The Arizona Cardinals’ new hotel for training camp was damaged by the Valley’s latest monsoon storms on Monday evening, the team confirmed to Arizona Sports Tyler Drake on Tuesday.

A team spokesperson said four rooms occupied by the team had water damage, which is all attributed to staff and not players.

The Cardinals are staying at the Wigwam in Litchfield Park, a change from Arizona’s previous stays at the Renaissance Hotel, which was across from State Farm Stadium. ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss reported that the change was due to a dispute between the hotel and the NFL over hotel prices during the week of the upcoming Super Bowl LVII.

Three different storms swept through the Phoenix area Monday evening and produced more than 2 inches of rain in some areas. A gauge just east of the Wigwam recorded 1.14 inches of rain in the past 24 hours. Sun City showed 1.54 inches, another in North Phoenix 1.69 and one in Cave Creek at 0.87.

Arizona started training camp on Tuesday.
