Canvas, where the hotel stay is the trip experience

Posted on November 01, 2021 | Atlantic Business Magazine | 0 Comments



Captivating, artsy and vibrant aren’t words that typically describe a standard hotel visit. But they capture exactly how you feel when you walk through the doors of Canvas.

Located in the heart of downtown Moncton, it’s the first-ever Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel to open in Canada. The essence of the brand is to encourage travellers to fully immerse themselves in the local community by “building their own story.”

And Canvas delivers.

Whether guests are sipping a coffee in Bar55, enjoying live music in the main lobby community “Living Room” area, perusing one of the art exhibits, or just snapping selfies to share on Instagram in front of unique hand- selected décor, it’s a fully immersive property.

Even when it’s taking care of business, Canvas strives to provide unique experiences—such as personalized coffee, wine or beer tastings—to organizations hosting meetings or conferences in its 2,600 square-feet of event space.

“While some people may simply call us a lifestyle hotel, it is so much more,” says Perry Vashee, President of Opal Hospitality. “We really pay attention to what people want and how we can integrate our city’s culture into our hotel.”

Says Bill Hennessey, President of FiveFive Developments and owner of Canvas: “I’ve continuously said that this  has to be unique. We are in tune with our community and all it has to offer by way of events, workshops and entertainment.”

On site is Gahan House Hub City and the first-ever boutique Expérience by Alcool NB Liquor Store. What’s more, Canvas will be launching a bike program for travellers and Moncton’s first rooftop bar next spring. “Other cities have them,” Hennessey notes. “Why not our vibrant city? Watch for the High Five rooftop lounge coming soon.”

Until then, guests will simply have to enjoy the large comfy beds, deep soaker tubs and unique downtown city views that the rooms at Canvas have to offer. •
