Driftwood Acquisitions & Development broke ground for construction of a Canopy by Hilton hotel in downtown West Palm Beach.

Coral Gables-based Driftwood expects to open the 150-room hotel in early 2019. It will be the first South Florida hotel to operate under the Canopy by Hilton brand.

Driftwood’s management arm in North Palm Beach, Driftwood Hospitality Management, will operate the hotel.

The 14-story Canopy by Hilton will feature a rooftop pool and bar, a lobby-level café and 5,000 square feet of event space. Complimentary guest services will include mobile check-in technology, Wi-Fi, breakfast, and evening tastings of locally made beer, wine and spirits.

Canopy is a neighborhood-based Hilton brand, and “with numerous culinary, nightlife and art offerings … the downtown [West Palm Beach] neighborhood is the perfect setting for Canopy,” Gary Steffen, global head of Canopy by Hilton, said in a prepared statement.
