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).

Booked myself in for a 'staycation' and had a fantastic time! The hotel is in a great location - right on the waterfront, with all the bars and restaurants near by. The room was extremely comfortable, with all the amenities needed - I particularly liked the option to fill up a water bottle with filtered water for free! The staff were superb - very welcoming when I checked in, and always checking on me when I passed through the public spaces. I ate breakfast and lunch at the hotel, and Dujan was a stand out staff member - great customer service and went the extra mile to look after me. Also went up to the rooftop bar, Whiskey charlie - had a great food and drinks with the best views in DC! Overall it was a really fantastic stay. Read less

Very okay experience. Views are exaggerated in pics, paid extra for a “marina view” & got a room where you could barely see the marina. Bar/amenities/grounds are what keep hotel afloat but staff (outside of bar staff) is not the most customer focused. Went to celebrate a birthday (made a point to put it in notes & mention it over the phone) & it… Read more

Bar/amenities/grounds are what keep hotel afloat but staff (outside of bar staff) is not the most customer focused. Went to celebrate a birthday (made a point to put it in notes & mention it over the phone) & it was not acknowledged. Embarrassing to say the least. Expected more from an “upscale” Hilton. However otherwise bars are great, location/rooftop view is nice & hotel/room is clean. Read less

My husband and I stayed at Canopy for the weekend of his father’a service at Arlington Cemetery. Serena, Kaye and Victoria were incredible, and we loved their positive vibe. Their energy uplifted our stay, and we hope to see them next time we visit. Loved the patio and views from the deck.
