PHOENIX—Hyatt Place Phoenix/Downtown is set to open in the heart of Phoenix’s revitalized downtown area in September of 2021. The new 238-room, eight-story hotel is a modern and intuitively designed hotel for the leisure and business traveler. The property has a full-service restaurant, 24-hour dining, 24-hour fitness, and is surrounded by a vibrant neighborhood.
“Hyatt Place Phoenix/Downtown is an ideal location and product for our world-class city, with the Orpheum Theater and Phoenix Convention Center steps away,” said David Belk, area general manager for Pacific Hospitality Group. “The vibrancy of the local area and what used to be known as theatre row is an exciting backdrop for us to build a prime destination for visitors to Phoenix.”
Hyatt Place Phoenix/Downtown is owned and managed by Pacific Hospitality Group (PHG) out of Irvine, California and was built in partnership with Mortenson, a Minneapolis-based real estate and development company.
“We are excited to work with both Hyatt and Mortenson on this hotel,” said Garrett Busch, vice president of capital markets for Pacific Hospitality Group. “This opportunity is particularly meaningful to us as it is our second property in the greater Phoenix area and is in an opportunity zone, which allows us to be part of this area’s revitalization.”
“As part of the Phoenix community, we are also thrilled to be able to build a team that shares a love for the Phoenix area. Our team is steeped in the Phoenix scene, from the Chamber of Commerce to the local culinary community,” added Belk. “We hope to bring that to every guest who comes to stay with us.”

· 238 spacious guestrooms including seven suites, each with separate spaces to sleep, work and play, as well as a Cozy Corner sofa-sleeper
