Hilton (NYSE: HLT) yesterday announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Tru by Hilton Smyrna Nashville and Home2 Suites by Hilton Smyrna Nashville, bringing a total of 167 new rooms to the Nashville area. The dual-branded hotel complements a tourism boom for the city, which saw a record high in the tourism industry with 14.5 million travelers last year.
Developed and owned by Smyrna Hospitality Holding, LLC and managed by Dream Hospitality, Tru by Hilton Smyrna Nashville and Home2 Suites by Hilton Smyrna Nashville are located at 960 Colonnade Drive, offering guests access to Nashville’s biggest attractions including the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame, Bridgestone Arena and LP Field.
The dual-brand concept creates enhanced and larger communal areas than what would be standard for a single brand, benefiting both business and leisure travelers. The hotel has two distinct dining areas – each catering to the needs of their respective guests – as well as a shared 24-hour fitness center and outdoor heated pool for guests to unwind.
“As one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations in the country, we’re excited to add our fifth Home2 Suites by Hilton property in the Greater Nashville area, bringing even more extended-stay options for those visiting this vibrant city,” said Adrian Kurre, global head, Home2 Suites by Hilton. “This new property will provide not only value-added features, such as spacious suites and complimentary breakfast, but also unique amenities that add convenience and comfort for all guest experiences.”
