DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Tempe opens in Arizona, undergoes renovation

DoubleTree by Hilton and Driftwood Hospitality Management opened the DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Tempe in Arizona. In anticipation of its conversion to Hilton Worldwide's full service brand, the former Fiesta Resort underwent a five-month, $3-million renovation that includes enhancements throughout the hotel's 270 guestrooms, updates to the public spaces and outdoor areas of the hotel, as well as revamping the food and beverage offerings. The hotel's updates complement the more than 30,000 square feet of meeting, convention and exhibit space.

Inspired by the architectural style of Frank Lloyd Wright, the DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Tempe has a traditional Southwestern design. Classic copper accents are incorporated throughout the hotel's interior décor, and new lighting and landscaping enhance the hotel's outdoor setting. On-site amenities include the Absolute Vitality Spa where clients can indulge in a selection of specialty spa services, a heated outdoor swimming pool where guests can enjoy live poolside entertainment, an indoor whirlpool and a 1,500-square-foot 24-hour business center with windows overlooking the hotel's courtyard.

The hotel joins the company’s three existing properties in the greater Phoenix area, including DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix-Gilbert, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Phoenix Airport Hotel and DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Paradise Valley - Scottsdale.
