Canopy by Hilton, Hilton Worldwide’s new lifestyle hotel brand, and a joint venture between The Buccini/Pollin Group and Federal Realty, announced that a ground breaking has occurred for the 177-room Canopy by Hilton Washington, D.C. Bethesda North.
Slated to open in fall 2017, the property will provide a comfortable stay for guests in search of local experiences in the D.C. suburb of Bethesda North. In addition to its staterooms, the hotel will also have 23 suites and two three-bay Presidential Suites. Wi-Fi and a local artisanal breakfast will be included in the room rate.
Located at 11580 Old Georgetown Road, the property is at the center of Pike & Rose, a new mixed-use development with a sophisticated blend of restaurants, retailers, and live performance venues.
This pedestrian-friendly area is rapidly becoming a popular urban entertainment destination. Visitors can attend a concert or comedy show at AMP by Strathmore; see a film at iPic, an upscale movie theater with table service and plush seats; or enjoy gourmet fare while bowling at Pinstripes.
As with all Canopy by Hilton hotels, Canopy by Hilton Washington, D.C. Bethesda North will be inspired and influenced by local surroundings.

Produce will be sourced from Maryland farms located within 50 miles of the hotel.
At the bar, travelers can sip on local beers from such breweries as Baying Hound Aleworks in Rockville, Denizens Brewing Company in Silver Spring and Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, as well as DC Brau Brewing Company. Guests will be greeted with gluten-free Meringue Rose Cookies from Bethesda’s own Red Bandana Bakery.
