There’s a new era on the horizon for Old Town Scottsdale, as the team behind the coming-soon Canopy by Hilton Scottsdale Old Town announced today that the property is nearing completion and is expected to open its doors in late September, marking what will be the first new-build hotel opening in the area in more than a decade.
Designed as a natural extension of Scottsdale’s historic arts district, the full-service hotel will deliver a local experience and 177 guestrooms and suites that strike a balance between contemporary elegance and impeccable design on the northeast corner of First Street and Marshall Way. Along with approximately 2,000 square-feet of meeting space, the hotel will also feature two new dining concepts including a signature, ground-floor restaurant showcasing cuisine with an emphasis on Southwest touches and locally sourced ingredients, plus a rooftop pool and bar that will elevate the Scottsdale social scene with crafted cocktails, posh bites and unrivaled views of the iconic Camelback Mountain.
An Arizona native, Devin Mahoney has been appointed as general manager and chief enthusiast of the property bringing more than 16 years of experience to the team. Amanda Nance has been hired as the director of sales and marketing.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the expansion of the city’s historic arts district and offer a new hotel experience that gives locals and travelers a new destination to work, rest and play within Scottsdale,” said Mahoney. “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.”
Taking direction from the fine arts and artisan community surrounding it, Canopy Scottsdale will bring the persona of its neighborhood indoors by intricately combining dramatic natural elements with curated artwork by local artists and a rich color palette inspired by Arizona’s sun-drenched vistas. A highlight within the hotel will be the signature “Canopy” headboard, designed by Dallas-based Studio 11 Design, that will be fashioned from eclectic local wood and etched with copper and uplighting in order to replicate the sun retiring behind Camelback Mountain.
Staking its claim in what is arguably the best location Scottsdale has to offer, guests will find themselves at the crossroads of the unmistakable energy pulsing through the city and world-class dining, shopping and entertainment destinations just a short walk or bike ride away including Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, Scottsdale Stadium and Scottsdale Fashion Square.
Canopy Scottsdale is owned by Miller Global Properties, which is a national investment company and the parent company of Mile High Hospitality, which the hotel is managed by. Ryan Companies is the general contractor.
