Hilton Austin today announced a $21 million upgrade to the hotel's 800 guest rooms, as well as the suites and executive lounge. Dallas-based Looney & Associates provided interior design for the sweeping changes.
The makeover also includes all new furnishings, soft goods, accessories and artwork in each of the hotel’s guest rooms and executive accommodations. The new look reflects Austin’s unique collection of cultures and styles, as well as its unique mix of venues geared to business and leisure travelers. Each room and suite offers a modern mix of elements that appeal to the sophisticated traveler. A variety of textures, along with a tonal color palette with vibrant accents, create a sense of user – friendly, contemporary comforts.
“We are extremely excited about our improvements and look forward to sharing them in a customer appreciation event this summer which will also celebrate our ten years of service," said Robert Watson, general manager, Hilton Austin. "These changes provide travelers the latest in luxurious serenity and state of the art conveniences, including a bedside energy management system that controls the rooms lighting and air conditioning/heating."
These improvements come on the heels of an extensive refurbishment of the hotels eighth floor pool deck in spring 2013. Changes include a new pool with cabanas, a resurfaced deck and the addition of the full service Skyline Pool Bar accented by new slate, wooden flooring and colorful Moroccan tile. The spacious deck offers a spectacular view of the Austin skyline and provides the perfect venue.
“Our goal was to keep guest convenience top of mind and make the process as much of a 'silent' renovation as possible,” said Watson. “Part of the Hilton Austin culture is going the extra mile to ensure guest-comfort and satisfaction, which is why guests have enjoyed their stay without the inconveniences commonly associated with a redesign of this scope.”
