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-yearold 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.”
