Following a franchise agreement with 4C Hotel Group, Hilton Worldwide has announced plans to bring its Canopy by Hilton brand to the UK. The Canopy by Hilton London City is slated to open in early 2018.
The launch of the new London City hotel, located in Aldgate, will follow the opening of the world’s first Canopy by Hilton in Reykjavik, Iceland, this summer. In London specifically, the Canopy property will join more than 35 Hilton hotels trading and under development in the Greater London area.
Construction is already under way on the mixed-use development, which will include a new city square, a public green garden, an office building and a new residential building alongside the Canopy by Hilton Hotel.
Al-karim Nathoo, managing director of 4C Hotel Group, noted that his company has several hotels across East Africa and Canada operating under the Double Tree by Hilton brands. “As the hotel industry continues to evolve we believe this lifestyle hotel will be a game-changing development in London,” he said in a statement.
