Summary

In addition to avid, Oklahoma City was also the city in which the first Tru by Hilton hotel property opened, at which I stayed and reviewed with plenty of photographs. The two brands appear to compete with each other; but although I have yet to stay at one of its hotels, avid appears to be a little less eclectic and somewhat more functional — although there appears to be fewer options for breakfast.

I do not completely get the purpose of the avid brand. This seems to be yet another brand to chase the “millennial” demographic as the core target market — but I have to wonder: if the goal of avid hotels is to “ensure that each guest room is ‘just right’ for all guests by championing everyday travel at a fair price while simultaneously meeting the needs of the guests who all too often have to pay more for things they do not need or compromise on the quality they expect”, what does that say about the other brands of InterContinental Hotels Group?
