Canopy is one of Hilton’s newest brands with only three hotels currently in their portfolio – Reykjavik City Centre, Washington, DC at The Wharf, and North Bethesda. There is a good chance you probably have not yet heard of this brand and might not even know it is within the Hilton umbrella. Fortunately though, they are adding a dozen or so Canopy properties within the next year so there will be more options to stay with them!
The Canopy properties are positioning themselves to be a lifestyle hotel. The hotels include local choices, including furniture, food, signature drinks, and trying to really immerse themselves in the neighborhoods they are in. They are open and have a very comfortable and friendly feel to them. There are many lounge areas to hang out, sit, have a drink, talk to a friend, etc.
While I did not actually stay at this hotel, I was able to get a behind the scenes tour from the manager during myHilton media visit a few weeks back. I did, however, spend a good amount of time at this property to get a good feel for the Canopy brand.
Four of my favorite components at Canopy properties include:
- Complimentary bikes for all guests
- Complimentary artisanal breakfast in their face and if you are in a rush you can instead request a “goody bag” of the breakfast to be delivered to your room!
- A local welcoming gift – I received a delicious piece of chocolate which is always a nice little touch
- Evening tasting of local drinks
And this is for every guest! No status needed!
For those who have never stayed at a Canopy property, I suggest checking them out! I personally cannot wait to actually stay at a Canopy property and experience it first hand.
