A new Four Points by Sheraton hotel welcomes guests in North Phoenix.

With a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception, the former Crowne Plaza Phoenix North reopened at the Four Points Phoenix North in mid-October with a $2 million makeover.

The new hotel features 17,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, as well as an indoor and outdoor pool with hot tubs. Guests also have 248 renovated rooms to choose from for a brief or extended stay.

Four Points Phoenix North is the second hotel in the area to undergo a major renovation. The revitalization of the Radisson Phoenix North also took on a reported $8 million in upgrades and changes upon its opening in January 2015.

The 284-room Radisson opened just in time for the Super Bowl, which brought thousands of travelers and fans to the Phoenix-area. Renovations to the hotel included new carpets, bathrooms, a new lobby and a new fitness room.

For business travelers, the Radisson also offers more than 14,000 square feet of meeting space and new audio and video equipment.

The Radisson Hotel Phoenix North is one of three Radisson hotels in the Phoenix metro area. The others include one near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and one in Chandler.

The opening of the Four Points by Sheraton Phoenix North also brings the Four Points hotel count in the Valley to three. Guests can also reserve stays at Four Points by Sheraton at Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport and at Four Points by Sheraton Phoenix South Mountain.

The new hotels bring a much-welcome infusion of newness to the nearby Metrocenter Mall-area, which is also being eyed for transformation. Area residents hope the upgraded hotels will help revitalize the once-thriving neighborhood, which has struggled in recent decades with the growth of close-by neighborhoods and other super regional malls.
