First Canopy by Hilton Hotel to Open in Reykjavik, Iceland
Hilton announced that it plans to open the Canopy Reykjavik/City Centre hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland in early 2016. Hilton launched its Canopy by Hilton brand in October 2014, and the property in Reykjavik will be the brand’s first property in the world.
The hotel will offer 115 guestrooms and suites with complimentary Wi-Fi and local breakfast. Upon arrival, guests will receive a welcome gift that is unique to the area.
A bar and restaurant will be located on the hotel’s rooftop, and a bistro will provide additional food options.
The hotel will be located on Reykjavik’s Hverfisgata St., a popular neighborhood in the middle of the city.
Hilton said that its Canopy brand will incorporate five main elements into the design of each hotel, namely: great neighborhoods, market-driven approach, comfort and design, more included value, and a “positively yours” culture. Canopy by Hilton hotels will offer local food and drinks at each property, as well as art from the respective local areas, and Hilton says that “no two Canopy hotels will be the same.”
