Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Worldwide’s (NYSE: HLT) award-winning brand of hotels, announced in December the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix Downtown, in the building that was once Phoenix’s historic Professional Building.

This 12-story building, located on Central Avenue and Monroe Street, has 170 guest rooms while the entire building play homage to its origins.

The building was constructed in 1931, and has been renovated and restored for guests. The building features original marble floors, Deco-era Corinthian capitals, bronze elevator doors and original wrought iron details.

“We worked very closely with our partners at Historic Consultants in Los Angeles to return the building to its former splendor,” said Steve Schlundt, chief operating officer of CSM Lodging and Residential. “We’ve taken painstaking care, using old photos for comparisons, to recreate many of the unique features of the lobby that had been removed under previous ownership, however, many details have remained in tact for the better part of a century. The workmanship is remarkable.”

The building was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1993. It has a original limestone façade featuring classic Art Deco embellishments in the form of Phoenix birds intricately carved into the exterior above the entrance along Central Avenue, along with original bronze work above the main doors, and ornate window panels along the second floor roof line.

Once home to Phoenix’s historic Professional Building, the hotel is owned by and managed by Minneapolis-based CSM Corporation, and is truly distinctive.

Unique nods to the original building continue throughout, as check-in desks feature bronze inlays made from the original Valley National Bank teller desks, while the “entrance” sign at the elevator lobby will remain original to pay homage to the last 84 years; missing an “e” that was likely lost in one of the building’s former transitions.

The Garden Grille offers a full cooked-to-order breakfast every morning, and diners can enjoy an easy lunch or casually upscale dinner inside Nook Kitchen, the hotel’s anchor restaurant.

The hotel features a lobby bar, Monroe’s. The Hilton Garden Inn also has a rooftop terrace, known as Floor Thirteen, which offers guests additional space to experience panoramic views of The Valley while dining, meeting or enjoying a sunset drink.

For guests with late-night needs, The Pavilion Pantry is open 24 hours and features a complete selection of salty snacks, sweet treats, cold beverages, and microwaveable items.

Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix Downtown, modern, high-end amenities  welcome travelers to sleep deep, stay fit, eat well and work smart while on the road. Guests can also enjoy valet parking along with complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24-hour business center with printing places, remote printing and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The hotel also features meeting rooms offering more than 2,600 square feet of flexible meeting space for up to 200 people.

The rooms feature fresh, white duvets and crisp linens; a spacious and clutter-free work desk with an ergonomic desk chair; and an in-room “hospitality center” with a mini fridge, microwave oven and Keurig coffee maker.

Due to the unique architecture of the building, each standard room features at least two windows, with suites offering up to eight large windows with impressive views of the city streets below. The hotel’s signature Hitchcock Suite offers a tribute to the filmmaker who featured the building in the opening sequence of “Psycho,” and features the only private terrace in the hotel.

“We look forward to welcoming guests to our stunning new hotel in downtown Phoenix,” said Michelle Davis, general manager.

Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix Downtown is located at the heart of the city, conveniently situated near Phoenix’s most prominent financial, government and entertainment destinations.

With Chase Field, Talking Stick Resort Arena, the Orpheum Theater, Phoenix Symphony Hall and Comerica Theatre just a short walk or light rail ride away, there’s never a shortage of places to visit and things to do. Business travelers will enjoy the hotel’s proximity to some of the state’s largest corporate headquarters, along with the Phoenix Convention Center, Capitol Building and Arizona State University’s Downtown Campus.
