Columbus Welcomes Newest Dual-Brand Hotel, Home2 Suites by Hilton and Tru by Hilton Grove City
Hilton expands dual-flag footprint in Ohio with new lodging option for business and leisure travelers visiting the Columbus – Grove City area
COLUMBUS, Ohio and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Home2 Suites by Hilton and Tru by Hilton Columbus Grove City. Located near Pinnacle Golf and Country Club and Berliner Sports Park, the property is a unique new addition to Grove City’s lodging offerings. The hotel expands Hilton’s growing footprint of multi-brand properties in the state.
“We’re delighted to open the Home2 Suites and Tru by Hilton Columbus Grove City property and to offer business and leisure travelers visiting the area an innovative and value-driven lodging experience,” said Alan Assaf, chief operating officer, Indus Hotels. “Blending these two category-leading brands and their signature – yet unique – identities under one roof furthers 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 – including designated lobby and dining areas. The property also offers a variety of shared amenities, including indoor pool, Spin2 Cycle fitness center and outdoor terrace with firepit. Additionally, the hotel offers 729 square feet of flexible meeting space.
As Tru by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, some services and amenities have been adjusted in order to adhere to health and safety guidance from local government. To emphasize our commitment to the health and safety of guests, the property is participating in the Hilton CleanStay Program with Lysol Protection to deliver an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection. Our elevated processes and Team Member training have been developed with RB, maker of Lysol and Dettol, to help Home2 Suites and Tru by Hilton Grove City guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to check-out. New standards for Hilton CleanStay that have been rolled out include a Hilton CleanStay Room Seal to indicate that a room has not been accessed since being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, “knock and go” dropped-off room service, and flexible housekeeping options.
The four-story property, developed and owned by Indus Hotels, is located at 1750 Buckeye Place, Grove City, OH, and boasts 182 rooms, with 91 Tru by Hilton rooms and 91 Home2 Suites rooms. Conveniently situated in Grove City, the hotel offers guests easy access to multiple shopping options, restaurants, golf courses and kayak and canoe adventures in Grove City as well as downtown Columbus.
Home2 Suites by Hilton offers spacious, all-suite accommodations with fully-equipped kitchens and modular furniture, providing guests the flexibility to customize their suite to their style and preference. 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 ombinations. Guests can also enjoy an indoor pool, fire pit and grill area. Home2 Suites by Hilton offers a pet-friendly environment.
Tru by Hilton properties feature 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, a 2,880-square-foot 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.
