est Western® Hotels & Resorts (BWHR) today announces the groundbreaking of its urban, upscale boutique brand, Vīb, in Tempe, Arizona. Vīb currently boasts 16 properties in the global pipeline, and Vīb Tempe will be joining locations in Springfield, Missouri; Bangkok, Thailand and Antalya, Turkey.

Located at 511 South Farmer Avenue, the 102-room Vīb Tempe will serve as BWHR's corporate hotel, giving the global hospitality company a bigger footprint in its home state of Arizona. BWHR has been located in Arizona since 1966 with its Phoenix-based corporate office serving as the global headquarters for the organization. The development of Vīb Tempe is the latest example of the company's commitment to enriching the state of Arizona with economic opportunities from employment to development.

Vīb Tempe will offer city travelers and Tempe residents a stylish boutique experience. The upscale hotel will feature a modern lobby thoughtfully designed for collaborating with peers, using as a workspace for the day, or socializing after a local sporting event. The versatile public space can also flex to provide an extended lobby with flexible furnishings suitable for large events and functions. This innovative lobby design is intended to serve every guest need and provide both reasons to stay in and options for going out. The lobby bar provides the perfect hangout spot to indulge in crafted cocktails, light dining and espresso beverages. The hotel also includes a signature rooftop lounge offering guests a breathtaking view of downtown Tempe.

Home to Arizona State University, Tempe is the ideal location for this urban boutique hotel, providing guests with access to the best outdoor activities Arizona has to offer and some of the greatest dining and entertainment options in the state.

Every Vīb hotel is a tribute to customization, highlighting local offerings such as celebrated local attractions, activities and dining options through custom-crafted media walls that engage and inform the traveler. Tempe Vīb will also include a unique art installation on the adjacent walking path to bridge the community to the hotel.

Anticipated to open in September 2021, Vīb Tempe will offer additional amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center with interactive workouts, outdoor pool, and a multifunctional meeting space. Local, thoughtfully-sourced fresh food and beverage options will make this hotel a social destination for guests and locals alike.
