Hilton's midscale hotel brand, Tru by Hilton, is increasing its presence across the South with three new property openings in Little Rock, Ark.; Meridian, Miss.; and Louisville, Ky. These three properties join six properties currently open in the southern region of the U.S., with nearly 30 additional properties expected to open in the South this year.
“As we approach the one-year anniversary of the first-ever Tru opening, we are proud to be a game changer in the midscale segment and equally proud of the growth we’ve achieved in this short time,” Alexandra Jaritz, global head, Tru by Hilton, said in a statement. “As the first Hilton brand in this space, we continue to look for opportunities to innovate and iterate our current offerings to ensure we’re meeting the needs of our guests and owners.”
