Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Delights in Arizona

Whether you are attending a convention in downtown Phoenix or visiting Arizona on holiday, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown is a delightful hotel. Mine was a quick overnight stay at the downtown Phoenix, Arizona hotel. I was in Phoenix to attend the America Outdoors conference on a sunny December day. Truth be told, I could have used a few more days in downtown Phoenix to soak up the sunshine by the terrace pool.

Rising 31 stories high, the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown hotel is on the corner of 3rd street in downtown Phoenix. The beige hotel is the tallest hotel in Phoenix. The Sheraton letters are spelled out on the top of the hotel. Several palm trees flank the 4 star hotel.

Located in downtown Phoenix, the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown is the largest hotel in the capital city. While there are other Sheraton hotels near Phoenix, the downtown Phoenix hotel is literally steps from the convention center. It should also be noted that it’s only a 10 minute drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX.)

Remodeled in 2021, the 31-floor property boasts 1,003 guest rooms and suites. The 4-star Marriott Bonvoy hotel is near Chase Field, Arizona Science Center and the Orpheum Theatre.

A man and woman sit across from each other at the opposite end of the community table. A male hotel guest sits in one of three beige leather chairs across from an l-shaped sofa. Two small, round circular tables are in front of the chair and sofa.

The huge, open hotel lobby has several stories of glass windows with natural light streaming into the lounge area. A lobby bar offers craft cocktails and a large community table is yet another place for hotel guests to gather. Additionally, there is a “More by Sheraton” coffee shop and grab-and-go market. Marriott Bonvoy Elite members will enjoy the Sheraton Club Lounge on the first floor of the downtown Phoenix hotel.

The buffet holds empty wine glasses, 2 wooden bowls of crackers and 2 glass jars of M&M chocolate candies in addition to a glass jar of peanuts.

Phoenix Downtown Drinks and Dining

While I didn’t have a chance to dine at Carara or Breeze Bar & Grill, I did make it to the Sheraton Club Lounge. My room included access to the Club Lounge for Marriott Bonvoy Elite members. In addition to a complimentary breakfast buffet, light snacks and drinks are available. I confess that I took a large scoop of M&M chocolate candies back to my hotel room.

Sheraton Phoenix Rooms & Suites 

There are both city and mountain views at this Sheraton Phoenix hotel. My room, #2945 was a club king suite on the 29th floor. I appreciated that it was required to scan your hotel room key in the elevator before you selected your floor. As a solo female traveler, this extra layer of security makes me feel more comfortable. 

My mountain view room looked out to downtown Phoenix. Rooms feature light wood tones, accentuated with black metal accents. All rooms include mini fridge and down pillows. My room included a half bath immediately upon entrance, as well as a bathroom with walk-in shower off my separate king bedroom. 

While it was a short stay, I made use of the Boca Terry spa robe and Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities. If I were traveling with my family, the Sheraton sweet sleeper bed in the pull-out sofa would have been a plus. Suites book out fast in this hotel, so plan accordingly.

Room rates start at $209 and up. Compare rates at Expedia or Hotels.com. There is a daily destination fee of $25 that includes complimentary wine or cider, 2 tickets to Arizona Science Center or Heard Museum, a 2 hour bike rental and daily access to 1 hour large studio or 90 minute access to a small studio for business meetings,

As noted above, I wish I’d had time to take advantage of the terrace swimming pool on the fourth floor of the hotel. The hotel is pet-friendly with a fee of $75. Valet and self-parking are available for additional fees.
