Hotel Valley Ho: Scottsdale, Arizona

 Hotel Valley Ho has been an inviting haven from the heat in the Valley of the Sun since 1956, becoming the home away from home for Hollywood's elite while visiting this desert paradise. Catering to the "Rat Pack" during their heyday, this Scottsdale resort had it all going on and continues to exude an urban chicness that's wrapped up in it's original desert architecture.  Having gone through an extensive restoration in 2005, the old and the new come together to make it "one of the hottest spots to stay..." (Chicago Tribune).  

The guestrooms have all been redone in a contemporary version of the mid-century "hip-ness" it was known for.  Amenities abound with flat screen high definition TVs, wifi, fabulous spa bath and shower products and feather topped beds.

The restaurant has changed little from it's early days; think really nice rec room from the 60's. Nationally recognized chef, Charles Wiley, brings you right into present however, with creative cuisine both at Cafe Zuzu and the legendary Trader Vic's. 

The location could not be more convenient as old Scottsdale, with it's restaurants, art galleries and gift shops is within walking distance.  More great shopping and dining is only minutes away by car in Paradise Valley.

Really nice to spend a few days there out of the routine.
