Hilton is set to bring its upscale lifestyle brand, Canopy by Hilton, to Italy with the arrival of a new hotel planned in Venice. The news follows a management agreement between Hilton and Marseglia Group, owners of Hilton Molino Stucky Venice.
Gary Steffen, Global Head, Canopy by Hilton, Hilton, said, “Canopy by Hilton is rooted in the local neighborhood, and we’re particularly excited to incorporate and celebrate the unique cultural, culinary and artistic influences of Cannaregio area in Venice. Canopy by Hilton Venice City Centre will be a stunning addition to our growing lifestyle portfolio in Europe, which already includes trading hotels in Reykjavik and Zagreb.”
Canopy by Hilton Venice City Center (located at Calle de la Cereria 724, Venice) will join more than 30 Hilton hotels trading or under development across Italy when it opens in 2021. The hotel will be incorporated within the redevelopment of the existing buildings of the Venetian Botanical Gardens, which date back to the 19th century.
Canopy by Hilton hotels are inventively curated to appeal to travelers seeking a locally inspired experience, with unique interiors that are influenced by the culture and history of the neighborhood. Guests can immerse themselves with local food and drink tastings and use of the complimentary Canopy by Hilton bicycles to explore the city. The brand sets a relax and recharge atmosphere, offering simple guest-directed service, thoughtful local choices, and surprisingly comfortable spaces.
The introduction of Canopy by Hilton in Italy follows plans announced earlier this year to welcome guests at two new hotels in France, in Bordeaux and Paris. The new Canopy hotels join spectacular European properties in Reykjavik and Zagreb, with a further hotel under construction in London.
