Canopy by Hilton, Hilton Worldwide's new hotel brand, and Icelandair Hotels unveiled plans for Canopy's first hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland's capital. The Canopy Reykjavik | City Centre will be the first hotel to open in the brand's portfolio, which launched in October 2014. The property is scheduled to open in 2016.
Canopy Reykjavik | City Centre is now under construction on Hverfisgata St, a neighborhood in the center of the city. The hotel will include an open lobby, and a rooftop bar and restaurant will serve drinks and food throughout the day. Guests can also visit a bistro.
Canopy Reykjavik | City Centre will have 115 guestrooms and suites, and will have a new interior while retaining the buildings' façade and preserving the architectural integrity of the neighborhood.
The hotel will be operated by Icelandair Hotels, a subsidiary of Icelandair Group and a partner of Hilton Worldwide, having operated Hilton Reykjavik Nordica since it opened in 2007.
