PM Hotel Group Opens Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown in Texas

USA, Austin, Texas. July 06, 2020

Canopy by Hilton Austin Downtown is pleased to announce its grand opening on Wednesday, July 1. Situated at 604 W 6th Street, the six-floor, 140-room property provides a dynamic urban oasis for guests seeking to experience the city at the intersection of metropolitan living and a lively nightlife scene. The developer and owner is locally-based Scenic Capital Advisors, a private real estate investment firm founded by Rick Singleton, and the property's operations are managed by PM Hotel Group.

"Austin is known for its funky city culture, tech innovation, and oasis of outdoor activities and natural beauty, and we are looking forward to offering our guests a retreat at the center of it all," said Jeff Ossenkop, Chief Enthusiast (General Manager). "We're thrilled to introduce a new experience, especially for those who are seeking to satisfy a wanderlust spirit."

Canopy Austin encompasses 140 spacious, well-appointed rooms, including five suites, along with Canopy Central, the intimate guest lobby. A relaxed, open-air interior courtyard connects to Verbena, the locally curated, full-service restaurant and bar situated along the entertainment district of W 6th Street. Additional guest amenities include a terrace-level pool deck and bar with excellent views of the street scene and downtown Austin, a 24-hour fitness studio, and a transfer lounge providing guests luggage lockers and private changing cabins. Registered guests of the hotel will experience added value via a variety of complimentary services including access to a local beer, wine or spirits tasting each evening, priority access to the terrace-level pool deck and bar, and a courtesy welcome gift upon arrival.

Canopy Just-Right rooms are fitted with signature amenities, including Canopy Beds featuring the ZoneActive™ 5-Zone foam topper and Serta Cool Balance® technology, open closet systems with a built-in refrigerated drawer, a 55" television, Nespresso coffee maker, and smartphone connection for in-room amenities for maximum comfort and convenience. Canopy Austin also offers pet-friendly accommodations, a pet retreat dog walk area, and a premium amenity kit with their "Paws in the Neighborhood" program, a partnership with BARK, the makers of BarkBox.

Canopy Austin opens at a time when health and safety are more important than ever before. The hotel will participate in Hilton CleanStay, a new program that delivers an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection.

An homage to the city, Canopy Austin's design captures the unique sense of Austin's hill country setting imbued with the energy of West 6th Street. Lake Flato Architects, Seifert Murphy, STG Design, and Hocker contributed to the design of the project.

Guests seeking a taste of Austin's brimming culinary scene can experience Verbena, a full-service restaurant and bar by local chef Nic Yanes of Juniper and Uncle Nicky's, opening soon. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Verbena will offer a menu of approachable and hearty, yet healthy dishes, with Mediterranean, French, and Californian influences. The restaurant will also offer a morning grab-and-go counter serving locally roasted coffee, breakfast items, and pastries. In addition, Verbena has partnered with Proprietors LLC, an award-winning cocktail company behind acclaimed establishments like Death & Co. and Nitecap, to aid in developing a drink program with local mixology talent that emphasizes the use of fresh, local ingredients.

To celebrate and pay tribute to the street on which it sits, the hotel is welcoming its first guests with a special grand opening offer, inviting them to "Stay Sixth." The Stay Sixth promotion offers all guests a limited-time opportunity to add valet parking and a $50 daily food + drink credit for an additional $6 per night. This offer is valid on stays from July 9 through August 31, and is only available online at www.canopyaustindowntown.com.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
