Canopy by Hilton, Hilton’s lifestyle hotel brand, officially opened its first Texas hotel, the Canopy by Hilton Dallas Uptown. 

Owned and developed by Dallas-based The Javelin Group, the newest Canopy by Hilton is centrally located in Dallas’ Uptown district, steps from more than 100 shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. Positioned at the intersection of Cityplace West and Oak Grove, Canopy by Hilton Dallas Uptown includes design elements that speak to the history of Uptown, including artwork, vintage bricks from McKinney Avenue and a refurbished piece of the M-Line Trolley. 

“We are honored to open the doors of Canopy’s inaugural Texas property,” Alan Naul of The Javelin Group said in a statement. “We look forward to providing out-of-town guests and locals alike a destination where they can get a true sense of local living in Dallas.”

The hotel includes two food-and-beverage options. The 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, offering dishes such as flatbreads and open-faced sandwiches. The second is the Upside West Village, a rooftop bar and lounge offering views of downtown Dallas. Upside’s mixology program, curated by Proprietors, the team behind famed Death & Co bars, includes craft cocktails, local and craft brews and a wine list by the glass or bottle. The locally-sourced food menu includes small bites and shared plates, varying from Citrus Salmon Tartare to Spicy Chicken Bravas. Open from 4 p.m. to midnight daily, Upside West Village has a separate elevator entrance from the hotel. 

“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,” Gary Steffen, global head of Canopy by Hilton, said in a statement. “The proximity to endless dining, shopping and entertainment options will position Canopy as a natural and convenient choice for Dallas visitors.” 

The hotel has 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 reflection of Dallas through handcrafted furniture, Uptown-inspired artwork and residential amenities such as cooling mattresses, sliding barn doors and Nespresso machines. Starting at 830-square-feet, the hotel offers two suites, named Travis and Cole, which have separate living areas, balconies and upgraded furnishings.
