The cost-friendly Tru by Hilton brand has opened a new hotel in Brooklyn.

Let’s take a look!

First Tru by Hilton Hotel in New York City

Tru by Hilton Brooklyn has 101 rooms and is catered to business and leisure travelers visiting the Big Apple on a budget. All rooms feature large TVs, walk-in showers, storage space, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Amenities include a breakfast bar, a business center, a fitness center, and — a rarity for New York — a parking lot.

The hotel is situated between Park Slope and Gowanus, 2 popular neighborhoods in Brooklyn. It is approximately 1 block from the Union Street subway on the R line, which serves many popular destinations like Times Square, Fifth Avenue, and Canal Street.

“We are thrilled to introduce the Tru by Hilton brand to New York City, and provide travelers with a fun and modern lodging option in one of Brooklyn’s most exciting destinations,” said Andrew Harp, brand leader, Tru by Hilton.

Bottom Line:

Tru by Hilton is 1 of Hilton’s most affordable brands, falling under the “Elevated Essentials” umbrella. The brand offers daily free pancake breakfast and amenities like hot breakfast and free Wi-Fi at an affordable price. You’ll find more than 250 Tru by Hilton properties across the Americas. This is the brand’s first property in New York.

How To Book Tru by Hilton Brooklyn With Points

Tru by Hilton Brooklyn is now open for guests. It is part of the Hilton Honors loyalty program, which means you can earn and redeem Hilton Honors points here.

Cash rates are moderately priced for a hotel in Brooklyn, starting at $260 per night this July.

Even for a 2-star hotel, award prices are steep. Award nights average 80,000 Hilton Honors points per night for a standard room this summer. However, you may be able to find some rooms starting around 74,000 points per night during that period.

Given the high point redemption rates at Tru by Hilton, you may be better off saving your Hilton Honors points and booking a cash stay.

Luckily, earning Hilton Honors points is simple, even if you decide not to use them for a redemption at this hotel. You can earn them through a Hilton co-branded credit card, transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards, take a Lyft, or dine out with Hilton Honors Dining.

Final Thoughts

Hilton Honors travelers looking for an affordable (at least in cash) option in New York need to look no further than the Tru Hotel in Brooklyn. While it’s still a budget hotel, it does offer free breakfast, parking, and easy access to many of the Big Apple’s hottest attractions!
