Affordable Hilton Luxury
Canopy by Hilton is trying to be decidedly different from the five-star, extravagant luxury that the Hilton hotel brand is famous for – and its first branch in the Asia-Pacific region has just opened in Chengdu.
Named for the bright orange canopy that hangs over the beds (seriously, who can resist a canopy?), this boutique hotel wants to offer travellers a casual, low-key space without sacrificing any of that trademark Hilton good taste and efficiency. From handwritten notes to free bicycles for guests to explore the city, Canopy appears to be all about those little touches.
Covering floors 23 to 32 of a downtown skyscraper, the Canopy offers you some spectacular views of the skyline from beautiful rooms that have been specially designed by Hong Kong architects, Cheng Chung Design.
The reception area has been converted into an exhibition hall, where you can find unique works of art that playfully reflect the ancient city’s romance with the both the old and the new.
A clever idea for travellers who are either checking out late or arriving early is the transfer lounge, where you can kick off your shoes, get a hot shower, or just laze about as you wait for your room or flight.
