DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Tempe

PHOENIX, AZ—DoubleTree by Hilton and Driftwood Hospitality Management have opened the DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Tempe.

Formerly the Fiesta Resort, the hotel underwent a five-month, $3-million renovation that includes enhancements to the property’s 270 guestrooms, public spaces and outdoor areas, as well as the f&b offerings.

Inspired by the distinct architectural style of Frank Lloyd Wright, the hotel features a traditional Southwestern design nestled in a serene landscape, according to the company. Classic copper accents are incorporated throughout the hotel’s interior décor, and new lighting and landscaping enhance the hotel’s outdoor setting.

Amenities at the hotel include more than 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting, convention and exhibit space; the Absolute Vitality Spa; a heated outdoor swimming pool; an indoor whirlpool; and a 1,500 sq.-ft. 24-hour business center. Milagro’s Restaurant, the hotel’s all-day dining venue, offers a menu of seasonal farm-to-table fare, and features a wood-burning fireplace and new patio furniture on the terrace. Other f&b venues include Kachina Lounge, which serves tapas-style dishes with a southwestern flair.

Located just four miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix Tempe offers 24-hour complimentary shuttle service for guests traveling between the airport and hotel. Other nearby attractions include Tempe Beach Park, the Mill Avenue District, which features over 100 dining, shopping and nightlife options, SEALIFE Aquarium, the ASU Karsten Golf Course and Tempe Diablo Stadium.

This is the fourth DoubleTree in the Phoenix area, following the DoubleTree by Hilton Phoenix-Gilbert, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Phoenix Airport Hotel, and DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Paradise Valey-Scottsdale.
