Old Town Scottsdale will get its first new hotel in a decade, plus five more.
City planners in metro Phoenix’s tourist hotspot say nine new hotels are in various stages of planning, including one in north Scottsdale, six in Old Town and two farther south.
The last hotel to open in Old Town was the W Hotel in 2008.
The development burst comes after a marked period of slow hotel growth during the recession, according to Randy Grant, Scottsdale’s director of planning and development services.
