While it is deemed "old news" by media standards, I still find it fascinating. It broke ground in Late Match 2017** and construction is now well underway. The Midwest's first Tru by Hilton Hotel is expected top open in the Spring of 2018. The hotel is also the first of the brand to adventure into St. Louis' shaky real estate market. While the rendering shows the hotel being 4 floors, it will be five in reality with 87 rooms catered to Millennial Travelers and money saving individuals who want to stay on a budget, but don't want to get bed bugs. The hotel is also rising in the new "Streets of St. Charles" region of St. Charles Missouri.
The streets of St. Charles can hold this hotel as well thus making the development become even more dense than it already is. On the Northern edge of the development, an 8 floor Drury Inn and Suites is wrapping up construction and beginning to open. But that hotel is to expensive for some travelers, so the Tru Hotel is meant to address this. Rooms start at roughly $100 a night depending on the date the traveler chooses. But that price can change but never will go above $120 a night and below $75 a night. A good deal when the area it is in is taken into consideration.
Outside the hotel's front door, entertainment (AMC Movie Theater) and dining await you as well as condos and office space. The Streets of St. Charles also has another Office Building in the works that could reach 10 floors. As the hotel rises and awaits opening its doors to guests, other Tru hotels are being planned for around the St. Louis region. According to Anonymous sources, one is planned for South St. Louis City and another for the Midtown region of the City. We will possibly learn about these around the time this hotel opens in Spring 2018 or after it opens.
Watch the Fox 2 News Story below on the hotel if you haven't seen it.
*- Updates will be available on the project as time goes on
**- Story was originally broke in March 2017. I believe that I should report on it regardless.
