"Hilton’s commitment to Harbor Point shows the company’s level of excitement and confidence in Baltimore,” said Michael S.

Harbor Point will be a prime business and leisure destination, and we are thrilled to bring Canopy by Hilton to Baltimore.”
“Canopy by Hilton redefines the lifestyle segment, and brings guests closer to the destinations and communities in which they travel,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “The Harbor Point neighborhood in Baltimore perfectly aligns with the ethos of Canopy by Hilton.
