PHOENIX — The Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix underwent a $35 million renovation last year, according to the Phoenix Business Journal.

The renovation is the “largest amount spent on a hotel renovation” in the Valley over the last year, according to the publication. It was unveiled last year, with upgrades that included a new lobby, upgraded guest rooms and new poolside cabanas.

The hotel has been a staple in the Valley since 1929 and has “consistently” updated its look, even when the Great Recession hit in 2008.
