Omni Hotels & Resorts has broken ground on Omni Tempe Hotel at ASU, a 330-room hotel, set to open in 2023, in the heart of downtown Tempe on the Arizona State University (ASU) campus. The hotel is a $125-million investment and part of a public-private partnership with ASU and the City of Tempe.
Omni will develop the hotel in collaboration with C+TC Design Studio, Inc. (architect), Brasfield & Gorrie (general contractor), and Monogram at BBGM (interior design). The hotel will have four dining outlets, a pool deck, retail, and almost 36,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space.
The hotel’s design elements will highlight Tempe’s local and cultural landscape, integrating ASU’s modern, industrial feel with Arizona’s rich desert hues. Contrasts of Arizona’s light and shadow will create texture and patterns that will mingle with the hotel’s accents of concrete, leather, metal, and natural materials. Other nods to the ASU campus will be found throughout the hotel, with abstract artwork of library books, artwork from local artists, and alumni and library-esque tables in the lobby bar area.
