A new hotel is in the works at a site in Leland's Waterford community.

Clarendon Properties LLC is developing a tru by Hilton Hotel to be managed by Crown Hotel & Travel Management, according to a Crown news release. Both companies are based in Wilmington. 

The hotel, which will be adjacent to the Harris Teeter grocery store at Waterford, is expected to include 93 rooms, an indoor pool, continental breakfast, and other amenities.

The same group owns the Holiday Inn Express Leland-Wilmington Area in  Magnolia Greens.

“We have always been pleased with the performance of our Holiday Inn Express Leland-Wilmington Area and believe it’s time to add another hotel. Leland is a vibrant town with the type of growth we look for when evaluating new sites,” said Barry Eagle, president and CEO of Crown Hotel & Travel Management, in the release.

He said the partnership involved has submitted an application for the new property that will hold the hotel.

Eagle said tru “is the fastest growing hotel brand right now and we hope to have this new hotel be under the tru by Hilton brand.”

Clarendon Properties president John Sandlin stated in the release, “Clarendon Properties is looking forward to working with Crown to develop another hotel in the area. We are excited to start on this new project in the rapidly growing Leland area.”

According to the release, Crown Hotel & Travel Management will be posting updates on the Leland tru hotel and other projects in development on its various social media pages and website. According to its website, tru by Hilton hotels are also under development in Garner and Smithfield.

Crown Hotel & Travel Management is a veteran-owned third-party management company with properties throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The company operates and franchises hotels and licenses vacation ownership resorts under several brands, including Hilton, Marriott, IHG, Wyndham and Best Western.
