The 242-room Westin Phoenix Downtown will open in February 2011. The property -- the first Westin-branded hotel in the city -- will occupy nine floors of a new 26-story building, the Freeport McMoRan Center; it will have 9,000 square feet of meeting space and a fitness center. The building is one block from the Phoenix Convention Center.
