Homewood Suites by Hilton and Tru by Hilton Albany Crossgates Mall

Share

 

Quaint boutique hotels and charming rustic inns aren’t the only games in town. Global brands like Hilton are also bringing something new to the Valley. In October 2018, Hilton opened the dual-branded Tru by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Crossgates Mall in Albany.

The appeal of the dual-brand concept to travelers is that there are larger communal areas and amenities compared to a traditional single-brand hotel. Both hotels are under one roof; shared amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, an outdoor patio with grills and a sports court, and an indoor saline pool.
