InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the 290-room Crowne Plaza Phoenix Airport hotel as the newest addition to the portfolio of Phoenix hotels in the IHG family of brands. The 10-story property, a conversion from an independent hotel, has undergone a significant multi-million dollar renovation, and is the third hotel for the Crowne Plaza brand in Phoenix.
“We are pleased to expand the Crowne Plaza brand in a major US market, especially in such a convenient location for business travellers,” says Gina LaBarre, vice president, Americas Brand Management, Upscale Brands, IHG. “We know our guests need to be productive when they’re on the road for work, and our hotels offer the service and amenities that enable them to be successful.”
Guests can take advantage of a variety of amenities that support business travellers, such as a 24-hour business centre, 24-hour airport shuttle service and 18,000ft² of meeting space – including 13 meeting rooms and a ballroom. The hotel also offers complimentary covered parking for hotel guests and a well-equipped fitness centre. Guests can enjoy full-service dining and bar services at The Post – which offers contemporary American cuisine – and Perch – which serves signature beverages and light eating options.
Funded by CHPH, LLC, all guest rooms, meeting spaces, public areas and dining facilities have been renovated in a contemporary style with soothing muted tones. Additionally, a 2500ft² deck has been added to the outdoor heated pool.
“We’re incredibly excited to align ourselves with a major upscale global hotel brand focused on productivity,” says Darlene Heavlin, the hotel’s general manager. “Our unique location as the airport’s closest hotel and direct connections to public transport and airport services enable us to attract both traditional business travellers and airline crews.”
