Hilton Phoenix Airport Embarks On Property-Wide Transformation

PHOENIX, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Big changes are in the air at one of the largest, full-service hotels at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The 257-room Hilton Phoenix Airport, popular for years with individual business travelers and groups, has commenced a property-wide transformation of its guestrooms and suites, meeting spaces, public spaces and exterior to create a modern, sophisticated hotel experience.  

Under the watchful eye of the hospitality interior design specialists at BCDG Studio, the transformation will harness the area's natural environment incorporating glass, wood and stone with a palette of softened browns, gold and steel greys.

"Striking and sophisticated while still remaining clean and refreshing -- that's the best way to describe the renovation's overall theme," explains Mark Gallagher, general manager of the Hilton Phoenix Airport.  "Our guests will experience the new design scheme in our furnishings, fabrics, artwork, greenery, custom lighting and accessories."

Each of the hotel's 257 guestrooms, including its ten suites, will be completely transformed with Hilton's latest Suite Dreams bedding, all-new bathrooms, furnishings, mini-refrigerators, lighting, televisions and art. 

The renovation will create a fresh, inviting lobby experience with new, guest-friendly registration pods; a new bistro proudly serving Starbucks Coffee, featuring breakfast choices in the morning and wraps and sandwiches for lunch and late-night dining; and a high-energy Connectivity Lounge.

The hotel's Rennick's Restaurant, Rimrock Bar & Grille and guest corridors also will be updated.

The property's transformation includes the renovation of its 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, including its 4,056-square-foot Grand Ballroom and tiered Amphitheatre.  An additional 5,000 square feet of outdoor function space is ideal for receptions and special events.

Guests at the Hilton Phoenix Airport enjoy 24-hour complimentary airport shuttle service, an expanded Fitness Center featuring Precor equipment, room service and poolside service.   An Executive Level floor with private lounge also is available.

The Hilton Phoenix Airport is located at 2435 South 47th Street, 1.5 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.  It also is close to downtown Phoenix, Arizona State University, METRO Light Rail, Scottsdale and Tempe.

The Hilton Phoenix Airport is owned by Waramaug Hospitality LLC and a private investment group in a joint venture with Interstate Hotels & Resorts (www.interstatehotels.com), the leading U.S.-based global hotel management company, which also operates the hotel.
