Five-month renovation brings modern aesthetic, enhanced amenities and full business services to the burgeoning Phoenix neighborhood
Phoenix, AZ, January 19, 2015 (Newswire.com) - North Phoenix got a fresh addition to its hotel portfolio last week with the opening of the Radisson Hotel Phoenix North. The newly-flagged Radisson® boasts a modern design scheme, fresh amenities and the Yes I Can!SM service philosophy the brand is known for after partners R.A. Rauch & Associates, Brixton Capital and Dan Norville applied their industry expertise to transforming a once-struggling property.
“Radisson Hotel Phoenix North is a testament to a strong partnership between the hotel’s owners,” said Robert Rauch, President and Founder of R.A. Rauch & Associates. “The combination of financial, construction and management know-how will serve the hotel and area well and we look forward to serving as a hub for business and leisure travelers alike.
The 284-room hotel closed for a five-month, $8 million renovation helmed by Norville, a construction industry expert; capital partners Brixton Capital, who specialize in commercial real estate transactions; and management firm R.A. Rauch & Associates, who will bring their management expertise into all aspects of guest relations and hotel operations.
The modern and contemporary hotel design, executed by Greenwood & Black; has a chic and energetic look across the property. Featuring shades of blue and yellow with red accents throughout, the color scheme adds a punch of vibrancy that speaks to the Phoenix landscape. Guestrooms sport new carpet, fully remodeled bathrooms and fresh soft goods and mattresses; while a renovated lobby features new flooring, wallpaper, paint, bold regional artwork, enhanced seating and lounge area and a sundries shop. Recreation-minded travelers can get moving in a new fitness room with Life Fitness equipment, individual TVs with complimentary earbuds and free weights. The remodel also includes a resurfaced pool, whirlpool and lounge deck; as well as over 14,000 square feet of meeting space updated with state-of-the-art sound systems and AV equipment to serve Phoenix’s many businesses and corporate travelers. Brixton Pub, offering classic pub fare and comfort food with a European flair, will keep guests satisfied around the clock. The hotel offers guests complimentary access to Wi-Fi, complimentary parking as well as a free shuttle.
The Radisson Phoenix North is located at 10220 N. Metro Pkwy E. and is adjacent to the Metro Center Mall.
