We were in Ft Wayne for just one night for a concert. Good location with numerous restaurants nearby. The staff was great, friendly and helpful. Lobby was bright and open with lots of areas to meet up with friends. Tru does not have your typical hotel room, no dresser, closet or cushy chair in the rooms but it was clean and comfortable. Probably not the best for an extended stay but I did enjoy my night there and would go with Tru again. Price was comparable to the Hampton in the same area.

This was our first experience at a TRU property, and to be honest, we weren’t all that impressed. Other than the sleek décor (which is kinda cool), it’s a pretty standard $80-90 a night hotel. Nothing special and nothing to make you go “wow”. One of the problems, at least at this location, is the noise coming from both the adjoining room and the highway. We could hear the entire conversation the folks next to us were having…..and it went on late into the night (for the life of me I can’t figure out why they would put guests right next to each other when they had plenty of empty rooms, and could have spread people out). Then there was the issue of what sounded like a motorcycle race track right outside our window. All night long we could hear blaringly loud traffic…at times it even drowned out the AC. I get it that the hotel can’t help if the traffic is loud, but it’s enough to makes us not stay there again.

As other people have said, the rooms are pretty small…but since we didn’t plan on doing cartwheels or playing touch football in the room it wasn’t an issue for us. I will say that, if you’re traveling on business, and you plan on doing work in your room, forget it. The “desk” they give you is like sitting at a long TV tray; it’s pretty useless. On the other hand, the drive-in screen size of the television is ridiculous. TVs that large are meant to be viewed at a distance, and not six feet away in a bed. I’m sure it’s a great TV, but when you’re sitting that close it becomes all grainy.

All of this, however, is small potatoes compared to me finding long black hairs in the shower stall. What that tells me is that housekeeping either, one, didn’t clean well, or, two, didn’t clean at all. In this environment…meaning the world of Covid-19…a hotel room should be friggin’ SPOTLESS. That in and of itself is a deal breaker.

The only interaction we had with the staff was at the front desk. Both in the evening when we checked in, and the next morning, the person there was very friendly.

Stayed her two nights on February 7th & 8th, 2020 with my wife and daughter. All in all a very good stay. Clean comfortable rooms, bright colors, very European flavor, nice big bathroom with plenty of hot water, my daughter noted the numerous plug ins for devices. Frig in the room, no carpeting, so not stink and no stains are a plus. My wife loved the comfort of the bed and the pillows. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff - they get customer service. Really nice lobby area that is stocked full of snacks and has a pool table and plenty of seating areas so that we could get our Show Choir Group of kids and parents together to sit back and have some pizza and basically socialize. I noted that a youth basketball team was doing the same thing. Great locations, felt safe, no issues parking, multiple elevators with little wait time. Pool the kids used was reported as clean and warm with a hot tub and workout room. Complimentary breakfast was solid and many choices to include fresh fruit and it was stocked and cleaned. Staff is very attentive even asking our group if there was anything the wanted before shutting the service down just after 10:00am. 55 inch flat screen with all the channels you'll need in the room. Only negative is that you can hear other hotel guests walking on the floor above you some of the time. Really didn't affect my family but if you are a light sleeper you might hear it. If I was in the Ft. Wayne area again I would without hesitation stay here again. I really think Hilton is on to something with this Tru brand, it's different and my family liked it a whole bunch. So did other families in our Show Choir Group.

