Canopy to Africa
HILTON’S lifestyle Canopy by Hilton brand is set to debut in Africa following a deal with Growthpoint Properties, South Africa’s largest REIT.
The 150-room Canopy by Hilton Cape Town Longkloof is expected to open in 2021, located nearby the city’s historical epicenter, the Company’s Garden. The hotel will be housed in a redeveloped 112-year-old site which began as the premises of United Tobacco Company.
“Cape Town is one of the world’s most sought-after destinations, offering an array of attractions to suit every travel occasion,” Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA, Hilton said.
“Canopy by Hilton becomes our third brand to gain a presence in the city and we are eyeing further expansion.”
