Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Debuts Updated Meeting Space

By Beth Buehler

The 1,003-room Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, has wrapped up a comprehensive $4 million renovation of its 110,000 square feet meeting and event space and introduced a new Sheraton Club. It is the final phase of the property’s extensive top-to-bottom renovation as part of Sheraton’s worldwide transformation of guest experiences.

Function Space

Phoenix Ballroom

The meeting and event space renovation includes new acoustic boards, lighting, carpet, wall coverings, furniture, and artwork across the second- and third-floor meeting spaces including pre-function, Grand Ballroom, Junior Ballroom, and all meeting rooms.

Valley of the Sun Foyer

Designed by Dallas-based Looney & Associates, the refreshed spaces reflect the overlap of the natural beauty of the desert and vibrant city life through alternation between neutral tones and gold highlights in the decor and broad strokes of color and abstract forms in the carpet. Rippling textures, warm hues, and desertscape motifs are weaved into the artwork selected for the new look.

Sheraton Club

On the first floor, the new Sheraton Club is available to Marriott Platinum members and guests who purchase Sheraton Club access. The club transitions throughout the day and features food and beverage offerings, enhanced connectivity, a water filling station, and lockers to store luggage and laptops.

Earlier Phases of Renovation
The property was one of the first to integrate Sheraton’s new signature key elements including revamped guest rooms, a 19,000-square-foot social lobby lounge, and Sheraton Fitness Center. The improvements were unveiled in April 2021, followed by a new signature restaurant, Carcara, in March 2022.

Anchoring the lobby is the brand’s signature community table, an inviting workspace that allows guests to work, eat, and drink surrounded by the energy of the hotel. In addition, soundproof booths for making phone calls and six studios for small meetings are strategically placed throughout the lobby. The glass-enclosed studios, ranging in size from 125 to 600 square feet, are ideal for remote working and collaborating or celebrating with an intimate group. Guests can book the spaces through an on-demand booking system, control the lighting and temperature, and order food and drink for delivery.
