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.
“We are excited to develop our first dual-branded property, especially with two of Hilton’s latest brands” Mitch Patel, president and CEO of Vision Hospitality, said in a statement. “Furthermore, having the opportunity to partner with such premium brands and develop this project in Atlanta’s expanding market emphasizes Vision’s ongoing growth strategy.”
The property is part of Vision’s expanding pipeline of 16 branded hotels currently under development. The hotel is the company’s second Tru by Hilton brand. Vision’s Tru by Hilton Atlanta/McDonough was the first to begin construction in the United States and opened its doors in the summer of 2017.
