A Glimpse into Boston’s Newest Boutique Hotel: Canopy by Hilton

Canopy by Hilton Boston Downtown opened in March offering visitors a luxurious stay and a glimpse into Boston’s history, while adding to Boston’s growing hotel inventory. Located on the oldest commercial block in Downtown Boston, guests can head just across the street to bustling Faneuil Hall Marketplace for shopping and entertainment or take a short walk to the North End for an authentic Italian dinner. Canopy has curated every Boston-inspired detail throughout the hotel, from historic art pieces and décor elements to local retailers featured at the gift shop.

Canopy is located 1.4 miles from the BCEC and is easily accessible via the MBTA. Visitors are welcomed to their stay with an open-layout lobby featuring a gold-framed television and shelves lined with books and sculptures. In the case of an early check-in or late check-out, guests have the option to utilize Canopy’s unique transfer lounge. Equipped with lockers for luggage storage, seating space, and a shower with full amenities, the transfer lounge takes the stress out of travel plan uncertainties. Every perk has been considered; guests have access to glass water bottles and filtered water throughout their trip, Peloton bikes in the gym, and even a rentable Canopy bike to ride around Boston.

On the way to the rooms, guests will find halls lined with custom toile wallpaper, featuring designs which capture the old and new of Boston, such as Abigail Adams watching football. Even the font on the door numbers ties in with Boston history, as it is the same font used throughout Faneuil Hall. Inside the spacious rooms, guests have canopied beds decorated with the same toile print as the wallpaper in the halls, which is unique to the “Canopy” brand. Each room contains unique artwork, a full bathroom with modern fixtures, and plenty of storage space. In Balcony Suite rooms, guests have access to a wrap-around balcony with gorgeous views of Bston and their own living room area.

 In addition to its guest rooms, Canopy provides three flexible meeting rooms with over 1,700 square feet of space. Two of these meeting rooms can combine which offers space for up to 84 attendees. Audio-visual and catering services are available in all meeting spaces.


Canopy offers a variety of luxurious dining options right inside the hotel. Currently open to the public is The Canopy’s Rose Town Kitchen and Bar. With a wrap-around full bar and seating that looks out on a beautiful garden, Rose offers an elevated take on your favorite American foods. Rose is available for private events and offers live music on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm.

Additionally, Gordon Ramsey plans to open a two-level burger restaurant in Canopy this fall. This will be Gordon Ramsey’s second restaurant in the city and will feature his butter-basted burgers, fries, scratch-made sauces, and hand-spun milkshakes. The first floor will be accessible from the street level, while the second level will feature a deck with views of Downtown, the West End, the North End, and Rose Kennedy Greenway.


Canopy’s attention to detail makes guests feel like they are experiencing a new piece of what makes Boston unique with each moment of their stay. General Manager, Rob Rosenblatt, shares that excitement: “As the Commonwealth’s first and only Canopy by Hilton, we are proud to be Hilton’s newest upscale, lifestyle property in Boston.  Our uniquely local character offers guests the opportunity to experience the city’s rich history blended with modern, sophisticated lifestyle.” From the second visitors walk into the lobby, Canopy is bound to exceed expectations while giving them the full “Boston Experience”.
