Spokane-based GL8 Hospitality LLC is breaking ground this week on a Tru by Hilton property in Spokane Valley, marking the brand’s first in the state.

The 43,000-square-foot, four-story building will be at 13509 E. Mansfield Ave., east of CenterPlace Regional Event Center.

The hotel, which will have 92 guest rooms, is expected to open in fall 2020.

GL8 Hospitality LLC purchased the more than 1-acre site in November from Centennial Properties, a subsidiary of Cowles Co., which also publishes The Spokesman-Review.

Tru by Hilton is an affordable hotel brand with “cross generational appeal” that features efficiently designed rooms, a build-your-own “Top It” breakfast bar and an “Eat and Sip” market with gourmet snacks and drinks, according to Hilton.

Tru by Hilton properties offer mobile check-in, digital room keys, a fitness center, indoor pool, a social media wall and a large public space for guests. Each property showcases murals inspired by the surrounding neighborhood.

GL8 Hospitality LLC is having a groundbreaking event at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the construction site.

Hilton has a portfolio of 17 hotel brands with nearly 6,000 properties nationwide. Tru by Hilton has 100 locations nationwide, including a property in Idaho Falls that opened in June.
