In a town brimming with posh resorts and business-class hotels, Scottsdale's boutique hotels offer a unique, personal experience that will help make your stay in this upscale desert city more memorable.
At the top of our list is the Hotel Valley Ho. This chic, mid-century modern hotel is the city's most popular boutique hotel. Back in the day, celebrities like Bing Crosby, Tony Curtis, and Janet Leigh were known to drop into the hotel, and teen idols Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner even held their 1957 wedding reception in the hotel ballroom. Today, scenesters still crowd the pool area at Hotel Valley Ho, a midcentury gem that continues to be a hub for stylish travelers. You can't beat the location either, right on Main Street in Old Town Scottsdale.
The Scott, formerly Kimpton's Firesky Resort, brings a dash of tropical chic to central Scottsdale. The recently updated hotel boasts a unique Spanish Revival meets Bauhaus design, smoothly blended with the amenities of a traditional luxury resort.
For an affordable boutique hotel experience in Scottsdale, take respite at the 3 Palms, a contemporary stay in an appealing low-rise adobe structure. Step into the peaceful lobby featuring desert stone accents set in hand-laid white crystal granite and you'll probably feel the stress of travelling start to melt away. Rooms are on the smaller side, but comfortable and clean.
