The Global Ambassador on Track for Opening Late 2023

Among Arizona’s most highly anticipated openings slated for the new year is The Global Ambassador, a luxe hotel from iconic hospitality innovator Sam Fox. The new hotel is ahead of its construction schedule and plans to open in late 2023. 

The can’t-miss construction activity has been buzzing on Camelback Road, with much excitement and anticipation growing for the new destination’s build to be finished. Its latest progress (completed in early October) allowed the five-story hotel to be sealed into place with a steel rooftop structure overhead. Now that the bones of the building are in place, builders can focus on creating exterior finishes, like brickwork, windows and doors. 

“This is the moment where the soul of The Global Ambassador begins to take shape and the community will see firsthand how detailed, curated and special this place will soon become,” says Brian Frakes, Fox’s co-developer of the hotel and president of Common Bond Development Group, in a press release.

As the building’s exterior progresses, the construction team hopes to begin placing its luxury interior finishes this coming December. The details include custom millwork, handmade tiles, ornate wall coverings and more under Testani Design Troupe, the hotel’s stellar interior design team.

In addition to the construction development, Fox has also announced he is developing a lineup of five innovative dining destinations for The Global Ambassador, each featuring its own unique offerings. Guests can anticipate enjoying plates with globally-inspired flavors from France to Mexico. Each destination will offer a personalized experience, whether you just got out of the pool with the little ones or are looking to celebrate a special anniversary under the stars.
