Tru by Hilton Scottsdale Salt River officially opened on February 13. The new hotel is located at 8401 N. Pima Center Pkwy in Scottsdale, right next to the White Castle burger restaurant. The four-story hotel is meant for business or family stays.
The grand opening gave guests a full tour of the hotel rooms, swimming pool and workout facility. The family hotel rooms are equipped with a microwave, fridge and dishwasher.
During the opening, a dessert station, sandwich station and fruit table were set up for guests while a guitarist serenaded their visit.
Community Development Director Stacey Gubser spoke on behalf of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Council.
“On behalf of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Council, I want to say congratulations on this momentous day. We are really happy to have you here in the Community. I’d like to take a few moments to thank several folks,” said Gubser. “First, I would like to thank the landowners. For those of you who aren’t familiar with our Community, we have landowners that own this property. There are around 30 to 35 Community members that own this property. If it weren’t for their vision and willingness to try to lease their property out, we wouldn’t be here today. This location is amazing; it’s beautiful. We’re grateful for our new guests to be joining us here in the Talking Stick Entertainment District. Come learn and experience the history and hospitality that this Community has shown for decades.”
The hotel is located in the Talking Stick Entertainment District, with the newly renamed Arizona Boardwalk, Medieval Times, Salt River Fields and USS Arizona Memorial Gardens located within minutes of the hotel.
