Driftwood Takes Over Management of Canopy Downtown Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Driftwood Hospitality Management (DHM) announced it will assume management of Canopy by Hilton Downtown Louisville, a $75 million, 168-room hotel in the city’s historic district. With a portfolio of more than 80 properties, the hotel is DHM’s first in Kentucky and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024.

The expansion into Kentucky highlights DHM’s capabilities in managing hospitality assets in domestic and international markets. The hotel will be developed by New York-based Zyyo, which acquired the site in 2020, and Minnesota-based TruVine Companies. Zyyo is also serving as the project’s architect and construction manager, and Louisville-based Bellé Noble Entertainment Group has been appointed as the hotel’s food and beverage operator.

“Expanding into a new market gives our team the opportunity to serve discerning guests with a customized approach that exceeds expectations,” said David Buddemeyer, founder and president of Driftwood Hospitality Management. “Recognizing the unique aspects of the surrounding location and what it means to visitors to the area, our team looks forward to delivering a rich experience that conveys the local flavor of downtown Louisville.”

The hotel is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2024. It is located near Whiskey Row, Kentucky International Convention Center and KFC Yum Center Arena.

“We always strive to bring a local touch to every hotel we manage, and that’s especially true when it comes to dining options,” said Bryan Postema, COO of Driftwood Hospitality Management. “Whether it’s a poolside cocktail, a scenic rooftop view with carefully curated appetizers, or a luxurious dinner from one of the country’s top restaurateurs, our mission is to provide an unparalleled experience that goes beyond your average hotel stay.”

Under the leadership of Kevin Grangier, founder, chairman and CEO of Bellé Noble Entertainment Group, the hotel will introduce Bourré Bonne Steakhouse, as well as a new rooftop restaurant and bar.

“We look forward to this exciting new opportunity to work on such an innovative project with Nick Campisane and his team at Zyyo,” added Andrew Stevens, EVP Acquisitions & Development, Driftwood Hospitality Management. “He has created a truly exceptional hotel with incredible attention to detail that elevates the guest experience in every way.”

“Since 2019, I have been impressed by the evolution of Driftwood’s management capabilities, as well as their comprehensive ability to maximize the Canopy brand,” said Nick Campisane, Founder and CEO of Zyyo. “It is an honor to partner with them on this project, and I hope it is the first of many.”

Additional on-site amenities will include a fitness center with a juice bar and more than 5,000 square feet of meeting space, including a rooftop ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows.
