Canopy by Hilton has added two new properties to the company's portfolio with the signings of Canopy by Hilton Tempe Downtown, University Area and Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown. The two hotels are expected to open in December 2019 and January 2020, respectively.
The 200-room Canopy by Hilton Tempe Downtown, University Area is in the heart of Tempe on University Drive, across the street from Arizona State University. Located five miles from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the property’s location will provide guests with access to many of the city’s shopping centers, culinary offerings, entertainment centers such as the Wells Fargo Arena, and local landmarks including Tempe Beach Park, Tempe Town Lake, Jaycee Park and Hayden Butte.
The hotel will span 14 floors and include a lobby-level café, a gym, more than 3,000 square feet of meeting space, a rooftop pool and terrace bar, cabanas and a fire pit. The hotel, which will be managed by Driftwood Hospitality Management (DHM), an affiliate of Driftwood Acquisitions & Development (DAD), is expected to break ground in May of 2018 and is slated to open its doors by December of 2019. This is Driftwood’s second Canopy by Hilton project; its first, the Canopy by Hilton West Palm Beach, broke ground in late 2017.
Located on West 6th Street, the Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown will have 140 rooms including five suites, a guest lobby, and an open-air courtyard sanctuary. The courtyard will connect to a full-service restaurant and bar that integrates with the West 6th entertainment district. Amenities also include an elevated pool deck with views of the street scene and downtown Austin.
Connected to the street and open to the neighborhood community as well as hotel guests, the courtyard will offer seating surrounded by natural materials, greenery and water to capture the sense of Austin’s natural environment. Canopy Central, the bar, lounge, and restaurant, will offer guests a variety of spaces including a sidewalk café, bar and lounge, and an outdoor fireplace.
The hotel’s elevated pool deck will have poolside loungers and a pavilion with a full-service bar, a space that will be used for small gatherings and private events. A fitness center on the lobby level will also be available for guests. Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown is scheduled to break ground in June 2018 and open in January 2020.
