Canopy by Hilton Washington DC The Wharf

Washington DC, USA

The hotel

Totally in keeping with its sophisticated home city, Canopy by Hilton Washington DC The Wharf sweeps you up in its uber-contemporary spirit. With its incredible location — best admired from the roof terrace — the urban-appropriate greenery, and a barely-there glass balcony create a serene setting for viewing Potomac River. It may only be a walk from the metro, water taxis, and The Wharf, but it has complimentary Canopy bikes for exploring. And you can return for local brew, wine, and spirit tastings at Canopy Central, which is also the venue for its complimentary artisanal breakfasts (if you don’t opt for the free Break Fast Bag in-room delivery, that is).

Great stay overall! Eileen at the front desk was so nice, she complimented my NY Giants hoodie and then gave my girlfriend and I a bottle of wine after finding out we were there for a short "staycation". My upgrade request to the king suite was also granted to my surprise 😁. The bar staff was awesome also!

What a great stay. From the first minutes to the end it was unbelievable. Kids enjoyed the bikes while my husband and myself enjoyed the igloo outside seating. The place is beautiful inside and out. Unfortunately most of the restaurants on a pier were closed but there were some outside seating available.

One of the most beautiful, comfortable hotels I've ever stayed at. Incredible views, felt very safe w/respect to COVID, as it was incredibly clean, well staffed, and managed. The staff went above and beyond and the views alone have me sold that I'll always stay here when I'm in DC> Best part of town & best hotel BY FAR!

The hotel could not be in a better location at The Wharf. It is close to many good restaurants and has a phenomenal roof top bar with great views. We found the pizza and other things to be very good. We thought the hotel was doing all it could to be safe. It is clean and hand sanitizers are plentiful. Mask-wearing and spatial distancing are required. The two downsides were the room not being fully dark due to lighting from another hotel and the close by but quite expensive parking at The Wharf. Read less

My friend and I decided to getaway for the weekend and do local fun weekend and stayed at the Canopy. We love the wharf. The hotel is very clean and with sanitizers everywhere. We felt the hotel was doing an excellent job with signs and postings regarding masks and social distancing. It’s our 3rd stay and we will be back again.
