Today sees the long-awaited debut of Hilton’s lifestyle Canopy brand in London.
The 340-room Canopy by Hilton London City has finally opened within the Minories development close to Aldgate Underground station.
General manager Beatriz Orta posted the following on LinkedIn yesterday:
“And we are finally here! Canopy by Hilton London City is about to bring new meaning to #LifeStyleTravel. We can’t wait to welcome you to experience our thoughtfully designed hotel – Opening tomorrow!”
The property features Penny Squares restaurant, which “weaves a story of the East End with Jewish and Middle Eastern flavours bringing people together over sharing plates from blazing clay ovens, evocative cocktails and a well-traveled wine list”.
Freedom Cafe offers coffee, lunches and workspace by day, and “cocktails, small plates, music & electric atmosphere by night”, while the “exclusive rooftop wonderland” Florattica (listed on the hotel’s website as “coming soon”) has been inspired by “17th century Huguenot silk weavers who made this area their home”.
There are currently around 30 Canopy hotels open worldwide, with over 30 additional properties under development.
Hilton also recently announced plans for its first Canopy property in the Seychelles.
