The Westin Phoenix Downtown is scheduled to open in March 2011, just one block from the Phoenix Convention Center.

The 242-room hotel will occupy nine floors in the 26-story Freeport McMoRan Center—a mixed-use facility that includes retail shops and offices. It is directly across the street from a light rail station, where guests can hop on a train to Sky Harbor International Airport. The Westin Phoenix Downtown will feature nearly 9,000 square feet of meeting space.
