Xona Resort Suites Scottsdale announces a comprehensive multi-million dollar renovation to their North Scottsdale 12-acre hotel property. Phase I is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of this year as improvements throughout the property include significant room upgrades as well as common area, amenity and restaurant enhancements. The hotel is planning a grand unveiling of their freshened look coupled with another significant new announcement in the fourth quarter.
“Since our hotel remains completely available to our guests throughout this renovation process, we are strategically planning and performing all aspects to ensure guest comfort and their overall experience,” says Xona Resort Suites Scottsdale General Manager, Bruce Pittet. “This has been an open process with our guests as we’ve taken lengthy steps to ask their opinions and suggestions for areas to improve. The current renovations are a result of guest feedback and we are excited to show the progress.”
Enhancing the golf and corporate guest experience, the hotel is investing in substantial in-room comforts and modern improvements. Highly visible elements like new carpeting, natural lighting, contemporary furniture and stainless steel kitchen appliances are all added to the main living spaces of the one, two, three and four-bedroom suites. Softer touches including new kitchen small wares for cooking convenience, supple bedding, updated artwork and painted accent walls increase the ambiance. Technologically, guests will notice significantly faster connection speeds as the hotel’s Wi-Fi system undergoes a sizeable upgrade. Property-wide, all flat screen televisions are HD capable.
Most visible are upgrades in the common areas of the hotel including new fencing and modern lounge chairs which create a consistent, clean look at all four pools. Generating a soft desert outdoor environment are newly installed exterior lighting and landscape architecture. Directional and “way finder” signage will be added in the fall making it simple for guests to navigate the hotel grounds.
With a focus on increasing efficiency, the on-property restaurant, Asada Desert Grille has a behind-the-scenes new kitchen with upgraded equipment. Arranged in a new, effective layout that allows for a smooth flow and facilitates greater capacity, the southwest cuisine eatery can now easily accommodate larger parties and events.
In January 2011, Xona Resort Suites Scottsdale was purchased by Sunstone Realty Advisors, and named O’Neill Hotels & Resorts as property management. O’Neill handles all management functions and daily operations of the 431 room hotel. O’Neill and Sunstone, both Vancouver, British Columbia based firms, have similar partnerships throughout the Southwestern United States.
