Visitors to Allen will soon have another place to stay the night.
Council members approved the plans for Tru by Hilton during the Nov. 8 meeting. The four-story hotel will be constructed just west of US 75, northeast of the Wal-Mart Supercenter.
The plans call for 95 guest rooms. As a “limited service” hotel, the space will not offer any dedicated restaurant or banquet facilities. The building will be accessible by the same private drive that connects the southbound US 75 frontage road to the parking lots of Wal-Mart and Cracker Barrel.
Construction is expected to begin in April 2017 with anticipated opening in April 2018.
