On November 12, the bustling Price Corridor in Chandler will be home to the city’s very first full-service Marriott hotel. Located at Price Road and Wills Road in the Park Place development, the Marriott Phoenix Chandler is not only the largest legacy brand full-service Marriott in the state, the property features the greatest amount of hotel conference space in the area. It is managed by Cincinnati-based Winegardner & Hammons Hotel Group, LLC., an affiliate company of the Pyramid Hotel Group, which is one of the predominant hotel management companies in the United Sates.
The Marriott Phoenix Chandler is filling a large void in the business travel and conference sector in the Price Corridor. It boasts the largest hotel conference space in the area with more than 28,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event venues. The hotel can accommodate meetings and events of all sizes, up to 1,000 people. Marriott Phoenix Chandler offers more than 20 different spaces, including a large ballroom that can be divided into four separate rooms, as well as eight different breakout rooms, most with natural light and/or direct patio access. Also, there is a private dining room for more intimate gatherings, as well as poolside and lawn spaces for enjoying the mild Arizona weather. To round out these amenities, Marriott Phoenix Chandler offers full catering and event planning services. For the frequent Marriott traveler, the Marriott Phoenix Chandler has a spacious M Club, an ideal spot for elite level members to lounge or catch up on work.
“Before even opening our doors, we’re seeing a great interest for the Marriott Phoenix Chandler’s meeting and conference facilities. We know we’ve hit the mark with filling a need in the area’s business development and growth,” said Brent Menzel, General Manager, Marriott Phoenix Chandler.
The expansion of the Price Corridor as a major employment center has been nearly 40 years in the making. In 2001, the area’s growth was further accelerated after the Loop 101 freeway was extended south to the Loop 202 freeway, making it easy to get anywhere in greater Metro Phoenix. Now a major tech hub, the Price Corridor is home to more than 540 companies, including 15 of which are on this year’s Fortune 1,000 list. Seven businesses employ more than 1,000 workers each, and the area is teeming with more than 40,000 employees. Adding to the growth in the area, the new Marriott Phoenix Chandler employs more than 100 team members.
“Chandler is thrilled to welcome the Marriott Phoenix Chandler to the Price Corridor, which brings our largest event space to our largest employment corridor; a natural fit for our many business travelers,” said Chandler Mayor, Kevin Hartke. “The addition of an upscale, full-service hotel will further the city’s reputation as a meetings destination and will be a great asset for Chandler, while continuing the city’s economic growth.”
