Development has started on a 210-room, 11-story Hampton Inn & Suites in Downtown Phoenix, near the ASU Downtown Campus, according to an announcement from Mortenson.

The hotel is expected to be completed in the summer of 2018, and is located at the intersection of First and Polk Streets. PK Architects and Design Force are the designers behind the hotel.

This is the second Hampton Inn & Suites Mortenson has developed in the past three years.

“Our site is strategically located to capture hotel demand from the city’s core central business district as well as from ASU and the Phoenix Biomedical Campus,” said Nate Gundrum, director of real estate development, at Mortenson. “The strength of our location, combined with the strength of the Hampton flag will be a great addition to the Downtown Phoenix lodging supply.”
