We found this buried treasure, a time capsule rich in early mid-century history. We couldn’t just kick sand on it, and unsee it, so we gave it new life! Described by Sunset Magazine as “resurrected as one of the coolest boutique hotels that Arizona has to offer”, the Egyptian was brought back to life to inspire the creative types, the foodies, and the music lovers who like to connect and surround themselves in originality. Downtown Phoenix’s latest play station and overnight hub features 47 retro modern rooms, (and an airstream), Chilte, the highly lauded food pop-up turned must-try restaurant, and Egyptian Live, a 250 seat outdoor cocktail bar where folks can imbibe on inventive cocktails, savor the tastes of Chilte-to-go, and enjoy live entertainment. Did we mention there will be games? It’ll be a Gas.
We’ve done a whole lot more than replace the 1950’s spring mattresses and coin operated vibrating beds. We’ve created modern crash pads with a nod to their past! Rooms include Free WIFI + Marshall Bluetooth Speakers + microwave + Dinette Table and fridge + rain shower heads + mini patio, and more.
Featured in Bon Appétit as “one of the most anticipated restaurant openings of 2023”, Chilte brings an elevated food truck culture to the Egyptian! Chilte combines their independent spirit and wildly imagined ingredients to bring your food experience to a whole new level. Check it out at https://www.egyptianmotorhotel.com/.
