Go Inside the Canopy by Hilton on West 6th Street in Downtown Austin


Looking the ultimate way to enjoy West 6th Street? How about booking an overnight stay at Canopy by Hilton? This branch of the Hilton brand prides itself on being an extension of the neighborhood in which it’s located. Standing at just six floors high, Canopy is a fantastic addition to this downtown district of Austin.

Wondering where exactly it’s located? For those of you non-newbies, the hotel is located where Union Park once stood (where yours truly spent many a night at the Boom Boom Room). If you moved to the ATX in the last decade, the hotel is neatly tucked in between Star Bar and Rio Night Club, just across from Rustic Tap and Parlor and Yard.

Here’s how to make the most of your 24 hour staycation at Canopy by Hilton:

Check in on time at 3 p.m. so you have plenty of time to enjoy the property.

Head up to your room to scope out the details – in my case, I absolutely adore the chaise lounge in each room.

This view of the city isn’t too shabby either!

Next up, throw on your bathing suit and head to the pool.

Order a signature cocktail like the Kucumber Kush and enjoy more skyline views.

After a couple of hours, head back to the room and clean up for dinner on the patio at Verbena. Keep your eyes peeled for famous faces! On this particular night, I spotted fellow diner Zachary Levi (want to know what other local restaurants celebs love? Click here.).

Grab a glass of wine to go and take it back to the room to enjoy the patio or curl up on the chaise and enjoy the AC!

Rise early the next morning to grab coffee and breakfast in the lobby. Or, if you prefer to support a local biz, head across the street to Walton’s Fancy and Staple, a neighborhood favorite since 2009.

Enjoy your treat at Walton’s or take it back to the hotel and enjoy the zen of the interior patio which offers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of the street outside.

After breakfast, you could even snag an hour or so at the pool before checking out.

Check out at noon and enjoy an afternoon exploring downtown Austin’s street art, wander the aisles at the Whole Foods Flagship, or go South and hit up one of our favorite spots on South Congress.

If you are able to book a stay before August 31, the hotel is offering a “Stay Sixth” promotion. This limited-time opportunity allows guest to add valet parking and a $50 daily food + drink credit for an additional $6 per night. The offer is only available online at HERE.
