Hotel, located near business offices and spring training facilities, will serve Phoenix tourism industry with 103 suites and useful amenities.

 PHOENIX (February 14, 2018) – Hospitality management company Baywood Hotels broke ground on its newest property in Phoenix. Baywood will build and manage a new Home2 Suites by Hilton. Its location in central Phoenix and proximity to Sky Harbor International Airport will serve a varied crowd, including business travelers and spring training fans.

 Home2Suites by Hilton offers suites ideal for extended stays, with customizable guest room design, complimentary Wi-Fi, community spaces, a pet friendly environment, and convenient amenities like laundry, a fitness area and a 24-hour business center. Baywood Hotels, which will manage the Home2 Suites property after it is built, employs over 2,500 nationwide. The 103-suite hotel will help create more tourism jobs in Phoenix when it opens next year.

 The project is being funded by OneAZ Credit Union, a local financial institution that serves members across the state of Arizona. “Something both of our organizations have in common is a desire to improve the communities we serve,” said David E. Doss, President and CEO of OneAZ Credit Union. “We’re proud to support Baywood Hotels, the local community and Phoenix tourism in this venture.”
