EDG oversees $23M renovation of Hilton Austin

Hilton Austin

The Hilton Austin hotel started a $23 million renovation of its lobby, public areas and meeting space, as well as the launch of two new restaurant concepts, an event venue and the addition of a 3,000-square-foot Starbucks outlet.

EDG Interior Architecture + Design is overseeing the work at the convention hotel, which will be completed by the end of the year.

The lobby update is set for completion in mid-summer. Upon completion, this space will have small, intimate social zones that will be designated as workspaces. There will also be a new digital media wall.

Cannon + Belle restaurant, opening late summer, will have a multistation open kitchen, an indoor beer garden and a “living room”’ space.

The Reverbery, also opening late summer, will be the hotel’s new banquet hall. It will be an indoor/outdoor space with an “Austin-cool” recording studio vibe.

Meanwhile, the Austin Taco Project, opening late fall, will be a craft beer and fusion taco bar with a street-front patio.

The public space improvements come on the heels of a $23-million upgrade to the hotel’s 801 guestrooms, suites and executive lounge in 2014, and a $1 million refurbishment of its eighth floor pool deck and bar in spring 2013.
