The BR&P designed Residence Inn by Marriott in Chandler, AZ is ready for guests! Designed in a “Santa Barbara” style, the 142-room hotel blends traditional elements with a contemporary flair. The exterior design features white stucco wall finishes, red concrete roof tiles, screen walls, heavy cornices and ceramic tile accents. Inside, the hotel features a light and open lobby with modern furnishings and décor that fit in well with the overall Ocotillo ambiance.
Located on four acres, the hotel is adjacent to one of the area’s lakes. Much of the design was featured around these waterfront views. The lobby and entry layout were modified from the standard prototype to relocate the main seating and breakfast area to the back of the building, taking advantage of the lake view. This was further enhanced by a 50 foot wide sliding glass wall that allows the lobby to completely open up to the patio and pool area.
Other hotel features include an outside swimming pool and sun deck, fire pit, lobby, breakfast, electric car charging stations, a business center and boardroom. The hotel also has more than 800 sq. ft. of event space. Outside, there are multiple walking trails and small patio seating areas along the lake edge. There are also two fire pits and a fountain for guests to enjoy. In addition, the fitness and meeting room areas are located to take advantage of the lake view.
“The setting is just spectacular,” Shakiera Helenic, director of sales for Aimbridge Hospitality, which manages the hotel, says. “The entire property is custom-designed and upgraded. As you walk thru you can feel and see the attention to detail. It’s very well done.”
