Development of the hotel will start shortly and the property is said to open in late 2022. Canopy by Hilton is an upper-upscale lifestyle hotel brand.  Each hotel under the brand is designed as a natural extension of its neighbourhood. 

“Canopy by Hilton responds to a growing customer preference for upscale hotels that fit authentically into local neighbourhoods and cultures,” said Hilton president Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Rudi Jagersbacher.  “We can tick all the boxes with our plans to bring the brand to Kuwait – with a great location in a great neighbourhood, and a trusted partner in Alshaya Group,” he added.
