Hilton will be opening an 180-roomed Canopy by Hilton Johannesburg Rosebank, making this the second Canopy by Hilton hotel in SA. The group is also developing an additional property in Cape Town’s Kloof Street as well as a Canopy by Hilton property in Casablanca, Morocco; this brings the total amount of rooms in the pipeline on the continent to 10 000.
The Canopy by Hilton concept launched in 2014 and appeals to travelers seeking locally inspired stays. Each hotel designed to be an extension of its individual neighborhood. Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA, Hilton, said: “The growth of Canopy by Hilton at both ends of the African continent is indicative of what we see as demand from travellers looking for immersive, cultural travel experiences in established destinations. We’re proud to be building further momentum on the continent and passing the milestone of 10,000 rooms illustrates our long term confidence in the industry.”
Canopy by Hilton Johannesburg Rosebank is set to open in 2023 and will be located on Jellicoe Avenue, and is located across the road from the Keyes Art Mile Precinct and close to the CIRCA modern art gallery. Its design concept aims to allow guests to connect with the artistic fabric of Rosebank whilst offering facilities such as a rooftop bar, pool and garden area that will bring the neighbourhood into the property.
The hotel has been designed by GHA Architects and is being developed by Svelte Bespoke. Interior design is being undertaken by Tristan Du Plessis in collaboration with Svelte.
