NATIONAL REPORT—A number of Hilton-branded hotels have opened recently. Here’s a look:
NewcrestImage Opens Canopy by Hilton In North Dallas
NewcrestImage has opened its first Canopy by Hilton—a 150-room, seven-floor hotel—at Frisco Station in north Dallas. The property is the third hotel in a four-brand, 600-room “lifestyle hotel campus” developed by NewcrestImage.
Operating since August of 2019 are the first two hotels—an AC Hotel and Residence Inn, each with 150 rooms—that are housed together in a dual-brand building. The fourth hotel, a 150-room Hyatt Place, currently has no scheduled date for start of construction.
The company has implemented a number of measures to ensure guest health and safety. Examples include disinfecting guest luggage on arrival; more technology and less physical interaction during check-in and checkout; sanitizing surfaces in public areas every hour; and modifying the HVAC system to prevent spread of microbes and virus.
Decor at the Canopy by Hilton in Frisco evokes boutique-like charm by using locally inspired design, furnishings and artwork, while also offering technology. Guestrooms include the distinctive Canopy headboard that reaches to the ceiling and overhangs the bed.
