Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has been selected to manage a new, luxury boutique hotel in Tempe, Ariz. The 237-room, new build hotel is part of One Hundred Mill, a mixed-use development scheduled to begin construction this November.
Year to date alone, Kimpton has announced six new management contracts and added hotels to the brand portfolio in Seattle, Pittsburgh, Huntington Beach, San Francisco and Washington, DC, with two more slated to open before year’s end in Austin and Vermont. The Tempe property also deepens the brand’s presence in Arizona, which has popular hotels in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Sedona.
With a targeted opening date of late 2017, the new luxury boutique hotel and surrounding retail and office high-rise development, owned in a joint venture by San Diego-based Douglas Wilson Companies and Hensel Phelps Development, will be located at the corner of Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway. Once completed, the Tempe Kimpton will have 237 guestrooms, 12,000 square feet of indoor meeting space and a 4,750-square-foot rooftop pool and terrace lounge, along with a fitness center and a full-service, Kimpton-managed restaurant and bar venue.
Located in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area and home to the largest public university in the US, Arizona State University, Tempe is considered the technology center of Arizona with major Fortune-500 companies operating facilities in the city, including Microsoft, Go Daddy, Monster.com and Limelight Networks.
