SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Embassy Suites, a global brand of upscale, all-suite hotels from Hilton Worldwide, has opened the Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort following a $25 million renovation. Formerly Chaparral Suites, the hotel is the brand’s sixth property in the metropolitan Phoenix area.
Overlooking Camelback Mountain and within walking distance of Old Town Scottsdale’s thriving shopping and nightlife, the refurbished hotel and conference center is less than 11 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and conveniently located near championship golf courses, spa facilities, dining, art galleries and outdoor recreational facilities. It is owned by Snyder Nationwide Real Estate, Inc. and managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts.
“With its extensive renovation complete, this beautiful resort facility offers an urban oasis for Scottsdale visitors,” said Bill Duncan, global head, All Suites Brands. “Whether traveling for business or pleasure, guests are sure to enjoy the high-quality service and wide-ranging amenities that define our growing brand.”
Situated on 15 acres, the sprawling resort features 312 two-room suites and more than 60,000 square feet of meeting space for both indoor and outdoor functions. A unique blend of modern décor with old west flair, the hotel evokes a boutique-like atmosphere with design elements that nod to the area’s historic significance. Among them are a massive lobby painting of Camelback Mountain, walls adorned with Scottsdale art and memorabilia, and natural landscaping with indigenous plants.
The Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort offers the brand’s signature amenities, including its free made-to-order breakfast and two-hour complimentary Evening Reception* with snacks and beverages. Guests may enjoy urban American fare featuring locally-grown ingredients at the Azul Clubhouse restaurant, and unwind with a cocktail at the Granada Bar and Grill. Those preferring to dine in the comfort of their suite may select room service or pick up snacks and sundries in the hotel’s 24-hour convenience store.
The spacious two-room suites include a 43-inch flat screen TV, sleeper sofa, desk and a wet bar featuring a selection of gourmet coffee and teas from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Larger suites include additional amenities, like a conference table or whirlpool, while the Presidential Suite is ideal for a special occasion or intimate meeting.
Relaxation abounds at the hotel’s tennis court and two resort-style outdoor swimming pools, which can be seen through the floor-to-ceiling windows of the adjacent, 2,000-square-foot fitness center. There, exercise enthusiasts can take advantage of state-of-the-art Life Fitness equipment and TV monitors at every cardio station.
“The hotel’s ideal location, distinct features and connection to an iconic brand make it one of the most attractive hospitality options in the region,” said Alan Klein, general manager, Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort. “We are delighted to offer one of Scottsdale’s most unique and amenities-rich properties, and to be part of the Hilton Worldwide family.”
The hotel’s conference facility – one of the area’s most expansive – features three large-scale ballrooms, the largest of which can accommodate up to 1,400 guests for weddings, receptions or other large functions. Also available are two private dining rooms, three private boardrooms and four outdoor terraces for exclusive receptions and social functions.
