Hilton Austin has begun a multimillion-dollar transformation initiative that will include a full renovation of the hotel’s lobby, public areas and meeting space, as well as the launch of two new restaurant concepts, a Starbucks and a flexible event venue. EDG Interior Architecture + Design has been tapped for the project that will begin in May and continue through the end of the year.
“This year is going to be an exciting year for our hotel,” said Robert Watson, general manager of Hilton Austin. “When we complete this endeavor, Hilton Austin will reflect the true culture and vibe of our city. These additions and improvements will also give us fresh and creative ways to meet the ever-changing needs of our guests and remind them where they are at every turn.”
Watson added that the project has been carefully planned in phases to minimize any inconvenience. “We hope our guests will enjoy being a part of our progress and share in our excitement as we bring each of these concepts and designs to life and secure our relevancy in the market,” he said.
