Vision Hospitality building its first dual-branded hotel

The property is set to be the first dual-branded hotel in Vision Hospitality's portfolio.

Vision Hospitality Group began construction on the dual-branded Home2 Suites & Tru by Hilton in Atlanta/Kennesaw Town Center. Projected to open in the spring of 2019, the property will be Vision’s first dual-branded hotel in the company’s growing portfolio.

The 170-room hotel will combine two complimentary Hilton brands to better accommodate today’s modern traveler. The Tru by Hilton will provide a streamlined experience for short-term guests, and the Home2 Suites by Hilton’s all-suite accommodations will provide for guests’ extended-stay needs. The hotel will include large communal spaces and amenities such as mobile check-in, a social media wall and charging stations. Additional features include a Precor equipped fitness facility, outdoor saltwater pool and 24-hour business center.

Located off of Interstate 75, the property will provide access for guests traveling to and from downtown Atlanta. The hotel is located within walking distance of the Town Center at Cobb, catering to travelers visiting Northwest Atlanta’s main shopping destination. The hotel also offers a commute to Kennesaw State University and the numerous businesses in the metro-Atlanta area, which will accommodate both families visiting collegians and corporate travelers.
