we'rerefreshing and practical — a rare choice in senior living

At Park Terrace, our pedigree as a destination hotel lingers in the air. Grandkids splashing in the pools. A pianist playing in the lobby. True to our roots as an Embassy Suites, you’ll find an experienced chef in our restaurant and a cocktail waiting for you at our Happy Hour receptions. All the while, our experienced staff takes care of the chores.

Of course, this is more than vacation living — it’s your home. With a comfortable apartment furnished just the way you like and friendly neighbors next door, life goes on as you please. Once you’re settled in, you’ll see there’s a real sense of community that just feels like home. Friends linger over a great meal. Neighbors walk dogs, play cards and catch a baseball game.

While we’re beaming with pride about our refreshing take on senior living in Phoenix, we think you’ll find our practical side especially appealing in retirement. To simplify things, we’ve streamlined your costs into one fee. Like being on a cruise, everything is included — meals, entertainment and utilities in an affordable month-to-month rent. To help you live independently on your own terms, we’ve added personalized care and assistance should you ever need it.
