FOUND:RE Phoenix might make you wonder if you’re in a hotel or at a posh-but-approachable art gallery. Conveniently situated in the heart of the hip Central Arts District, the 8-story boutique hotel features 105 eclectic guest rooms and top-floor balcony suites. FOUND:RE Phoenix brings the art to you. A full-time cultural curator ensures that the hotel is teeming with local art and local artists at all times. All the art is for sale, so expect to be surprised each time you visit.
Even the room numbers are a work of art; each is hand made. Open the door and you’ll find that the industrial-yet-warm design provides the perfect backdrop to even more local art. On top of the eye-candy, the rooms are filled with high-end amenities like custom platform beds, flat-screen TVs, custom workspaces, plush bathrobes and slippers. The outdoor pool provides a perfect spot for soaking up the city’s abundant sun, while dining at the hotel’s MATCH Cuisine & Cocktails is an artistic experience in itself, inspired by global street food focused on fresh, local ingredients.
Inspiration awaits. Stay among art and artists, leave a little more cultured than you arrived.
Creative cocktails and globally-inspired dishes, many of which are wood-fired in the Forno Bravo wood oven, are served on MATCH Cuisine & Cocktails’ ever-changing menu that focuses on social plates. “Not the usual” is the chef’s motto, with every recipe telling a story. Lunch, dinner and drinks are also served on the pool deck, while the Light Rail Express menu offers business people who are on the go quicker options for both breakfast and lunch.
FOUND:RE Phoenix’s cultural curator offers guests the chance to meet the artists whose work is displayed at the hotel, or embark on a studio or work-space tour. There is a lounge with a 20-foot-long community table for working or holding meetings, an herb garden, and interactive art. Gallery and Studio spaces feature rotating art shows all year.
