The old Grace Inn is going through a big remodel to reopen as a Four Points by Sheraton in July of 2014.

The property was purchased by Jaffer Hospitality in August. The company did not wish to release financials, but the renovation is estimated to cost millions.

The new hotel, called Four Points Phoenix South, will have 160 guest rooms and suites and 6,307 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space. Four Points will also have free Wi-Fi, complimentary bottled water and coffee, and the Best Brews local craft beer program.

All the rooms will go through a complete transformation with new lighting, bedding and electrical writing. The lobby will be opened up and given modern touches.

“Four Points is one of Starwood’s growth leaders and is experiencing a surge in demand in cities across North America, to offer travelers a fresh, new option within close proximity of the airport and top attractions,” said Shara Seigel, spokesperson for Four Points. “The brand’s promise of ‘great hotels at great rates’ has proven to be a hit with travelers, prompting owners and developers to choose Four Points when repositioning an existing property.”

The property will be Starwood’s second Four Points in Arizona.

The Grace Inn was built 26 years ago. It was originally developed as a Best Western before becoming an independent property. Howard Grace, president of W.M. Grace Companies, said the space was in need of major renovations and to be re-flagged with a new franchise system so Grace decided to let another company take a run at that.
