TruckPark announced last month their first step to building a Superplatform by adding hotels to its robust booking engine, TruckPark Reserve. The third hotel to join is First Heritage Inn in Rantoul, IL. The partnership with hotel owner, Nick Patel, is to provide 6 reservable parking spaces for commercial trucks at his location and the option to reserve an overnight hotel stay in the process. TruckPark is a Chicago-based company committed to improving the truck driving experience using technology to overcome the problem of finding safe and secure parking.
The hotel is located directly off Interstate 57 in Rantoul, IL and kitty corner to S Murray Rd and Broadmeadow Rd. The facility is secure with a surveillance and 24/7 hotel staff. 6 secure spaces are available for drivers who use the TruckPark app and park overnight.
