A new Hilton hotel will open this summer, known as the low season, in the Phoenix area, giving Valley residents a possible new staycation spot.
The Home2 Suites by Hilton is currently under construction and will open in July at 2490 W. Queen Creek Road in Chandler.
The 70,148-square-foot, 126-room, four-story building is the first of its kind in Arizona, and is geared toward extended-stay travelers.
“Every Home2 Suites hotel was designed to incorporate features that take the extended-stay concept to a new level, including expanded community spaces, flexible room configurations and enhanced breakfast offerings that assure guests have a varied selection no matter how long they stay,” said Bill Duncan, global head of Home2, in a statement.
The hotel is under the management of North Central Group, which previously developed and ran the Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn Suites in Chandler, and currently manages the Courtyard and Fairfield Suites & Inn in Chandler.
A representative for North Central Group also said that the company wanted to open Home2 Suites in Chandler because it is a “dynamic market and a great area.”
Kekoa Morton will be general manager and David Smith will be sales manager.
