Question Tapestry vs Curio collections - Differences/Similarities

So, what is the difference between the Curio & Tapestry collection hotels ? With so many Hilton sub-brands it's tough to figure out which is which ? Both are supposed to be unique independent boutique hotels. Is that the case or is there any blurring ? They have these brands in some of the bigger US cities . What is their appeal ? Are they cheaper or more expensive than say the Homewood, Home2 or Hampton. Or should I be less adventurous and just stick with these basic Hilton brands as I would at least know what I am getting with them ? And I just hate the Tru period !

You can read the Hilton statement about the differences in the brands when they were talking about another brand that they are going to create here:
New Hilton Brands (Likely Coming in 2018)
Curio hotels are supposed to be 4-star independent hotels; Tapestry, 3-star independent/boutique hotels. Their appeal obviously is that they are smaller more boutique type properties. They are not like Tru. I have not been dissatisfied with the curio properties I have stayed at. Maybe you should read some of the threads for the Curio and Tapestry properties to see what they are about.

Thanks - I had no idea of the specific differentiation between Curio and Tapestry in terms of the level/quality. It always seemed blurry to me.

Join the club. I used to work in the hotel industry and the proliferation of brands today makes my head spin.

Then, imagine the confusion a "regular" person who thinks quality is tied to price must feel when they search for a hotel in an expensive major metropolitan area.

I recently stayed at the Renwick (Curio) and the Bernic (Tapestry) in NYC. I enjoyed both and feel both had far more character than Homewood or Hampton.
