Driving east from Las Vegas back to the greater Atlanta metropolitan area meant that I would be passing by a Tru by Hilton hotel property; and as I had never stayed at one, I thought I would try it out — especially as I was to earn 1,000 bonus Hilton Honors points during this promotion, which has since expired.
