My husband and I stayed just one night at the Arizona Biltmore, but we definitely want to come back for a longer stay. The hotel is just gorgeous - a living testament to Wright's design genius. The grounds are extensive, which makes you feel you are truly in a secluded, exclusive location. Our room was in the main building, and although not overly large, it was adequate and the finishings were superior. On a future visit, we might splurge to be in one of the cottages for a more residential experience.
We dined in Wright's, and had a lovely meal and excellent service - not stuffy, but polite and friendly. One of the things I liked most about the menu was that most dishes are offered in a small and large size. This allows you to have a grazing-style dining experience, which I like.
Don't kid yourself - this will be an expensive treat, from the room rates to drinking and dining. But you should rather expect that from a Waldorf Astoria Collection hotel. You will also, I believe, have a special experience. Allow yourself some time to stroll around the grounds and enjoy the flora, the mountain view, and beautiful water features. Sit for a while on the patio by a fire pit. If your lucky, as we were, a groundskeeper might give you a fresh grapefruit off one of the hotel's trees. Divine.
