JW Marriott Camelback Inn revealed plans to build an on-site conference center, scheduled to debut in June 2018. The space will include the new 15,000-square-foot Paradise Ballroom, along with an additional 20,000-square-feet of outdoor and pre-function spaces, in a significant expansion.
Once the addition is competed, Camelback Inn will feature 95,000 square feet of event space.
Camelback Inn will begin construction for the new conference structure and the Paradise Ballroom this spring and, upon completion of the new facility, will feature more than 35,000-square-feet of flexible indoor meeting space. A notable feature will be the building’s floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides, which will radiate natural light and provide guests with breathtaking views of Mummy Mountain.
Just outside, the venue’s Sonoran, Paradise, and Outdoor Terraces will overlook Camelback Inn’s lush gardens, and provide a stunning setting for both small- and large-scale functions. The ballroom will be customizable, with adjustable walls that create up to eight separate meeting spaces.
The smallest conference salon will be 818-square-feet and accommodate up to 80 guests, while the largest at 4,280-square-feet will accommodate up to 480 guests. With all of the walls removed, the full Paradise Ballroom will expand to 15,000-square-feet, and be able to host more than 1,500 guests.
The Paradise Ballroom will be surrounded by the South and West Pre-Function spaces and three outdoor terraces, including the newly enlarged 16,500-square-foot Sonoran Terrace with views of Camelback Inn’s North Garden. Camelback Inn’s planning and catering services complete the resort’s events services, ensuring that all events—large or small—are executed seamlessly.
“The addition of the Paradise Ballroom to our extensive repertoire of meetings and events offerings will allow us to accommodate even more special occasions, weddings, meetings and conferences,” said Jim Rose, general manager of Camelback Inn. “Camelback Inn prides itself in being a market leader in the meetings and events space, and we are excited to provide a product that helps meet the high demand.”
As Camelback Inn creates this new meeting and events experience, the resort’s existing conference centers, including the Arizona Ballroom will be fully functional, along with its private event spaces.
From June 2017 through May 2018, Camelback Inn will offer groups who book new events or meetings at the resort a $50 resort credit per attendee. Additionally, in anticipation of the debut of the Paradise Ballroom, Camelback Inn also will feature a special offer for groups booking events in 2019, 2020 and 2021. This offer will be for those booking more than 200 rooms, and will include free Wi-Fi and more.
