Old Town Scottsdale’s newest hotel expected to open in September

For the first time in more than 10 years, a new-build hotel is set to open in Old Town Scottsdale.

The Canopy by Hilton Scottsdale Old Town is expected to open its doors in late September.

The seven-story hotel, on the northeast corner of First Street and Marshall Way, will have 177 rooms and suites and 2,000 square feet of meeting space.

The Canopy by Hilton also will be home to two new dining concepts: a ground-floor restaurant that will emphasize Southwest cuisine made with local ingredients as well as a rooftop pool and bar.

This will be the second Canopy by Hilton-branded property to open in the Valley this year. The first opened earlier this summer in Tempe.

Canopy by Hilton is one of the newer brands being developed by Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HLT). Canopy by Hilton locations are designed to have a local feel and be attractive to younger travelers. The brand has 20 locations around the globe and more than 40 under development across 14 countries and territories.

“With curated, local experiences being at the core of everything we offer, we’re looking forward to the hotel becoming a gathering place for both locals and guests to pop-in before a meeting for a coffee and gourmet breakfast bites from the grab-n-go counter, take out a Canopy bike to explore the surrounding shops and art galleries, and enjoy an innovative cocktail from the rooftop bar with friends overlooking the city from seven-stories high,” said Devin Mahoney, the property’s general manager, in statement.

Mahoney has hired Amanda Nance as the director of sales and marketing for the Canopy by Hilton Scottsdale Old Town.

Canopy Scottsdale is owned by Miller Global Properties, a national investment company. Miller Global Properties also is the parent company of Mile High Hospitality, which is managing the hotel.

Ryan Cos. is the general contractor on the project, while interior design was done by Dallas-based Studio 11 Design.

Even though hotel and lodging is one of the hardest hit industries by the economic downturn caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Valley is expecting a number of new hotels to come on line during the next year. In June, experts from CBRE told the Business Journal the Valley will see a 3.1% increase in hotel room supply, which is more than double what the rest of the country is expected to see.
