Scottsdale, AZ (January 8, 2013) - Pillar Hotels & Resorts is excited to kick off 2013 with continued growth in its management contract portfolio with the addition of the 101-room Hampton Inn & Suites Scottsdale Riverwalk. Located at The Alter Group's 187-acre Riverwalk Arizona mixed-use business park, the hotel is adjacent to dynamic business and leisure attractions such as Casino Arizona at Talking Stick, the new Arizona Design Center, and the new Salt River Fields, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies new training facilities.
Developed by Branson, Missouri-based HCW, LLC, the property's design harmoniously blends with existing structures and the Scottsdale area's landscape and natural terrain. Utilizing vibrant colors found in the local desert landscape, the color palette is derived from Sonoran Desert earth tones in a native basket weave pattern.
Stephanie Box, Regional Director of Operations, and Kristen Freeman, Area General Manager, will head up the Pillar leadership team responsible for the property. "We enthusiastically welcome the Hampton & Suites Riverwalk to the family of Pillar Scottsdale-area properties. Now 8 properties strong, we offer a dynamic range of products to visitors traveling to the Phoenix, Chandler and Scottsdale areas. This new product and its superb location places our guests within walking distance of Talking Sticks Resort and Casino", said Freeman.
"We're excited to be connected to one of Arizona's most dynamic business environments. With over 600,000 square feet of retail space and 1.5 million square feet of Class A office space, Riverwalk is one of the country's largest developments on Native American land and will create up to 15,000 new jobs", said Box.
