Hilton is planning to bring its upper-upscale lifestyle brand, Canopy by Hilton, to France. Two hotels–Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero and Canopy by Hilton Bordeaux Chartrons—are set to open before the end of 2021, following management and franchise agreements.

“Paris and Bordeaux are exceptional destinations. Hilton’s expansion in France is gaining further momentum, with plans to triple our portfolio in the next five years,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, SVP/development, EMEA, Hilton. 

The 123-room Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero is scheduled to be the brand's first in France when it debuts in 2020 in the city's 16th arrondissement, close to several galleries and attractions such as the Palais Galliera and Palais de Tokyo museums.

The hotel is owned by a French institutional investor and will be operated by Hilton under a management agreement. 

The new-build Canopy by Hilton Bordeaux Chartrons is expected to open in early 2021 in the Chartrons neighborhood and overlook the Garonne River. 

The hotel will have multiple dining options, including a rooftop restaurant, bar and pool and Bordeaux’s city center. 

The hotel is owned by SAS RE Hotels, an affiliate of SAS Groupe Reaumur France, and will operate under franchise agreement. 

The introduction of Canopy in France marks Hilton’s fourth brand entry in the country in as many years, following the debut of Curio Collection by Hilton in 2017, Hilton Garden Inn in 2018 and Hampton by Hilton this year. The new Canopy hotels join European properties in Reykjavik and Zagreb, and another under construction in London.
