Hilton Worldwide has signed a franchise agreement with TFG Hotels to develop its first lifestyle hotel in Poland.

The 170-guestroom Canopy by Hilton Warsaw will open in Q2 2025 under TFG management.

Multipurpose spaces

The property’s features will include an expansive roof terrace, boasting views across Poland’s capital city, where visitors can drink a coffee or cocktail alongside a menu of locally-inspired dishes.

The hub of the hotel, Canopy Central, will bring together both guests and Warsaw residents, providing a space for relaxation, work or socialising. For business or social events that require larger or more private spaces, the hotel will offer meetings and events space.

Sophisticated guestrooms will be complete with Canopy by Hilton’s signature canopy bed frame and amenities including Canopy socks and Nespresso machines.

Warsaw-inspired design

With design inspired by Warsaw’s blend of art, culture and architectural styles, sweeping glass walls on the ground floor will blur the line between hotel and city, while curved balconies offer a subtle nod to the arches of Baroque architecture found in the city.

A grid of uniform square windows will help the building feel at home in its neighbourhood, with interior design and artwork paying homage to the history and culture of Warsaw’s city centre.

Poland apace

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe, Middle East and Africa at Hilton, said: “With five new hotels opening in the past year alone, Hilton’s growth in Poland continues at pace and destinations like Krakow, Warsaw and Wrocław present new opportunities for our world-class brands.

“We see great opportunity for our lifestyle brands across Europe, and Canopy by Hilton Warsaw will join locally inspired hotels in cities including Reykjavik, Zagreb and most recently Cannes. We’re excited to work with TFG hotels on this latest development, and look forward to welcoming guests.”

€30 million investment

Anna Fijalkowska, TFG Hotels, added: “We are thrilled to work with Hilton to introduce the Canopy by Hilton brand to Poland’s capital. Warsaw is a centre of commerce within the Central and Eastern European region and a city rich with history and culture, making it a hotspot for business and leisure travellers alike.

“Following an approximately €30 million investment, this newly developed hotel is certain to become a favourite for visitors and locals and we look forward to welcoming guests in 2025.”

Upcoming openings

Canopy by Hilton Warsaw will join the portfolio of 29 trading properties in Poland under Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Curio Collection by Hilton, DoubleTree by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton.

Upcoming Polish openings will include Hilton Garden Inn Radom, combining two historic buildings with a modern extension to create a 115-key hotel due to open just south of Warsaw. Plus two Hampton by Hiltons are heading to the country’s northwest, in the form of the 103-key Hampton by Hilton Szczecin East, arriving in Q2 2024, and Hampton by Hilton Tarnowo Podgorne, a 135-room property due to open in Q1 2025.
