Hilton has opened the 24th property under its lifestyle Canopy brand, and the third in China.
Canopy by Hilton Hangzhou West Lake joins properties in Chengdu and Hangzhou Jinsha Lake, with a fourth hotel also set to open in Xi’an later this year.
The 160-room property is located in downtown Hangzhou, close to the West lake UNESCO World Heritage Site, and around 26km from Hangzhou International Airport.
Rooms feature beds with Serta mattresses, ZoneActive five-zone foam toppers, and overhead canopies to “create an ideal sleeping environment”. Facilities include capsule coffee machines, smart speakers, free wifi and Acca Kappa bath amenities.
There is a 24-hour gym, a transfer lounge for early arrivals and late departures, and Nettare restaurant and bar with live cooking stations.
The hotel’s design has been inspired by the idea of a kaleidoscope “to represent traits of diversity and community”, and features local art and a curated wall displaying “the best of Hangzhou”, including artifacts and crafts from local shops and artisans.
Hilton Honors members can earn 1,000 bonus points when booking directly for stays at the hotel up to March 31, 2021.
The Canopy brand was launched in 2014, with the brand’s first mainland Europe hotel opening in Zagreb in November 2018.
Commenting on the news Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president, Luxury and Lifestyle, Asia Pacific, said:
“We are on a positive growth trajectory for our Canopy by Hilton brand with the exciting opening of our third hotel in China and another five hotels due to open in other parts of Asia over the coming years.
“Following a recent study Hilton did amongst Chinese travellers, we know that many of them are planning ahead to their next trips, looking to explore unfamiliar places and create new travel memories with their loved ones.
“With the promise of authentic local experiences delivered by our friendly hotel Enthusiasts, complemented by the beautiful architecture and design of the hotel embodying the essence of Hangzhou’s heritage and culture, we are confident Canopy by Hilton Hangzhou West Lake will be an ideal destination for guests traveling within China and beyond when travel resumes.”
