Hilton Worldwide Launches Tru, A Hotel Brand For Millennials
This week, the Hilton franchise unveiled their latest hotel brand, Tru, a brand grounded in offering value for millennials who have a midscale income in the United States and Canada. While promoting the latest Hilton brand, Christopher J. Nassetta, president and CEO of the Hilton Worldwide, shared: “We are incredibly excited to be launching Tru by Hilton, which will serve the largest segment of the hotel market, but a segment where no brand is meeting guests’ current needs. Tru will provide guests with a high-quality, contemporary, consistent and fresh experience at a great value for customers while at the same time delivering strong returns to our owners.”
Tru by Hilton was also designed for consumers who unite by having a “zest for life [and] human connection.” Although the target guests are millennials, Tru by Hilton will also appeal to those of other generations who possess youthful energy. In a press release, Hilton announced Tru will have the following features:
