Hilton and Opwest Partners to Bring New Hotel to Scottsdale’s Entertainment District
Debuting in 2021, the new build property will deliver a full-service hotel and associated amenities to the downtown area under Hilton’s upper upscale Curio Collection brand
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Opwest Partners and Hilton today announced a signed agreement that will bring Curio Collection by Hilton to Old Town Scottsdale’s Entertainment District. Adding to the brand’s growing portfolio, the property, developed by Opwest Partners, will increase Curio Collection’s presence in the western United States and around the world.
“Curio Collection continues expanding to growing markets like Scottsdale to accommodate the growing trend of unique and one-of-a-kind travel,” said Arizona-based Corey Mitchell, Senior Director of Development Southeast Region at Hilton. “Opwest has designed this property with the guest’s experience at the forefront to provide a unique stay for travelers in the area. In an optimal location with stunning views of the Arizona landscape and close proximity to surrounding entertainment and shopping options, Hotel Scottsdale Old town is a special project that will bring a well-designed, distinct full-service property to the lively neighborhood.”
Located along Camelback Road at the former location of the famed Don & Charlie’s restaurant, the hotel will offer 169 modern guest rooms, 4,500 square feet of meetings and events space, a full-service on-site restaurant, a lounge, a 10,000-square-foot pool deck, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, and retail offerings.
The property will be the first ever soft-branded hotel in the market and is slated to open in early 2021, with construction commencing in the fall of 2019. Once complete, the Curio Collection hotel will bring an upper upscale lifestyle experience to the market and will be a great addition to the growing portfolio of one-of-a-kind hotels.
“We want to deliver an authentic product to the market that will become part of the fabric of downtown Scottsdale,” says Tyler Kent, President & Managing Director of Opwest Partners. “Our vision is that this hotel becomes a gathering place for both locals and visitors alike. We believe there is a lack of product in the market, and we hope to induce demand with a new high-quality hotel offering.”
Opwest is developing the project alongside Argosy Real Estate Partners, an opportunistic real estate investment firm with offices in San Francisco, Philadelphia and Denver.
