First UK Canopy by Hilton to launch next year

The first Canopy by Hilton, that redefines the lifestyle category, is to launch in UK in autumn 2020.

The 342-room Canopy by Hilton London City will join more than 35 hotels across the city within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio.

Owned by 4C Hotel Group and operated by RBH, the hotel will be situated at 16 Minories, and will feature a rooftop restaurant and a locally inspired cafe-deli.

Guests will be able to walk to London's buzzing East End in under 20 minutes, an area bursting with stylish boutiques and some of the city's best nightlife, giving the area a reputation of being one of Europe's trendiest urban neighbourhoods.

The £62m Minories development will feature a new city square, a public green garden, an office building and a new residential building alongside the Canopy by Hilton Hotel.

The interior design of Canopy by Hilton London City will draw on the legacy of the Whitechapel Gallery and the melting pot of cultures in the surrounding area.

A key feature of the Canopy brand is Canopy Central, the ground floor lobby designed to reflect the neighbourhood. Additional dining options will include a hotel restaurant serving fresh, healthy, and locally inspired dishes, while an atmospheric rooftop bar will offer unbeatable views and evening tastings of local craft beer and wine.

Wi-Fi and an artisanal breakfast will be included in the room rate, and guests will receive a welcome gift on arrival inspired by the City of London. The hotel will also include meeting rooms and a fitness centre for guests to enjoy.

Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton, said, 'Canopy offers travellers a fresh experience in the lifestyle category with surprising extras and local know how. Aldgate was chosen for its proximity to both the stylish City of London and the more edgy and energetic East End.'
