The Hilton Garden Inn Austin University Capitol District, a 214-room hotel located in the heart of downtown Austin, is opening its doors next week on August 10. Developed by Rockbridge and HRI Properties, LLC, and with interior design led by Studio 11 Design out of Dallas, TX, the hotel's chic aesthetic captures the colorful vibe of Austin, with a fresh color palette and locally sourced materials.

General: Ground-level bar and restaurant, spacious fitness center, expansive rooftop deck, and dual indoor/outdoor meeting spaces with incredible city views. Thanks to its prime location between the Texas Capital Corridor and the University of Texas, the property is a short walk to downtown Austin's restaurants, bars, and music venues on Austin's famous 6th Street.

Design: The main lobby features brown leather and earth tones, and textured wall coverings and locally inspired artwork flow seamlessly throughout the property's public spaces and are a nod to the city's modern, creative spirit and roots as a cattle town.

Guest Rooms: Rooms boast sweeping city views of University of Texas and the state capitol. Unique guestroom décor pays homage to Austin's eclectic live-music scene with artwork made from vintage posters from the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

17th Floor Rooftop: Guests and patrons of the lobby bar enjoy exclusive access to Apex, the 17th floor rooftop deck. With impressive views of the University of Texas, Austin Hill Country, and the state capitol, the chic outdoor space provides ample lounge furniture and lawn games and can be reserved for private events of up to 100 guests.

Meetings Spaces: Over 4,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space including the Apex Room and 17th floor rooftop terrace, both showcasing stunning views. High vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and a cool blue and gold color palette are complemented by rich wood tables.

Dining: Located in the main lobby that flows into a covered outdoor patio, Analog bar and restaurant offers guests flavors of downtown Austin, with small bites inspired by the local food trucks for lunch and dinner, signature cocktails and craft beverages from Texas distributors, and live music. Additional dining options include Intro: Early Eatery for breakfast, and The Store, offering locally made products and pre-made items from Analog for grab-and-go.
