ARRIVE Phoenix, a locally owned 79-room, $25-million-dollar boutique hotel that spans two restored, mid-century modern towers at 400 W. Camelback Road, has been renamed Rise Uptown. The owners will reveal the new name, new enhancements and an all-new penthouse lounge during an official grand opening on Sunday, June 6.

The hotel opened last year in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, paving the way towards new partnerships and opportunities to fully realize the property as originally planned. Vintage Partners and Venue Projects, the local owners of the hotel, have tapped Benchmark, a hospitality management company, to manage and operate on property. Benchmark also is behind local mid-century landmarks Hotel Valley Ho and Mountain Shadows.

The owners also have expanded the role of drinksmith and concept creator Ross Simon to conceptualize and carry out his version of a penthouse lounge, called Don Woods’ Say When, which offers 270-degree views inside and outside. It delivers classic and reimagined cocktails, paired with chef-curated bar bites from 4 p.m. to close. The lounge is named for a local real estate developer who once had an office inside the mid-century modern tower.
