STREETS OF ST. CHARLES ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF TRU BY HILTON, THE BRAND’S FIRST LOCATION IN THE MISSOURI MARKET
(Peoria, IL, June 22, 2018) – Tru by Hilton St. Charles St. Louis, the brand’s first location in Missouri, opened its doors to guests Friday, June 22nd. While the property is welcoming guests immediately, an official ribbon cutting ceremony and open house celebration will take place August 8th.
Tru by Hilton St. Charles St. Louis is the latest opening for the new, midscale Tru by Hilton brand, which has more than 470 projects in various stages of development. The five-story hotel, located at the south end of the property across from Mission Taco, includes 87 guest rooms and a modern environment with cross-functional public spaces. The hotel is owned by St. Charles Hotel Associates and is managed by Kinseth Hospitality Companies.
“When we created the vision for Streets of St. Charles, a primary goal was to encourage gathering and build community through a unique mix of experiences on the property,” said Christopher M. West, Cullinan Properties Partner and CEO. “That’s also a primary goal for the Tru brand, which not only values the importance of gathering spaces within the hotel, but also of providing guests with the ability to quickly and conveniently access dining and other amenities to round out their overall experience with the brand. We’re excited to welcome Tru by Hilton to Streets of St. Charles and support their efforts to make guests’ visits as enjoyable as possible.”
“Streets of St. Charles and the City of St. Charles have welcomed us with open arms, and we’re now excited to invite guests to experience Tru by Hilton,” said Bruce Kinseth, Executive Vice President of Kinseth Hospitality. “This completely new concept offers stylish, comfortable rooms and plenty of common space to work and socialize. We look forward to being a part of this property, and this community, and are confident that guests will be delighted with their stay.”
Tru by Hilton St. Charles St. Louis’s opening coincides with the summer season of outdoor activities taking place at Streets of St. Charles, including the Beale Street Concert Series, free outdoor performances featuring popular local bands the second Wednesday of each month through October. Yoga on Beale, a monthly outdoor yoga practice the second Saturday of each month through September, is also underway. Both are open to the public and offer additional opportunities for Tru by Hilton guests to enhance their experience.
