Hilton-branded Hotels Near Completion On Market Street

International news
After several years of construction, two Hilton-branded hotels are finally nearing completion on Market Street.

Work on the Tru- and Tapestry-branded hotels at 5001 Market St. has moved into its second phase, according to Seraj Patel, vice president of developer CN Hotels. Both hotels are expected to open for guests early this summer.

A hotel on the site previously operated as an AmeriStay Inn and Ramada Inn until Greensboro-based Seraj Enterprises Inc. purchased the building and surrounding four-acre lot for nearly $3.2 million in 2017, according to property records.

The project received building and renovation permits from New Hanover County in 2020 and work on the site has been ongoing ever since. Once open, the two hotels will have a combined total of 207 rooms.

Hilton’s Tapestry Collection is a more boutique brand that offers guests “unique style and vibrant personality, encouraging them to connect to their destination and enjoy authentic, off-the-beaten-path experiences,” Hilton’s website states. Downtown Wilmington’s Hotel Ballast is part of the Tapestry Collection.
