The Scottsdale, Ariz. resort will add 35,000 sq. ft. of meetings and events space in 2018, including the new 15,000-sq. ft. Paradise Ballroom. The project will expand the property’s total space in event facilities to 95,000 sq. ft.
JW Marriott Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Ariz. has announced plans to build a state-of-the-art conference center, scheduled to debut in June 2018. The space will include the new 15,000-sq. ft. Paradise Ballroom, along with an additional 20,000 sq. ft. of outdoor and pre-function spaces, which will expand the resort’s total space in event facilities to 95,000 sq. ft.
The resort will begin construction for the new conference structure and the Paradise Ballroom this spring and, upon completion of the new facility, will feature more than 35,000 sq. ft, of flexible indoor meeting space.
A notable feature will be the building’s floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides, which will radiate natural light and provide guests with views of Mummy Mountain. Just outside, the venue’s Sonoran, Paradise, and Outdoor Terraces will overlook Camelback Inn’s lush gardens, to provide an attractive setting for both small- and large-scale functions.
The ballroom will be customizable, with adjustable walls that create up to eight separate meeting spaces. The smallest conference salon will be 818 sq. ft. and accommodate up to 80 guests, while the largest, at 4,280 sq. ft., will accommodate up to 480 guests.
With all of the walls removed, the full Paradise Ballroom will expand to 15,000 sq. ft., with the ability to accommodate large groups of more than 1,500 guests.
The Paradise Ballroom will be surrounded by the South and West Pre-Function spaces and three outdoor terraces, including the newly enlarged, 16,500-sq.-ft. Sonoran Terrace with views of Camelback Inn’s North Garden.
“The addition of the Paradise Ballroom to our extensive repertoire of meetings and events offerings will allow us to accommodate even more special occasions, weddings, meetings and conferences,” said General Manager Jim Rose. “Camelback Inn prides itself in being a market leader in the meetings and events space, and we are excited to provide a product that helps to meet the high demand in the industry.”
As Camelback Inn creates this new meeting and events experience, the resort’s existing conference centers, including the Arizona Ballroom, will be fully functional, along with private event spaces at Lincoln Restaurant and Camelback Golf Club.
From June 2017 through May 2018, Camelback Inn will offer groups who book new events or meetings at the resort a $50 resort credit per attendee. Additionally, in anticipation of the debut of the Paradise Ballroom, Camelback Inn also will feature a special offer for groups booking events in 2019, 2020 and 2021. This offer will be for those booking more than 200 rooms, and will include complimentary Wi-Fi and an additional 50,000 awards points.
Set on 125 acres of Sonoran Desert landscape in Paradise Valley, the Camelback Inn features 453 guest rooms and suites, each with a private entrance and garden patio or balcony. The resort also offers 36 holes of championship golf, six tennis courts, the 32,000-sq. ft. Spa at Camelback Inn, two swimming pools, and seven restaurants and lounges.
