The Tru Hilton Hotel on Memorial Drive in Chicopee opened just in time for college commencement season.
The four-story, 108-room hotel opened its doors less than a month ago.
General Manager Nicole Bambury told 22News, many of their guests came to attend college graduations in Hampshire County.
She’s optimistic for the future for Chicopee’s newest hotel.
“With the casino coming to town, there’s a lot of business that’ll be coming to this area,” said Bambury. “You can see behind me, our local mural wall. There’s a lot of different activities for people to enjoy while they’re in the area. So we’re excited business is really booming.”
The Tru Hilton Hotel employs 20 full and part-time workers in Chicopee.
Bambury anticipates a 30-percent increase in staff during the summer busy season.
