Donohoe Hospitality Set for Fall Opening of Canopy by Hilton Baltimore Harbor Point

USA, Baltimore, Maryland. October 07, 2020

Canopy by Hilton, Hilton's lifestyle hotel brand, will open its first Baltimore location this fall at 1215 Wills Street. Located at Wills Wharf in the heart of the Harbor Point neighborhood, the forthcoming hotel has recruited local experts to cultivate an authentic Charm City experience for travelers.

A total of 156 guestrooms split across 24 room types, each offers floor to ceiling views of the city's skyline and waterfront, as well as convenient access to a range of exciting cultural attractions around the Inner Harbor, Fells Point and Harbor East.

Locally Inspired Design

Inspired by the industrial spirit and nautical history of Baltimore, Canopy will provide guests with safe and exciting ways to experience Baltimore's newest neighborhood with unique design, approachable service, and the inclusive local spirit that can only be found in Charm City. To explore the neighborhood, Canopy Bikes are accessible to guests upon availability and the hotel is steps away from Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park, where guests can catch a beautiful ride on the Baltimore Water Taxi.

Eat. Drink. Smile.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
