Brand New Canopy Hotel in London Hilton worldwide has announced its plans to open a £76 million hotel development in Aldgate and is expected to open in early 2018. Its launch will follow the opening of the world’s first Canopy by Hilton in Reykjavik this summer.

Gary Steffen, global head at Canopy by Hilton, said: “Aldgate was chosen for its proximity to both the stylish City of London and the more edgy and energetic East End.” The company will join forces with 4C Hotel Group to open a Canopy property. Canopy is Hilton’s first ‘lifestyle’ brand designed to act as a ‘natural extension’ of each hotel’s neighbourhood. The new development will also feature a public green garden, a public square, an office building and a new residential building alongside the Canopy by Hilton. Its interior design will draw on the history of the Whitechapel gallery and the cultures in the surrounding area. The hotel will feature meeting rooms, a ground floor lobby designed to reflect the neighbourhood, a hotel restaurant, rooftop bar, a fitness centre and complimentary wi­fi.
