The $8-million renovation for the Hilton Tucson Eastwas unveiled at a recent celebration commemorating its 30th anniversary. The Tucson Chamber of Commerce, Visit Tucson Tourism along with partners and guests were in attendance to mark this premier full-service business hotel’s three-decade milestone accommodating local and international guests to the Tucson region. Purchased in 2016 by a subsidiary of Caliber Hospitality, LLC, a division of Caliber – The Wealth Development Company and operated by Heavlin Management Company, the hotel is undergoing an extensive property-wide makeover with a contemporary and sophisticated interior design that will elevate the guest experience. Expected hotel renovation completion date is December 2017.
Refurbishment includes complete transformation of all 232-guest rooms with warm interior colors, luxurious finishes and modern amenities. Additional upgrades consist of a new hotel pool, lobby area, meeting rooms/ballroom and modernization of building HVAC and water systems for energy efficiency. A new hotel restaurant and bar concept will also be showcased. The hotel remains open during renovations.
“We are thrilled to invest in the Hilton Tucson East to give it new vibrancy that will clearly elevate and provide an incredible guest experience for travellers and local citizens visiting the hotel,” said Chris Loeffler, Co-Founder and CEO of Caliber. “This property is one of the finest in the Caliber hospitality portfolio and we are excited complete renovations that will ultimately lead to becoming a highly sought after hotel destination in the Tucson business district.”