We stayed 2 nights for a basketball tournament nearby as did others. I read the reviews ahead and had no worries about our upcoming stay. I expected the room to be small and it was actually just fine for us. We were only in the room a short period of time and to sleep. Everything was very clean and nice. The bathroom was also very nice, including the glass shower. I had never seen the squeeze soaps before but they worked well, no complaints. Even the shower had shampoo, conditioner and body soap for you which is a nice convenience for those that don't mind using anything provided. I personally always bring my own but I did use their body soap and it had a nice scent. We all seemed to sleep well and were rested the next morning. You do hear others quite easily in the hall but it never bothered us or woke us up so no complaints there. We really loved the lobby area with the cube furniture and another section for gathering because we had a large group of parents/kids and were able to hang out before and after the games. We also ordered pizza and used the countertop in the lobby. I was not expecting much for breakfast due to covid, some places only give a brown paper sack with some items but this hotel actually had some things laid out for you to grab and you could use their juice machine. I thought it was a nice assortment, there were bagels both regular and Udi's gluten free prepackaged (cream cheese only condiment), packaged hard boiled eggs with 2 per pack, yogurt, bottled water, muffins, clementines and you could get a breakfast sandwich upon request....it was prepackaged so you open it and just throw it in the microwave. We will be back again for the upcoming tournaments if we need to stay overnight. Tru offers blue tooth key access from your phone to get into your room if you choose not to stop at the front desk for a card. We tried this since we lost our card and it worked perfectly so it's a nice option vs pulling out a key card whenever you want to get in.

The only downfall to this hotel was it was pricey. That said, it was graduation night for many schools in this area so ALL the hotels seemed pricey on this day.

The staff was VERY friendly, helpful and pleasant.

The hotel lobby was welcoming and comfy. We actually sat with our daughter, who we were in town to visit with in the lobby the morning we left, and it felt like setting in a living room!

Breakfast is offered with your stay, it was sufficient! The breakfast area was clean and being monitored by the two gentlemen working that morning. This crew was very attentive, clean up after people and restocking breakfast as each item ran low. They did a great job!

The rooms are simple but clean, comfy and provide "endless" supply of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, hand soap, in convenient bottles mounted by the bathroom sink and in the shower.

There is a gym and a pool at this location, we did not use these facilities but we did pop in to see these rooms. They both were clean and looked in good shape.

Over all, I would book this hotel again.

This hotel is conveniently located to restaurants and shopping. It is a newer hotel and was nice and clean! The room does not have carpet which is great since my wife has dust allergies. It also has a big TV with many channels. The bed was comfortable but only had three pillows. There was a small refrigerator in the room and the free internet worked well! The room and the bathroom had plenty of space. The complimentary breakfast had a nice variety of items and the people working this area and the front desk were very attentive. I will stay at a TRU hotel again in the future!

Had no microwave anywhere, no dresser drawers, a tiny end table with no storage, only 1 lamp at bedside, no closet and room was smaller than expected for the high price. I would've got more for my money at a larger hotel. Super clean with no carpeting...this I loved.

We loved the clean, modern feel and furnishings of this hotel, especially the lobby with gathering space and billiard table. Very fresh, non-traditional feel to both the rooms and main areas. Breakfast toppings bar is great with plenty of quick choices and make your own pancakes.. even the bath products smell great and make you happy.

Staff was especially welcoming, attentive and friendly - special shout out to Patrick working the desk and lobby the evening we were there.... he was the epitome of Tru concept hospitality. Will definitely stay here again next time in town.

Bright - Fun - Clean

I loved the look of the hotel (reminded me of my trip to Sweden)… pool table and boards games in the lobby (along with work stations) make this a great option for any traveler.

Breakfast was full of tasty options… oatmeal, bagels, omelettes, fresh fruit and yogurt, etc.

Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Room was clean with a smart design/layout. Mattress was a little firm for my liking,but still had a good nights sleep.

We would definitely stay here again.

This was my first time at a Tru by Hilton but it definitely won't be my last. The hotel appeared to be new but the desk clerk said it has been open about 4 years. Both of the rooms we had were very clean & had everything we needed. I really like the soap, shampoo & lotion dispensers, it makes more sense than little bottles. Beds were comfortable, linens were great & I liked the hard flooring, it felt so much cleaner than carpet. All of the staff were very friendly & all seemed to be enjoying their jobs. The only negative I have is the air freshener being used in the lobby & common areas was too heavy of a scent, overpowering to those of us with allergies.
