Hilton has announced three Tru by Hilton properties are under development in Canada, which marks the brand’s first non-U.S. locations. Located in Alberta, Tru by Hilton Edmonton-Windermere is the first of these properties expected to open in 2018. It will be followed by two additional Tru by Hilton properties in Ontario in 2019.
“Tru by Hilton is an innovator and industry-leader in the midscale segment – the very first to meet the needs of a previously underserved group of travellers who seek simplicity and value without compromising quality and design,” said Alexandra Jaritz, global head, Tru by Hilton.
“We’re incredibly excited to bring Tru by Hilton to the Canadian market. This marks a new chapter for this brand, and we know it will have broad appeal to travellers who span generations, but have a similar ‘zest for life’ mindset.”
The three properties in development are:
- the 92-room Tru by Hilton Edmonton-Windermere, located in Alberta, developed by Rohan Investments Inc. and expected to open in 2018
- The 120-room Tru by Hilton Markham, located in Ontario, developed by Hanisha Incorporated & Lodson Investments Corporation and expected to open in 2019. This property is a dual-brand project with Home2 Suites, Hilton’s all-suite accommodations option for travellers seeking a longer stay.
- The 95-room Tru by Hilton Kingston, also located in Ontario, developed by Canada Ltd., and expected to open in 2019.
When completed, the new hotels will provide guests with smart and efficiently-designed guest rooms and public spaces. Property features include: a reimagined, enlarged lobby with 268 square meters (2,880 square feet) of public space with areas to work, play games, eat or lounge; and modern rooms designed with natural light from oversized windows, 55” TV with a robust programming offer and bright all-shower bathrooms with premium bath amenities.
