The City of College Park in a press release Tuesday announced plans for two new Hilton property hotel developments. Home2 Suites and Tru Hotel, both located near the Georgia International Convention Center and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s ATL Skytrain and Rental Car Center, are slated for openings in February 2022.
“As we look toward the future, we are eager to add more hotel options for both visitors and locals, traveling to College Park for work or play,” Artie Jones III, College Park’s director of economic development and executive director of Clearly College Park, said in the release. “These new builds not only indicate the continued economic progress in our city but also create space for people from far and wide to experience our local businesses, restaurants, and community life.”
With Aziz Dhanani as the principal developer, the two hotels will begin construction this fall, at 2101 Convention Center Concourse.
Home2 Suites will offer 188 king and queen studios and one-bedroom suites. The pet-friendly hotel will feature an outdoor grilling area and lounge, additional meeting spaces, and laundry facilities. The design is more sustainability-focused with low-flow showers, faucets, and toilets.
Meanwhile, Tru Hotel will offer 126 single king and double queen rooms in three different packages to choose from: Glitter, Spark, and Burst. Each package features different designs and color schemes. The hotel also has a joint fitness facility with Home2.
“In such close proximity to the world’s busiest airport, and in an area booming with development, these properties will not only provide seamless travel access for all hotel guests, but will also generally be appealing for both one-night and longer stays,” Dhanani said. “From games and shows at the Arena to conferences and conventions at the GICC, selecting this area for these properties felt like the natural fit.”
