Canopy by Hilton Opens Doors in Atlanta’s “Heart of Arts” Neighborhood
Midtown’s newest lifestyle hotel caters to the modern traveler
ATLANTA - Today, Canopy by Hilton, Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) lifestyle brand, officially announces the opening of its bustling Midtown Atlanta location. The hotel is partially owned and operated by Concord Hospitality, developed by Greystar and Whitman Peterson and designed by R2L: Architects.
Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown, which is the first lifestyle hotel of its kind in Georgia, will offer guests thoughtfully-curated local experiences from check-in to check-out. Guests can grab a complimentary Canopy Bike and explore the many nearby attractions, ranging from countless parks to the renowned Beltline, as well as take in all of the unique shopping, restaurants, museums and nightlife that the city has to offer. Known for being a cultural epicentre with a vibrant art, music and theatre scene, Midtown is a young, exciting area with plenty to do for all types of travelers.
“Opening this hotel in Atlanta has been such an exciting project,” said Vincent Bucci, chief enthusiast at Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown. “Since breaking ground, we have watched this neighborhood change before our eyes and have become a part of the amazing community of people here. We cannot wait for visitors from all over the world to experience the same Southern hospitality we have come to know and love here in the capital of the South.”
“We are thrilled to introduce Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown as one of our premier properties in the Southeast. Known for its vibrant history, rich culture and community-focused neighborhoods, Atlanta is a natural fit to welcome to the Canopy family,” said Gary Steffen, global head of Canopy by Hilton. “We are delighted to bring our locally-inspired lifestyle brand to this cosmopolitan city and look forward to sharing the Canopy experience with our guests and neighbors in the heart of Atlanta.”
Locally Inspired Design
Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown is home to 176 “Just-Right” rooms, including four spacious suites. The interiors of the rooms are inspired by the thriving art community surrounding the hotel, with local textiles and artwork featured throughout. With the help of designers Krause Sawyer, as well as three local commissioned artists, the interior styling of the hotel mimics the vibrant community that awaits outside.
Eat, Drink, Smile
For breakfast, guests can start their day with an inclusive artisanal breakfast in the in-house restaurant Xhibit Studio Kitchen & Bar or opt for the “Break Fast” bag to be delivered to their room, ideal for travelers on the go. For guests dining in, Xhibit Studio Kitchen & Bar also offers authentic cuisine made from fresh local ingredients with menu highlights including traditional specialities such as Shrimp & Grits, Southern Buttermilk Pie and a selection of local cheese, beer and wines.
Superfood hummus, pretzels and Sweetwater 420 Cheese Dip and daily hotel offerings will be available during evening tastings.
Just-Right Meeting Space
For meetings and events, Atlanta is an ideal choice as it is the location of one of the world’s most-traveled airports, Hartsfield Jackson, located just 14 miles away from Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown. The hotel has three meeting rooms, offering intimate meetings capabilities as well as a unique outdoor venue for social events such as cocktail receptions. The hotel also has a state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness center.
At Canopy by Hilton, every guest will experience a uniquely curated, local stay. Canopy by Hilton Atlanta Midtown is located at 1414 West Peachtree Street NW.
As the place in the neighborhood to relax and recharge, Canopy guests check-in to an open, welcoming space at Canopy Central, where travelers unwind with nightly tastings of locally-sourced brews, wine and spirits. Post check-in, guests enjoy the efficient design of their “Just-Right Room,” providing the highest level of comfort with a local touch. Thoughtful, surprising extras are in Canopy’s DNA, including complimentary artisanal breakfast and Wi-Fi as well as a Welcome Gift – a little something from the neighborhood. Guests can also tap Canopy Enthusiasts – or local experts – for their local know-how such as recommendations on the best restaurants and excursions in the neighborhood available to explore on Canopy complimentary bikes.
