New hotel debuts in Uptown Dallas with restaurant-cafe and rooftop bar
Canopy by Hilton, Hilton's lifestyle hotel brand, has opened its first hotel in Texas: the Canopy by Hilton Dallas Uptown.
Owned and developed by Dallas-based The Javelin Group, the newest Canopy by Hilton is smack in the center of Uptown, at 2950 Cityplace West Blvd., at the intersection of Oak Grove Road, kind of where the golf range used to be.
The hotel features design elements that evoke the history of Uptown, including vintage bricks from McKinney Avenue and a refurbished front-piece of the M-Line Trolley.
The hotel also features two food and beverage options for guests and locals alike:
Canopy Central Café, housed in the lobby, is a European-style café serving an artisanal-style breakfast that transitions into an all-day lunch and dinner menu, featuring dishes such as flatbreads and open-faced sandwiches.
Upside West Village is a rooftop bar and lounge offering unparalleled views of downtown Dallas. Upside boasts a mixology program by Proprietors LLC, the team behind the famed Death & Co bars, with innovative craft cocktails, local and craft brews, and a high-end wine list by the glass or bottle.
The food menu features small bites and shared plates, such as citrus salmon tartare and spicy chicken bravas. It's open from 4 pm until midnight daily, and has a separate elevator entrance from the hotel.
Gary Steffen, global head of Canopy by Hilton, says in a release that the company was won over by the robust neighborhood.
"We chose Dallas' Uptown district for our first Texas property and fourth in the U.S. because of the vibrant, historic, and community-focused neighborhood," Steffen says. "The proximity to endless dining, shopping, and entertainment options will position Canopy as a natural and convenient choice for Dallas visitors."
The hotel features 150 "Just-Right" rooms, designed to provide a modern hotel experience, as well as to immerse each guest into the neighborhood culture.
Each guestroom is designed to be a true reflection of Dallas through handcrafted furniture, Uptown-inspired artwork, and residential amenities such as cooling mattresses, sliding barn doors, and Nespresso machines.
There are also two suites, starting at 830 square feet, with the twee names of Travis and Cole, which feature separate living areas, balconies, and upgraded furnishings.
The hotel also has 3,500 square feet of flexible meeting space with views of the Dallas skyline for corporate, private, and wedding events.
Canopy by Hilton Dallas Uptown is also dog-friendly, as part of the brand's Paws in the Neighborhood initiative. At check in, each four-legged guest receives a welcome gift — a biscuit, maybe probably — and the human guest who is paying the bill receives a pastry from Bisous Bisous bakery in Uptown.
