It’s the end of an era as the Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix hotel closes its doors tomorrow, shuttering the regal property at 24th Street and Camelback Road. And to usher out the grand dame, a landmark since 1988.

We worked extensively with the Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix to develop some highly successful regional marketing materials that were previously unheard of in the Marriott International owned luxury hotel chain. From in-room incentives and local market promotions for the in-house Bistro-24 bar and restaurant to an upscale event planning kit and a two long running quarterly print publications, Porchlight MCG+ was a proud partner of the Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix. We’re sad to see the grand dame close, but are happy to have been a part of her life and of the work that we did.

The 281-room hotel will undergo an extensive renovation and reopen in December as the Camby Hotel, managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts as part of Marriott Autograph Collection and for those fretting about not having a Ritz-Carlton in the valley, word on the street is that they will be opening a brand new hotel in Paradise Valley, so keep an eye out for that!
