Calling all wearied travelers, look no further than Uptown Dallas to rest your head. Canopy by Hilton, Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) lifestyle hotel brand, is opening its first Texas property in late June.

Located at CityPlace Boulevard and Blackburn Street, Canopy by Hilton Dallas Uptown is a 9-story, 150-room hotel with a connected 24-story, 389-unit residential tower. The 2.6-acre project is owned and developed by hotel developer The Javelin Group.

“We are excited to open this lifestyle hotel in our own backyard and give guests, locals and out-of-towners alike, a true sense of Texas hospitality,” Alan Naul, founder of The Javelin Group, said in a press release.

The hotel itself will reflect Dallas culture, featuring local artwork, vintage bricks from McKinney Avenue and a refurbished section of the M-Line Trolley. The guest rooms, called “Just Right” rooms, will offer views of downtown Dallas, handcrafted furniture, cooling mattresses, Nespresso machines, walk-in showers and open closets.

Guests receive a welcome gift upon check in, pastries from nearby French bakery Bisous Bisous. Each morning, they can order an artisanal breakfast at Canopy Central Café or arrange for a grab-and-go breakfast bag to be delivered to their room. Each evening, the rooftop lounge, Upside, will host a tasting of craft and local beers, wine and cocktails. Featured breweries will include Deep Ellum Brewery, Community Brewery and Lakewood Brewery.

The Dallas Uptown hotel is also participating in the brand’s Paws in the Neighborhood initiative, a partnership with pet product manufacturer Planet Dog. Each canine guest will receive a dog bed and a “Paws in the Neighborhood Welcome Gift” with an Orbee ball, dog treats and pick-up bags.

Another Canopy by Hilton is under construction in Frisco as a part of a four-brand, 600-room hotel campus in Frisco Station. The new hotel campus will anchor The Hub in Frisco Station, a mixed-use development near Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters.
