I've stayed here a couple of times for work and it is a fantastic place if you are in Scottsdale. The hotel itself was built in 1957 and retains all the original charm about it. The architecture and furnishings are all retro to the 50's and 60's and staying here is like going back in time, in a good way. It is easy to imagine Frank Sinatra, Lucile Ball, Cary Grant, or any number of stars from that area hanging out by the pool or the bar.
The grounds themselves are amazing and the hotel consists of a tower with several two story buildings spread out around it. The rooms are spacious, have balconies that overlook the pool or grounds and are quite comfortable. And everywhere are fruit trees with oranges, lemons or limes growing while the air is fragrant with any number of flowering plants. The place is like a resort more than a hotel.
The pool is great with a bar and cabanas that can be rented or just sit out in the deck chairs that surround it, there is a spa in the hotel, the bar has an outdoor area with fire pits for the evenings, and there is a work out room that is much better than your average hotel.
Within about 1-3 blocks walk of the hotel are several good restaurants (not chains) so you don't have to get in the car to go somewhere if you don't want to eat at the hotel.
This place is not for somebody staying on a budget but the staff is very friendly and they will take care of you well during your stay.
