The hotel’s bar

The separate living room in my suite had a small grey sofa with interestingly patterned pillows, a small coffee table, a substantial writing desk with surface-mounted electrical power paired with a comfortable but decidedly non-ergonomic chair, and a rather fun wet bar with a refrigerated drawer to keep items cold, if needed.

The bath area, which had a sink surrounded by a generously sized marble countertop with ample room for toiletries as well as some soaps, shampoos, and a lighted makeup mirror, featured a rather gargantuan shower and bath area.

In the elevator lobby on each floor was a filtered water and ice machine.  I used it to fill up the water bottle left in my room during my stay and deemed it a thoughtful touch.

A generously sized bull-nose wooden writing desk with a period desk lamp was located on the other side of the bedroom.  Outlets were easily accessible, Wi-Fi worked quite well, and the desk chair, while comfortable, was also decidedly non-ergonomic.

The hotel has a variety of meeting and event spaces that can accommodate 100 people at a reception and 80 at a meeting.


The Canopy has a well-equipped gym but what really caught my attention were the orange hotel bicycles parked outside the main entrance.  Those – along with matching helmets – are free to guests for exploring the City of Brotherly Love.
