PHOENIX - The owners of the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa plan to spend $300 million renovating and expanding the historic Phoenix resort.

The project would add a modern spa, 300 guest rooms and a fine-dining restaurant. The plans also call for a redesigned entrance and renovations to the Biltmore Grill and rooms in the hotel's Arizona wing.

The Biltmore helped launch the region as a tourist destination when it opened in 1929. It was controlled for more than 40 years by the family of chewing gum magnate William Wrigley but has had a series of owners in recent years. It is currently controlled by Boston-based Pyramid Advisors and is part of the Waldorf-Astoria upscale hotel chain.

Pyramid is asking the city of Phoenix to approve the plan.
