Compass Development Marketing Group is the sales and marketing agent for Conrad Residences Austin.
The development will have 330 hotel rooms in the Conrad Austin portion of the high-rise property.
“The Conrad hotel brand was established in 1982, named after Hilton founder, Conrad Hilton, and has properties in the world’s most desirable locations, including major cities such as New York, Washington, D.C., Hong Kong, and London and leisure destinations such as the Maldives, Bora Bora, and Koh Samui,” Hilton says in a description on its website.
Over a dozen Conrad properties are under development in American markets including hotels in Nashville, Orlando and Los Angeles, and even more are underway in Asia including hotels in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Wuhan, China.
Described by Hilton as a “smart luxury” brand, some of the Conrad hotels have the art works of Andy Warhol or Picasso hanging in the lobbies.
Hilton has 40 Conrad hotels in 21 countries. The Conrad Austin will be built near the Hilton Austin, the Fairmont Austin, the Four Seasons, and the JW Marriott. The Conrad Austin will be Hilton’s only Conrad branded property in Texas.
