Canopy by Hilton Washington DC I Bethesda North is coming to Pike and Rose in late 2017/early 2018, and it’s going to be gorgeous and oh so hip. With 177 “just right” rooms including 12 suites, a 3,100 square foot ballroom named “The Outlook” as it peers over the neighborhood with floor to ceiling windows, a 3,200 square foot outdoor multifunctional terrace space named “Pike’s Perspective” situated with large glass garage doors to the fresh air as an extension of the huge indoor lobby area they call “Canopy Central”, Canopy is going to be one of the centerpieces of the Pike District.
Friends of White Flint got a behind-the scenes tour, and we’re excited to report this hotel is going to create an atmosphere as Tom Allen, Lead Sales Enthusiast told us, of “luxury without the attitude” The team of enthusiasts will offer each guest with a local centric welcome gift, basic Wi-Fi, an artisanal breakfast made from fresh, local ingredients and evening “Food & Drink” tastings—all on the house. Rather than clutter up the lobby with a traditional check-in desk, Canopy uses a communal welcome table with tablets or the option for guests to check in on their mobile phone. There is plenty of room on the main level, “Canopy Central”, to work or relax with friends either in the social areas or their “retreat” which is separated with glass and without music. They will also provide a transfer space so early and late arriving guests have a comfortable place in which to shower and relax as well as a retail wall displaying selected books, local products, fun Canopy-branded items and discreetly displayed sundries.
In each “just right” room, there are easy to access outlets and USB ports, a glass bottle to fill with fresh filtered water from a hallway station, a fridge, a Nespresso coffee machine, comfy orange socks to keep your feet warm on the polished concrete floors, soft grey robes, Greek high-end plant based toiletries made from beehive products and organic essential oils, good lighting, and a chaise with a laptop desk. The bathroom even has built in shelves so guests have a place to stash their toiletries besides the sink counter. Instead of an old-fashioned closet, the “un-closeted room” has an open rack-and-shelving unit with hangers.
