TUCSON, AZ – December 14, 2023 – There was tremendous cause for celebration as a group of 50+ came together to admire and commemorate the opening of Tucson’s first My Place Hotel last week. Attendees included individuals from My Place Corporate, Opwest Partners (ownership), CooperWynn Capital (ownership), Guard Hospitality (hotel management), Legacy Builders, the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce, Visit Tucson and more.
While the Arizona weather outside was beautiful, the action heated up inside as guests excitedly toured the 86-room Generation 2 style property. Their My Place Passports were stamped at the grab-and-go My Store, the onsite laundry facility, and four different guest room types, all equipped with a full-sized kitchen and plush, pillow-top beds. As they completed their journey, attendants deposited their passports for a chance at free night stays, My Place-exclusive merchandise, and more!
Once it was time to cut the ribbon, enthusiastic remarks were given by the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce, Visit Tucson, My Place Hotels Corporate, and Opwest Partners. The common threads amongst all speakers were excitement, gratitude and anticipation. Everyone agreed this My Place property fills a large gap within The Landing, a 65-acre mixed-use development project that currently houses no other hotels. The new My Place is also adjacent to the Tucson Spectrum outdoor mall and close to Tucson Airport and Downtown Tucson.
"This part of town is a little more under-resourced in terms of hotel rooms, so what's really cool about this spot is that it has proximity to Downtown Tucson, the Kino sports facilities, and it also meets a need where there's just less hotel rooms."-Zach Yentzer, Vice President of Business Advocacy with the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce
As Ryan Rivett, President/CEO of My Place Hotels, and Tyler Kent, President at Opwest Partners, spoke to the group, the mutual admiration was clear surrounding the partnership between the entities, alongside CooperWynn Capital, that helped bring this project from a vision to a reality.
