Hilton Opens Third Canopy by Hilton Hotel in China in UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hangzhou West Lake
HANGZHOU, China and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of Canopy by Hilton Hangzhou West Lake. Marking the brand’s 27th property globally, the 160-room state-of-the-art hotel is owned by Zhejiang Xingcai Investment Co., Ltd. and managed by Hilton.
Located 26 kilometers from Hangzhou International Airport, within the heart of downtown Hangzhou and a short walk from UNESCO World Heritage Site, West Lake, the hotel is in close proximity to Hangzhou Metro Line 1 and HuBin Pedestrian Road, the city’s thoroughfare for business, retail, and entertainment.
"Famous for its rich cultural heritage and nature sceneries, Hangzhou West Lake is an increasingly popular leisure destination for travelers. Following the huge success of the brand's Asia Pacific debut in Chengdu and Hangzhou Jinsha Lake, we are thrilled to unveil Canopy by Hilton Hangzhou West Lake — our third Canopy by Hilton hotel in China,” said Qian Jin, area president for Greater China and Mongolia, Hilton. “The property underscores our commitment to maintain strong growth momentum in Greater China and will continue to deliver positive hospitality experiences to our guests.”
The design of Canopy by Hilton Hangzhou West Lake was inspired by the city’s past as a hub of cultural diversity throughout history, just like a “kaleidoscope”, with its changeable spaces and wonderful experiences for guests to explore. Featuring elements of a kaleidoscope to represent traits of diversity and community, the stylishly designed hotel is home to a unique mix of spaces that incorporates aspects from Hangzhou's local culture and architecture, blending both seamlessly as a natural extension of the neighborhood. Delightful tones peppered throughout the hotel create a relaxing atmosphere with touches of refreshing orange hues. A specially curated wall displaying the best of Hangzhou will also delight guests with authentic artifacts and crafts from local shops and artisans.
“We are on a positive growth trajectory for our Canopy by Hilton brand with the exciting opening of our third hotel in China and another five hotels due to open in other parts of Asia over the coming years. Following a recent study Hilton did amongst Chinese travelers, we know that many of them are planning ahead to their next trips, looking to explore unfamiliar places and create new travel memories with their loved ones. With the promise of authentic local experiences delivered by our friendly hotel Enthusiasts, complemented by the beautiful architecture and design of the hotel embodying the essence of Hangzhou’s heritage and culture, we are confident Canopy by Hilton Hangzhou West Lake will be an ideal destination for guests traveling within China and beyond when travel resumes,” said Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president, Luxury and Lifestyle, Asia Pacific.
