Canopy by Hilton to open in downtown Tempe by early spring
PHOENIX — The heart of downtown Tempe is about to welcome a new hotel brand.
Canopy by Hilton is planning to open its first Southwest location at University Drive and Myrtle Avenue, near Arizona State University, in April.
The full-service hotel will include 198 rooms and suites, about 5,000 square feet of event space, a ground floor restaurant, a boutique atmosphere and the only full service rooftop pool in the East Valley.
The hotel’s interior will embody the “the spirit of the Southwest” as well as feature work from local artists, according to a press release.
“We look forward to bringing a brand-new hotel, restaurant and rooftop bar to the city of Tempe and the East Valley, filling a niche for an elevated, yet approachable lifestyle destination for locals and business professionals alike,” General Manager Alan Klein said in the press release.
“With an innovative design inspired by the neighborhood surroundings, our hotel guests will be able to discover all that downtown Tempe offers with our complimentary transportation, Canopy bikes and a local welcome gift upon check-in. We are all about delightful extras to help our guests relax and revive.”
The hotel’s location is 5 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and within walking distance to Tempe Beach Park and Arizona State University’s Desert Financial Arena.
