MCLEAN, Va. -- Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) midscale hotel brand, Tru by Hilton, is increasing its presence across the South with three new property openings in Little Rock, Arkansas; Meridian, Mississippi and Louisville, Kentucky. Tru by Hilton is committed to meeting the needs of both owners and guests by delivering a consistent product that doesn't sacrifice a quality experience over price. These three properties join six properties currently open in the southern region of the U.S., with nearly 30 additional properties expected to open in the South this year.
