Omni Hotels & Resorts has broken ground on Omni Tempe Hotel at ASU in the heart of downtown Tempe on the Arizona State University campus.
Set to open in 2023, the 16-story hotel that’s located at 7 East University Drive will augment Tempe’s revitalized downtown area, and bring some of the largest conference and meeting space to the city. The hotel is a $125 million investment and part of a public-private partnership with ASU and the City of Tempe.
As a lifestyle hotel that’s reflective of its natural surroundings and the unique local culture of Arizona, Omni Tempe Hotel at ASU will feature 330 guest rooms, including 11 suites, four dining outlets, a spacious pool deck, retail, and almost 36,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting space with expansive views of the ASU campus and the Arizona cityscape.
The hotel’s design elements highlight Tempe’s local and cultural landscape, integrating ASU’s modern, industrial feel with Arizona’s rich desert hues. Contrasts of Arizona’s light and shadow create texture and patterns that will mingle with the hotel’s accents of concrete, leather, metal, and natural materials. Other nods to the ASU campus can be found throughout the hotel, with abstract artwork of library books, artwork from local artists and alumni and library-esque tables in the lobby bar area.
With four culinary outlets planned, each outlet will serve unique and locally inspired cuisine. From a coffee bar that evolves into a cocktail bar by night, to a pool bar with views of the Tempe skyline, there are food and beverage offerings available all-day to satisfy every palate. Guests and Tempe locals will also enjoy expansive views from the rooftop restaurant and lounge that will feature indoor and outdoor, covered space and bold design elements that celebrate the Arizona cityscape.
Guests will enjoy elevated pool deck with a lounge and recreation space, a retail space with curated, authentically local goods, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
Meetings & Events
Boasting almost 36,000 square feet of meeting and event space, the hotel will include four meeting rooms, one board room, two ballrooms and an event lawn, allowing for events to flow from indoor to outdoor. Boasting the largest, continuous ballroom in Tempe, at over 15,000 square feet, the grand ballroom features high ceilings, a neutral color palette and the ability to configure the space to accommodate every group, meeting, wedding, or social event.
