Tru by Hilton Opens First Hotel in Mexico
In a year of continued growth, Hilton’s innovative hotel brand, Tru by Hilton, officially announces the opening of its first property in Mexico and its second in the Caribbean and Latin America. Tru by Hilton Monterrey Fundidora is located near the bustling city center of Fundidora, as well as top attractions such as Arena Monterrey. The 120-room property is owned and managed by Hoteles BL De Mexico SA.
Developed from the ground up using consumer and owner feedback, Tru by Hilton offers a hotel experience that is vibrant, affordable, and young at heart. The brand promises guests a simplified and spirited stay rooted in value.
“The opening of Tru by Hilton Monterrey Fundidora is a testament to the brand’s tremendous growth and its ability to meet our guests’ evolving needs in destinations they want to travel,” said Andrew Harp, brand leader for Tru by Hilton. “Since opening our first property in the Caribbean and Latin America in early 2022, we have been looking forward to expanding our presence to give guests a truly unique hotel stay.”
Tru by Hilton Monterrey Fundidora is the first property in the Caribbean and Latin America to feature the brand’s new prototype inspired by the region with new room layouts, an updated exterior and color palette, and localized food and beverage offerings. The property features signature elements that guests know and love, including the large lobby called The Zone, with areas for guests to work, play games, eat and lounge. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s complimentary build-your-own “Top It” breakfast bar with healthy, sweet and savory items, along with a 24/7 “Eat & Sip” market with gourmet snacks and drinks. Additionally, Tru by Hilton properties offer guests fitness centers that leverage the latest fitness trends which may include barre, resistance bands, free weights, cardio and flexibility gear.
“As we expand Tru’s footprint in the Caribbean and Latin America, we are grateful to partner with experienced owners to introduce this vibrant brand in sought-after markets to meet the demand of the global traveler,” said Juan Corvinos, senior vice president of development for architecture and construction in Caribbean and Latin America for Hilton. “We are excited to welcome guests to Tru by Hilton Monterrey Fundidora and look forward to delivering our renowned hospitality in a second Tru property in Mexico with Tru by Hilton Saltillo expected to open in 2025.”
