Hilton Expands Canadian Portfolio
Hilton Hotels to Expand Canadian Portfolio
Hilton Hotels has announced robust Canadian expansion plans for Canopy by Hilton, Tapestry Collection by Hilton and Tru by Hilton, driven by Canada’s thriving tourism industry. Providing guests with vibrant, unique experiences at different price points, the expanded footprint includes Tru by Hilton and the introduction of Canopy by Hilton and Tapestry Collection by Hilton into Canada.
Hilton has the largest hotel construction pipeline in Canada with nearly 70 hotels and 8,000 rooms expected to open over the next four years, including:
- Tapestry Collection by Hilton: Tapestry Collection has three hotels anticipated to open in Moncton, New Brunswick (2019), Mississauga, Ontario, and Calgary, Alberta.
- Tru by Hilton: Tru by Hilton has nearly 10 additional hotels in its pipeline that are expected to open by the end of 2021, primarily in Ontario.
- Canopy by Hilton: Hilton's lifestyle brand is set to debut in 2022 with Canopy by Hilton Toronto - Yorkville. The property will be located at the cross-section of several neighborhoods known for high-end retail and vibrant culture, and will provide guests with a variety of thoughtfully local on- and off-property experiences.
“The introduction of Tapestry Collection to a country experiencing a significant rise in tourism is an exciting prospect for a brand still in its early development,” said Jenna Hackett, global head, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. “Our debut in the Canadian market will allow us to reach a new set of guests and offer those who have grown to love the Tapestry Collection brand more opportunities for authentic, independent experiences outside of the U.S.”
Earlier this year, Tru by Hilton opened its first hotel outside the United States, Tru by Hilton Edmonton Windermere. Conveniently located in Edmonton’s southern business district, the property is just 20 minutes’ drive from the Edmonton International Airport and steps away from shops, food and area attractions including the West Edmonton Mall, the largest mall in North America.
“We are particularly excited about the growth opportunities in Canada for our newer brands, as our owners confidently embrace our organic growth strategy,” said Matt Wehling, senior vice president, development, U.S. and Canada, Hilton.
