The Metro Plaza Hotel in Northwest Phoenix has a new owner and is slated to reopen in December 2014.
It is being fully remodeled as a Radisson property and will be managed by San Diego-based R.A. Rauch & Associates.
“We have been watching the Phoenix hospitality market closely and see room to fill an important niche with this Radisson-branded property,” said Bob Moore, RAR senior vice president.
This will be RAR’s first property in the Phoenix market, but the market is not new to the firm’s president Bob Rauch. Rauch worked for years in Phoenix, received his master’s degree in tourism administration from Arizona State University and is currently a professor at ASU.
