Canopy by Hilton Cannes has opened its doors to guests from around the world. With panoramic views over the Mediterranean from one of the city’s best rooftop terraces, interiors designed by acclaimed designer Ramy Fischler and a relaxing swimming pool that flows from indoor to outdoor, the hotel is set to be the new key feature in Cannes. This opening marks Hilton’s entry into the city and is the latest addition to the growing portfolio of Canopy by Hilton properties across Europe.
“Celebrating the best of the city, the opening of Canopy by Hilton Cannes is an exciting milestone for both the brand and Hilton,” commented Matt Schuyler, Chief Brand Officer, Hilton. “Embodying the spirit of the French Riviera, the property’s design, exquisite dining and bespoke amenities are a testament to the Canopy by Hilton brand. Our growth in France and across the Lifestyle category is unparalleled and we remain committed to strengthening our footprint and continuing to deliver for our guests and owners.”
With an unbeatable address, moments away from the port, the hotel exemplifies the city’s relaxed chic in its design, with 129 guestrooms and suites, along with a further 12 apartments, most of which offer impressive views over the old harbour, La Croisette and the Lérins Islands. In collaboration with a prestigious jury of art experts and private collectors across the world, the hotel has invited twelve talented young artists to create unique artwork for each room. Contemporary artwork is complemented by Canopy by Hilton’s sophisticated comfort, including the brand’s signature canopy bed frame and exclusive bedding created just for Canopy by Hilton.
“We are delighted to open one of the first lifestyle hotels in Cannes, with breath-taking rooftop views over the French Riviera, authentic food and drink offers and a locally-inspired experience that will help guests connect to the neighbourhood,” said Jean-François Chapel, General Manager, Canopy by Hilton Cannes. “Canopy by Hilton Cannes is a tribute to the incredible all year-round appeal of the French Riviera and I’m proud to bring the Canopy by Hilton brand to this destination”.
The property features an indoor-outdoor heated swimming pool overlooking the sea and a fitness centre, which is accessible every day. Opening soon, the hotel will offer an indulgent spa, including five cabins, a hammam, a Japanese bath and sauna, where guests can revitalise and re-energise with a selection of face and body treatments.
On the top floor, Marea Rooftop Restaurant & Cocktail Bar has been designed with an identity inspired by the tranquil beauty of the Lérins islands, the soul of old Cannes and the ‘Grande Bleue’ Mediterranean Sea. From 6pm to midnight, seven days a week, guests are invited to share a selection of small plates, meticulously sourced from local suppliers. Concocted by Alexander Douglas Burger, originally from California and a traveller at heart, the Canopy by Hilton Cannes Head Chef has devised a menu full of surprises, detours and adventurous culinary delights.
Café Crème Brunch Club is Cannes’ new Californian eatery on the hotel’s first floor, which embraces cuisine that brings together friends, families, colleagues and soloists. Against the backdrop of lofi and hiphop beats, it is ideal for a detox juice or a locally roasted espresso, partnering with small producers, local craftsmen and artistic communities to provide a friendly, warm service.
Offering a multitude of public spaces, Canopy Central, the hotel’s hub, brings people together in comfort and warm natural light. A space for relaxation, work or simply to enjoy a few moments of contemplation, it has been created as a one-of-a-kind space that adapts to guest’s needs while feeling like an extension of the neighbourhood. Canopy Team Members are on hand to connect guests to the best of the neighbourhood and can suggest hidden gems to explore, even providing complimentary Canopy Bikes for guests to experience the city like a local.
