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).

Simply wonderful! From the extremely fast and personable check-in to the amazing rooftop restaurant! I’ll be back again and again. I highly recommend the Canopy Hotel Wharf location, with the gorgeous rooftop view at Whiskey Charlie’s! Perfect getaway!

The hotel was very clean, and very friendly. The ice machine and refrigerators in the room is another story. Minimum ice comes out could not fill a cooler, can barely fill the ice bucket in the room. When I asked how to turn the fridge down in the room to get it colder I was told it was preset but I could put a bag of ice in it to get it colder, I… Read more
The hotel was very clean, and very friendly. The ice machine and refrigerators in the room is another story. Minimum ice comes out could not fill a cooler, can barely fill the ice bucket in the room. When I asked how to turn the fridge down in the room to get it colder I was told it was preset but I could put a bag of ice in it to get it colder, I never heard of such a thing! Then when I asked for champagne glasses for the room was told no because of Covid, but later that day was given wine glasses for the room...really didn’t understand that! Read less

I loved everything about this hotel. The location is great, right on the wharf, walk to restaurants, bars, pizza, seafood market. Modern, clean, quiet. Great breakfast omelet. Don't miss the rooftop bar with outdoor seating. Wonderful staff. Really enjoyed the complimentary bicycles, biked to National Mall in less than 10 minutes.

We stayed in Jan 2020 for a very pleasant time. The (Excellent) River View Room was thoughtfully laid out with lots of storage space for 2 large international suitcases. A separate dining area and large separate bathroom were very pleasant to use. Especially liked the vibes of the Washington D.C. wallpaper! Of course, location, location, location… Read more
We stayed in Jan 2020 for a very pleasant time. The (Excellent) River View Room was thoughtfully laid out with lots of storage space for 2 large international suitcases. A separate dining area and large separate bathroom were very pleasant to use. Especially liked the vibes of the Washington D.C. wallpaper! Of course, location, location, location is great for the Wharf and also close to central downtown. Breakfast had a few hiccups but overall was a good experience. But we didn't like the elevator change at the lobby from the lower floors to go up to our rooms. That's two separate elevators each time. At first, it was quirky, but after several times it just became distracting. That's a double exposure for Covid too. Read less

The facility is modern, clean and as-advertised. Employees are super-friendly as well, with several “above-expectations” experiences delivered. Rooms were very clean and we felt safe even in the midst of COVID.
