The Spokane Journal covered the announcement noting that Spokane Valley-based owner Grant Guinn, GL8 Hospitality LLC plans to complete construction of the 92 room hotel by October 2020. Hilton's newest brand, Tru already has 80 locations nationwide. The article says Guinn stated the amenities will include a heated indoor swimming pool and hot tub, a business center, a fitness center, complimentary 'Top It' breakfast bar, private work spaces, game spaces for social interaction, and bike rentals for use on the nearby Centennial Trail, and that project manager Phil Richardson, of Chicago-based Aspen Venture Group Inc., said "(It's) a very bright, cheerful guest experience that's built around the openness of the lobby and encourages people to sit, relax in the lobby, and work on their laptops".

Article also says the hotel will be managed by Covington, Kentucky-based Commonwealth Hotels LLC which manages 43 properties with 5,300 guest rooms.
