Name: Canopy by Hilton
No. of Keys: TBA
Buyers: Various…. Hilton has shared plans to open a 20 new Canopy by Hilton properties around the globe before the end of 2020.
The Canopy brand prides itself on offering guests more of a local experience (an equivalent to IHG’s Indigo brand). Employees are considered neighbourhood “enthusiasts” who are focused on helping guests with thoughtful recommendations for restaurants, attractions and live events in town.
Hilton has also gone to great lengths to create distinct, stylish spaces inspired by that particular neighbourhood’s history and culture, and every guest staying at a Canopy by Hilton can take advantage of complimentary bikes.
Liz Hund from The Points Guy says: “I always make it a point to visit the Canopy at The Wharf. Washington DC. It’s a fun area of the city to hang out in, and the rooftop at the hotel offers some of the best views of D.C. And the bar, Whiskey Charlie, makes excellent drinks. It’s the perfect place to catch up with friends or impress visitors.
Canopy by Hilton’s international lineup includes forthcoming properties in São Paulo-Jardins in Brazil; Hangzhou-West Lake in China; Paris-Trocadero in France; Dubai-Al Seef in the United Arab Emirates. It will also open in London City in the United Kingdom. Cancun la Isla, in Mexico, just opened this week with rates starting around £150.
In the U.S., properties are slated to open in:
Austin-Downtown in Texas
Baltimore-Harbor Point in Maryland
Charlotte-South Park in North Carolina
Dallas-Frisco Station in Texas
Grand Rapids-Downtown in Michigan
Jersey City Arts District in New Jersey
Kansas City Downtown in Missouri
Memphis Downtown in Tennessee
Philadelphia Center City in Pennsylvania
San Antonio Riverwalk in Texas
Old Town Scottsdale in Arizona
Tempe-Downtown University Area in Arizona
West Palm Beach Downtown in Florida
The Canopy by Hilton Washington, D.C. Embassy Row just opened on 14 January, with rooms from 32,000 Hilton points per night ($105) in February. Hilton uses dynamic pricing when it comes to award nights, so it’s hard to pinpoint where exactly all these properties will land in terms of redemption rates.
In addition to these 20 new properties, there are currently a dozen other Canopy hotels peppered across the U.S., China, Croatia and Reykjavik, Iceland.
Looking ahead, Hilton is planning on opening up 14 additional properties in destinations such as Bordeaux, France and Cape Town, South Africa.
