Hilton has been on an opening spree this week, with two properties opening in the Southwest and one making its debut in Virginia.
Old Town Scottsdale’s first new hotel in more than a decade has opened. The new 177-room Canopy by Hilton Scottsdale Old Town has approximately 2,000 square feet of meeting space, two new dining venues under the direction of chef Patrick Gaudet, a rooftop pool and a fitness center. Dallas-based Studio 11 Design handled the aesthetics.
“It’s amazing to see our vision for the hotel come to life as the entire team has put their best effort into embracing the historic arts community while delivering a new destination that will become a gathering place for locals and guests alike,” said Devin Mahoney, general manager and chief enthusiast of Canopy by Hilton Scottsdale. “Within the hotel, we’ve honed in on the spirit of the Southwest in every aspect of its architecture, design, art and culture, and have created a truly local experience that captures the essence of our neighborhood whether you’re looking to work, play or rest in Old Town Scottsdale. There’s really no other new hotel like it in the area.”
The latest Tru by Hilton has opened in Manassas, Va., close to Innovation Technology Park, Old Town Manassas and Manassas Regional Airport.
The 98-room hotel is owned and managed by Holladay Hospitality Group, and has a 2,880-square-foot lobby with areas for guests to work, relax and eat along with a 24/7 "Eat. & Sip." market. The hotel also offers mobile check-in, Digital Key, lobby tablets and accessibility to outlets. The hotel’s fitness center has a barre, TRX bands, free weights, cardio, and flexibility gear.
Meanwhile, Donohoe Hospitality Services, a division of Donohoe, has opened the new-build dual-branded Hampton Inn & Suites/Home2 Suites by Hilton Las Vegas. The hotels are adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is undergoing a $1 billion expansion, 1 mile from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and have easy access via the monorail to the Strip.
The Hampton Inn & Suites has 150 guestrooms while the Home2 Suites has 100 suites. The hotels share common amenities including a lobby, dining facilities, a cocktail lounge, 1,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a pool, exercise rooms, a business center and onsite parking.
“The hotels are well-positioned to capitalize on Las Vegas’ development renaissance that includes the expansion to the Convention Center, the Oakland Raiders' recent move to Las Vegas, and Elon Musk’s company building an underground transit loop to move convention attendees in and around the center,” said Thomas Penny III, president of Donohoe Hospitality Services. “We see these hotels as an important long-term contribution to Las Vegas’ future, offering visitors an excellent option for accommodations near the Las Vegas Convention Center.”
