A new project under construction in Lancaster will feature a rare dual-branded hotel operation, with two different Hilton brands side-by-side under the same roof when it opens next year.
The four-story facility under development by Emerald Hospitality Associates Inc. will include both a Home2 Suites and a Tru by Hilton, with a total of 165 rooms - 86 extended-stay suites with kitchenettes for Home2 Suites and another 79 Tru rooms.
Dubbed the Home2 Suites & Tru by Hilton, Williamsville Buffalo Airport, the building will have two front desk check-in areas, two breakfast and lobby areas, and a single pool and fitness center. The brands will share the laundry, break room, housekeeping storage and other common operations areas.
This is the first dual-branded hotel for Westlake, Ohio-based Emerald, an 18-year-old firm that operates 24 Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt hotels in eight states. The project is being built at 48 Freeman Road and is slated to open in March.
