CLEVELAND, OH -- The Lexington Collection of unique hotels, plaza hotels, and resorts worldwide is proud to announce that it has opened its first hotel in one of the nation’s top tourist destinations - Phoenix.


Conveniently located in the heart of Phoenix’s world-famous downtown business corridor, the three-diamond Lexington hotel offers a wide range of sought after services and amenities for leisure and business travelers alike. Guests can unwind after a day of convention-going, shopping, or sight-seeing at the pool and hot tub or enjoy a nice meal at the on-site restaurant. Not to be missed from the guest rooms are the breathtaking city views that light up the skyline in the evenings.

Guest rooms are equipped with the latest technologies such as free high-speed Internet access, cable satellite TV, and free long distance access. This central Phoenix hotel also offers a complimentary breakfast. For added comfort and convenience, the Lexington is equipped with a business center, fitness room, and meeting and banquet space.

The Lexington Hotel Phoenix is a short walk to the Phoenix Civic Plaza Convention Center and the sporting venues for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Phoenix Suns.

“Choosing to be a member of Vantage Hospitality’s Lexington Collection was a strategic decision for us,” said Sheila Overall, general manager of the hotel. “We are in one of the top tourist and convention areas of the world and want to be affiliated with a brand that would allow us to choose the amenities that would best suit our market niche; and Lexington’s Freestyle Affiliation Model gave us the freedom to do just that. On top of that, Lexington has all the comprehensive resources imaginable available to its members, thanks to Vantage being the 12th largest hotel company in the world.”

According to Roger Bloss, President & CEO of Vantage Hospitality, the parent company of Lexington, the hotel is a wonderful addition to the rapidly growing brand. “The community of Phoenix is thriving and we know that Sheila’s team will offer the best services, amenities, and hospitality to the guests who stay at their hotel.”

The Lexington Hotel – Phoenix is located at 1100 N. Central Avenue in downtown Phoenix.
