The hotel, connected under one roof, will be located near the northeast corner of Happy Valley Road and Norterra Parkway, according to a press release.

The hotel is being developed by Texas’ Jackson-Shaw and Tucson’s Holualoa Companies.

Jackson-Shaw and Holualoa Companies will celebrate the development with a media event at the hotel’s location on May 21 from 9 to 11 a.m. Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and Councilwoman Ann O’Brien are expected to attend the event.

Local non-profit companies St. Vincent de Paul and the Phoenix Police Foundation will each receive $5,000 to celebrate the start of the project, according to a press release.

What will be at the new hotel?

The four-story property that will house both hotels will feature 274 guest rooms. The AC hotel will have 179 rooms, while the Element will have 95.

The three-acre development will feature an 8,000-square-foot convening center and ballroom, two deluxe suites, two communal rooms, a fitness center, a courtyard with a saline pool and a spa and event lawn.

The hotel’s development is expected to provide 60 full-time and 20 part-time jobs.
