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).

Staff not knowledgeable of booking options and couldn’t explain. Had to get a supervisor and ask multiple times. Menu was confusing in restaurant. Didn’t receive food I wanted and replacement was not what I requested. wait staff inattentive so couldn’t tell him I was dissatisfied. Took forever to get the check so I could leave.

No refrigerators in rooms unless requested. That was my first pause. Then it seems like for every positive factor in the hotel, there was a negative. Front desk staff were excellent during our stay.

No refrigerators in rooms unless requested. That was my first pause. Then it seems like for every positive factor in the hotel, there was a negative. Front desk staff were excellent during our stay. Very attentive and reactive. Bar/cafe staff not so much, more lackadaisical and not worried about whether they charged you correctly or not. Shower was great, but sink was more form over function. It didn't really drain correctly or completely. Bed was firm and mostly comfortable. A/C, though, was loud. We had a good time at the hotel, mostly due to the event we were attending, but I'm not sure I'd stay there again for the money. Of course, I've left out the location, which is excellent. Maybe three stars is a bit harsh, but I can't in good conscience give it more than that. Read less

I came here, from the Hyatt House, for breakfast. Ms. Barbara, the restaurant host, greeted me with extra special customer service. Although I was a tad late for breakfast, she took the time to ensure that I had a great breakfast, and experience! The next time I come to DC, I will book at the Canopy!

For as much as we paid for our room, I would have expect to have at least clean sheets on my bed. The previous guests makeup was still on the comforter. I was absolutely repulsed by this. I would have been disgusted pre-pandemic, but this made me question my personal health and safety during my stay.
