The 115-room Canopy Reykjavik City Centre -- the first property under the new Canopy by Hilton lifestyle brand -- will open in Iceland early next year. The hotel will have a rooftop bar and restaurant and will participate in Hilton HHonors, the hotel company’s guest rewards program. The property is being developed and managed by Icelandair Hotels, which also operates the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica. Hilton Worldwide announced its new brand last October. "In creating Canopy by Hilton, we focused heavily on customer research at every stage, and the result is a brand that redefines the lifestyle segment, and brings guests closer to the destinations and communities in which they travel," said Gary Steffen, global head of the brand. "Reykjavik is unlike any other city on Earth, and its rich cultural heritage and natural beauty align with the ethos of Canopy by Hilton. It is with considerable excitement that we anticipate the opening of Canopy Reykjavik City Centre in 2016."
