About the Hotel and Design
Canopy by Hilton Philadelphia Center City officially opened our hotel and The Wayward restaurant doors on August 3rd 2020. And we just cannot wait to welcome everyone! We are one of the newest boutique hotels in Philadelphia, located within the newest East Market Development in Midtown Village Neighborhood of Center City offering a truly one of a kind product! As Hilton's luxury/lifestyle hotel, guests can enjoy the personal touches of a boutique hotel while enjoying the Hilton brand benefits. Our prime location offers guests easy accessibility to all of Philadelphia's ultimate destinations.
Housed in a beautiful adaptive reuse of the original 1896 Stephen Girard Trust Building, we have completely transformed the interior into the perfect juxtaposition of historic art deco and modern lux while preserving the exterior in it's iconic original design. We searched high and low for one of a kind curation of artworks throughout every corner of the hotel from Philadelphia region based artists. What better way to capture a day to remember in the most historic city with history, art and modern looks! Your wedding photos will be sure to impress.

Our ceilings in the meeting room feature a pop of color in geometric shapes to tie in the hip hop culture of Philadelphia. The high ceilings and ample windows along the wall welcome in plenty of natural light. Our glass doors are heavily frosted to create a space that is private yet not closed in.

About The Wayward
French sailor turned American powerhouse, Stephen Girard was always known for his headstrong and rebellious attitude. It's what pushed him to leave his home in Bordeaux, France and travel the world, conquering New York City's shipping and trade industry before docking in Philadelphia to build a life. Fromt there, Girard went on to build a number of successful business in banking, construction, policitcs and philanthropy to better Philadelphia.
We named this restaurant The Wayward as a tribute to Girard's spirit, his life at sea, and his legacy as a successful entrepreneur. Much like Girard, we sway toward the unconventional. Our menu is focused on American classics, while taking notes from beloved French bistros, and our oyster and gin selections are some of the best in the city. Where locacls and wonderers go to meet! Our catering is done in house by The Wayward serving an eclectic menu that inspires for some great food for events!
