The iconic Le Suquet neighbourhood will welcome a new property in 2023, Canopy by Hilton Cannes.
Hilton confirmed on March 15th a franchise agreement with SNC Société d´Exploitation Nouvelle du Soleil d´Or, a subsidiary of SDPNE, to open a new hotel under its growing lifestyle brand Canopy by Hilton. This new property, located in the famous city of Cannes, will feature 143 guest rooms. Expected to open in 2023, future guests will be just a short walk from Old Port and the world-famous Palais des Festivals.
Cannes is a world-class destination, hosting international events and leisure travellers from all over the globe. Having introduced Canopy by Hilton to Paris’ lively Trocadero neighbourhood last year, Cannes is a fitting home for our second Canopy hotel in France, and joins Hilton’s burgeoning European lifestyle portfolio. With more than 20 new Hilton hotels planned in France in the next few years, we’re excited to extend our hospitality across the country, including Canopy by Hilton’s highly anticipated arrival on the Cote d’Azur.
