Boutique Hotel Brings Downtown Vibe and Economic Value

by Mike Hunter

Downtown Scottsdale gained a new boutique hotel when Hotel Adeline opened late last month, following a $12-million renovation of the site. Developed by Los Angeles-based ESI Ventures and managed by New Orleans-based HRI Lodging, the eclectic boutique property on Scottsdale Road a mile north of Camelback Road will offer 213 guestrooms, including five spacious 700-square-foot king suites; a full-service Mediterranean-American restaurant and lounge; a fast-casual breakfast and lunch café with a late-night grab n’ go bar; a state-of-the-art fitness center; a lively pool scene and pool bar; buzzing common areas; and nearly 10,000 square feet of private event space.

“Hotel Adeline is ESI Ventures’ first hotel in the Arizona market, so a great deal of research and thought went into selecting the right property,” says Shaun Baker, general manager of Hotel Adeline. “We were initially drawn to the project’s prime location and close proximity to Scottsdale attractions. We also saw an opportunity to bring more of a downtown vibe to Old Town Scottsdale, and Hotel Adeline is the perfect property to bring our vision to life.”

According to the City of Scottsdale Economic Development Department’s economic impact report, Hotel Adeline is projected to employ more than 129 people and increase local tax revenues by more than $1 million by the end of 2018. The report projects the total value of the project’s economic impact to be $31 million after one year and $83 million after five years.
