Nashville, TN and MCLEAN, VA – July 12th, 2019 – Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Home2 Suites and Tru by Hilton. Located near the Music City Convention Center, Bridgestone Arena and several company Headquarters including HCA and Bridgestone, the property is a unique new addition to Nashville’s lodging offerings. The hotel expands Hilton’s growing footprint of multi-brand properties in the state.
“We’re delighted to open Home2/Tru by Hilton Nashville Downtown Convention Center and offer business and leisure travelers visiting Nashville, TN with an innovative and value-driven lodging experience,” said Rhonda Cunningham, General Manager.
“Blending these two category-leading brands and their signature, yet unique, identities under one roof further propels our commitment to providing quality lodging options to meet a wide variety of styles, travel needs, and desired price points.”
The multi-brand concept provides larger and enhanced communal areas and amenities than what would be standard at a standalone property, benefiting both business and leisure travelers. The hotel has a mix of unique offerings – each catering to the needs of their respective guests. The property also has a variety of shared amenities including:
- A reimagined, enlarged lobby with areas to work, play games, eat or lounge.
- A build-your-own complimentary “Top It” breakfast bar that has 30 sweet and savory toppings so guests can create their own healthy or indulgent morning masterpieces.

- Modern rooms designed to make every square foot count, with natural light from oversized windows, 55” 4K TV with cable provided by DIRECTV and bright all shower bathrooms with premium bath amenities.
- National- and local brand gourmet snacks and drinks – including single-serve beer and wine – are available 24/7 in the “Eat. & Sip.” market located in the heart of the lobby.
- Tech-savvy amenities, including mobile check-in, Digital Key, free superfast WiFi, remote printing, social media wall, lobby and market iPads, super-charging stations and accessibility to outlets everywhere.
- A fitness center that leverages the latest fitness trends through barre, TRX bands, free weights, cardio and flexibility gear, plus guests can get workout ideas from the fitness center tablet.
- Home2 Suites Spin2 Cycle, a combined laundry and fitness area
- Second-floor terrace features an outdoor kitchen, pool, gas grills and canopy seating area
