Hilton Expands Multi-Brand Footprint with New Dual-Flag Hotel in San Antonio
Introducing Tru by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton San Antonio Lackland SeaWorld as a new lodging option for business and leisure travelers visiting the San Antonio area
SAN ANTONIO and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Tru by Hilton San Antonio Lackland SeaWorld and Home2 Suites by Hilton San Antonio Lackland SeaWorld. Located near SeaWorld San Antonio and Lackland Airforce Base, the property is a unique new addition to San Antonio’s lodging offerings. The hotel expands Hilton’s growing footprint of multi-brand properties in the state.
“We’re delighted to open the dual-branded Tru by Hilton and Home2 Suites San Antonio Lackland SeaWorld and offer business and leisure travelers visiting San Antonio an innovative and value-driven lodging experience,” said Nick Naik, president of Baywood Hotels southwest region. “Bringing together 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 single-branded property, benefiting both business and leisure travelers. The hotel has a mix of unique offerings — each catering to the needs of their respective guests — including designated lobby and dining areas. The property also has a variety of shared amenities including 24-hour fitness centers, indoor pool, outdoor firepits/grills and an indoor game area including a pool table and a large variety of board games.
The four-story property, developed and owned by Baywood Hotels, is located at 9911 Ingram Rd. and boasts 183 rooms, with 73 Tru by Hilton rooms and 110 Home2 Suites by Hilton suites. Conveniently situated in the west side of San Antonio, the hotel offers guests easy access to SeaWorld San Antonio, Lackland Airforce Base, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, The Alamo and San Antonio Riverwalk.
Tru by Hilton San Antonio Lackland SeaWorld features the amenities and experiences that matter most to guests, including comfortable beds, smaller, more efficiently designed rooms with a mobile desk, large bathrooms with premium bath amenities, top-rate in-room entertainment, a complimentary build-your-own "Top It" breakfast bar with healthy, sweet and savory items, vibrant lobby with areas for guests to work, play games, eat and lounge, along with a 24/7 "Eat. & Sip." market with gourmet snacks and drinks. The hotel experience is enabled by technology including mobile check-in, Digital Key, super-fast free Wi-Fi, remote printing, a social media wall, lobby tablets and accessibility to outlets everywhere. Additionally, Tru by Hilton properties offer fitness centers that leverage the latest fitness trends including barre, TRX bands, free weights, cardio and flexibility gear.

The hotel also features complimentary Internet, inviting communal spaces and trademark Home2 Suites amenities such as Spin2 Cycle, a combined laundry and fitness area, Home2 MKT for grab-and-go items and the Inspired Table, a complimentary daily breakfast that includes more than 400 potential combinations.
