This month, the Fiesta Resort Conference Center in Tempe, Arizona, celebrates 35 years of providing warm Southwestern hospitality to business travelers, meeting planners and attendees, and those vacationing or holding special events at the resort.
The Fiesta Inn opened in 1975, retaining that name until several years ago when it was repositioned as the Fiesta Resort Conference Center to recognize the 30,000-square-foot multi-use facility that debuted in January 2008.
Kimble Cohn, a St. Louis-based architect, directed the original design of the property. Modern, linear lines - accented by the use of angular geometric design elements - are featured and used throughout the property in the copper fixtures, stained glass windows, and massive wooden doors. This creates an optimal, comfortable experience of interior and exterior spaces working in harmony with each other to create an enchanted ambiance.
“Our 35th anniversary is a big milestone for us, and we’re pleased to have been such an integral part of the Tempe and Greater Phoenix communities for so long,” said Henry Naber, general manager of the Fiesta Resort Conference Center. “Our resort is a special one, with architectural nuances that make it so unique, and we’re proud to have gone the extra mile to make our guests’ stays and events as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Our associates are looking forward to delivering the same exceptional service and hospitality for the next 35 years.”
Set amidst lush landscaping, koi ponds and patios, the Fiesta Resort Conference Center is a beloved Tempe landmark. The resort has served as the site of countless conventions, meetings, parties, weddings and other social events over the past three and a half decades – many of which were held under the supervision of Sherry Henry, who served as general manager for 24 years before assuming her current position as director of the Arizona Office of Tourism.
Managed by North Palm Beach, FL-based Driftwood Hospitality Management, LLC, whose current portfolio comprises 21 hotels in thirteen U.S. states, the Bahamas and Costa Rica, the resort is owned by Tucson development company Capri Inc.
