ONIX Group is proud to announce the opening of its latest hotel, Tru by Hilton, 301 College Park Lane, just off Route 113 in Georgetown, which officially opened its doors June 27. To celebrate the opening, an open house was held with remarks from Mayor Bill West and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Tru by Hilton, the fastest brand to market in Hilton’s history, brings next-level quality, affordability, innovative design, and signature Hilton comfort to the midscale hotel market.
The hotel offers 90 rooms, each with a mobile desk as well as a 55-inch TV. Guests have access to a fitness center, business center, indoor pool and patio. Tru by Hilton’s unique lobby is seamlessly broken into four distinct areas, and gives its guests plenty of options: Eat, Work, Play and Lounge.
A mural wall, located in the Play area, portrays the historic Circle of Georgetown and highlights the hotel’s close proximity to the area’s attractions, like Sports at the Beach, DE Turf, and Dogfish Head brewery.
“We are very excited about this hotel opening and the opportunity to bring the first Tru by Hilton to Delaware,” said Jonathan Silver, vice president, ONIX Group. “There is a heavy sports culture in the Town of Georgetown, and we chose this brand to create a fun and unique place for visiting teams to stay. The families that come to the area are going to fall in love with this hotel. Whether you’re coming to Georgetown for business or pleasure, we believe the Tru has everything to meet your needs.”
The development cost for the hotel was approximately $12 million, the project brought 80 construction jobs, and created 20 permanent hotel jobs.
