AC Hotel Phoenix Downtown opens at Arizona Center despite pandemic

A new hotel has opened in downtown Phoenix amid perfect weather, a smattering of room reservations and bountiful hope for a revival in personal and business travel.

The new AC Hotel Phoenix Downtown debuted Thursday afternoon, roughly two years after construction began. The opening was delayed about a month by supply issues tied to the pandemic but not due to weakness in tourism.

“We felt confident enough, not just with our brand but with the location,” said Brian Robinson, the hotel’s general manager. “It’s a wonderful location, and we felt the timing might be just about right.”

Grassy urban location

The 199-room, 13-story boutique hotel sits on what was a grassy patch near the northeast corner of Arizona Center on Fifth Street north of Van Buren Street. An outdoor patio and firepit area spills out onto a grassy section of the Arizona Center near shops and restaurants. The patio will feature live concerts and other entertainment designed, in part, to attract local residents, said Melissa Balthazor, the hotel’s director of sales.
