On a business trip with hubby to Scottsdale I had some time to enjoy the hotel by myself. Like a lot of Western (American) cities, being without a car can leave you trapped. Not so much at the Valley Ho, the location is in walking distance to old town Scottsdale. As long as the weather is good... and late October is fabulous in the desert it was a great walking destination. The rooftop lounge area was a great location for a company retreat. Stunning views of the valley city below, open and yet intimate space, and excellent service.
The hotel is oh so retro and quite well done, having gone through a renovation in 2005, it is posh and polished and somewhat authentically mid-century modern. The hotel hosted the wedding of Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood in the 50's. It had a very adult vibe. Definitely a fun hotel for couples, groups, pets. The weekend we stayed there was a wedding in the round outside of our room.. that same afternoon a "hen party" was happening at the pool. The crowd was young, some in age, some in spirit. It seemed everyone was there to have an uninhibited good time.
