design Group. “We wanted to deliver a project that both compliments the neighborhood while also elevating the West 6th Street district,” said Rick Singleton, principal at Scenic Capital Advisors. “We chose architects and designers who understand Canopy’s neighborhood-centric concept and would be able to create a hotel with a unique look intrinsic to the neighborhood and streetscape.”

Connected to the street and open to the neighborhood community as well as hotel guests, the courtyard functions as a haven from the hustle and bustle of West 6th Street’s high-energy nightlife. Comfortable seating within the courtyard will be surrounded by natural materials, greenery and water to capture the sense of Austin’s natural environment. Framing the courtyard, Canopy Central, the bar/lounge, and restaurant, will offer guests a variety of welcoming and intimate spaces including a sidewalk café, comfortable bar/lounge, cozy outdoor fireplace and reclusive guest retreat. Perched above street level, the pool deck will serve as an elevated front porch, complete with poolside loungers and a pavilion with full service bar to create a community space suitable for small gatherings and private events. Additionally, a fitness center on the lobby level will be available for guests.
