The Westin Phoenix Downtown opened earlier this year a block from the Phoenix Convention Center. The 242-room hotel occupies nine floors in the 26-story Freeport McMoRan Center, a mixed-use facility that includes retail shops and offices.

The meeting space, on floors 11 and 12, has floor-to-ceiling windows offering dramatic views of downtown Phoenix and the surrounding desert and mountains. The meeting and event space, totaling 15,244 square feet, includes the 3,000-square-foot Copper Ballroom. It seats 200 for a dinner or a meeting. The Lapis Pool Terrace is suitable for outdoor receptions and dinners.

The hotel is located across the street from a light-rail station, where guests can hop on a train to Sky Harbor International Airport.
