Phoenix Airport Marriott Completes Phase I of Multi-Million Dollar Renovation

CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Columbia Sussex, one of the largest Marriott franchisees in the country,
continues its aggressive renovation program to at least nine of its
Marriott owned and operated properties. Known for its proximity to
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the vibrant downtown Phoenix
scene and Major League Baseball’s spring training venues, Phoenix
Airport Marriott
has completed Phase I of its multi-million dollar
renovation, which includes all guest rooms, suites and pool area.

Being a sports-centric city, the hotel has played host to NBA All Star
Terry Porter, number one NBA draft pick Deandre Ayton, MLB Announcer
Harold Reynolds, several college athletic teams, scouts from various MLB
teams, including the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Angels, New York Mets,
Kansas City Royals, and the Cincinnati Reds to name a few.

Phase II will include public and meeting spaces, the restaurant,
bar/lounge and Marriott’s signature Greatroom lobby, and is expected to
be complete in spring 2019. The hotel’s design is inspired by the Greek
myth of the phoenix bird that regenerates itself, raw elements, rich
desert tones and energetic geometric patterns that take guests on a
sophisticated journey.

Phase I: Guest Rooms and Pool

With a base of warm, modern textures, the new guest room color palette
reflects the Valley of Sun’s Sonoran desert and the Salt River Valley.
All 347 guest rooms, including two presidential suites, have been
renovated to reflect this design philosophy using wood, and earthy tones
that Valley of the Sun is known for, coupled with a modern and upscale
twist reflecting Marriott’s modern aesthetic.

Many guest rooms with balconies overlook the serenity of Camelback
Mountain and the South Mountain Range. The Concierge Level, Mountain
View Hospitality and Parlor Suites are perfect for small functions,
meetings or for overnight stays and can be configured to include up to
two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and sofa bed. With more than 750 square feet
of living space, two-bedrooms, and three-baths, the two Parlor Suites
are the largest sleeping rooms in the hotel. The rooms adjoining the
Parlor Suite have a king-sized bed with beautiful views of South
Mountain. The luxury furnishings include a spacious Parlor with a
55-inch flat screen television, an eight-seat dining table, a fold out
sofa and kitchenette.

Room rates start at $279.95. Each luxurious guest room is designed for
optimal rest and productivity with architectural framing, contrasting
