Canopy by Hilton, a 177-room hotel in Pike & Rose, opened Thursday, according to Federal Realty, which manages the North Bethesda development of stores, restaurants and residences.

The hotel is part of an upscale brand run by multinational hospitality giant Hilton. It features 12 suites and 34 queen rooms, and bedrooms include open-concept closets, 55-inch TVs and Nespresso machines.

Canopy, which sits on Rose Avenue, also has 7,700-square-feet of event space and serves food from local farms and beer from local breweries including 7 Locks Brewing in Rockville, Waredaca Brewing in Gaithersburg and Jailbreak Brewing in Rockville.

It’s estimated to accommodate 65,000 guests annually, hotel officials said at the ribbon-cutting ceremony last March.

Residents started moving into 930 Rose, the condos directly above Canopy, this month as well.

A number of retail businesses and restaurants are expected to open in the North Bethesda development this year, including a Nando’s Peri-Peri and Taylor Gourmet beneath Canopy.
