“Today in Tomorrowland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Just want to start out by saying that I VERY rarely would give any business all the stars because that would mean there is no room for improvement. There is always room for improvement.
This hotel is Space-Age hip. We expected to see the Jetsons maid jump out and do our room up. Great restoration of an established mid-century landmark. Room decor in tasteful modern vibe.The bed super comfortable. Very nice bar items for use in room. (Martini and wine glasses,etc). The bath products delicious. I REALLY appreciated the blue mood light available in the bathroom. How often do we stumble into the hotel lavatory in the middle of the night and have to turn on the most glaring bright light lest we stub our toe in the dark? Not the case here.
We had breakfast in the Zuzu that was sublime. Loved the Bloody Mary bar, oh yes on New Year's Day!
The only negatives for us were the building that we were in was quite a distance from the lobby area. We figured out after a day that it was better to self park where we could be closer to our room. In addition, the party goers in the next room sounded like they were in our bathroom. It was New Years Eve so that is to be expected.
Overall it was a very cool experience, not the ordinary vanilla hotel. We will be back.

Thank you for your review! While we are much smaller than many resort properties in the Valley (the hotel is on seven acres), the rooms in The Tower are perfect if you prefer to be right near the lobby and ZuZu. I'm sorry about the noise in the room next to yours. We do have a strict no-party policy for our rooms and our security team enforces that to ensure everyone can get a good night's sleep. New Year's Eve definitely tends to be livelier than other nights in the year. We look forward to seeing you again!

This is my favorite hotel in midtown Scottsdale. Super cool place to stay. They've truly captured the midcentury theme and added a hipster twist. Great F&B and the staff is superb. They provide 4.5 diamond service at a four diamond hotel. It's a fun place to go and relax as well as it's not so over the top that you can't conduct business there.

The pool area is the best although don't expect the lux cabana experience that you get at some of the Scottsdale haunts. This is more about having fun and feeling cool while doing it. Note - on the weekends they have packed out pool parties. We enjoyed but make sure it's your thing before you stay then. It's a party. Midweek you will pretty much have the place to yourself.

Spa is a favorite. The steam room was the best for combatting the dryness of the Valley. They have custom-scented products that are used in the spa and throughout the hotel that I would like to have a mainline of. The most refreshing scent. Everytime I use the lotion it takes me back!

Nice rooms - electic yet well-appointed. Super comfy beds and quiet hallways make for a wonderful night's rest!

Room Tip: You can either opt for the pool view or the sunset view over the mountains depending on your prefere...

We knew little about this hotel on arrival for one night but quickly fell in love with its campy mid-century modernist decor and ambiance and wound up staying two more nights. Our room (4107) was double-sized, with a small patio and a blooming orange tree (in December) and hot tubs nearby. Very comfortable, great service and terrifically relaxing. We had both a frig and microwave in our room as well as robes. Mood blue bath tub lighting was funny. We had a pleasant light supper at ZuZu, their restaurant. Although rates overall are fair, one big irritant was the extra charges for things most hotels today provide for free: WIFI, coffee and parking. That's a part of their mid-century look-back they should abandon. Still, we will surely go back. It's in Old Town Scottsdale near the art scene and close to restaurants, shops and the town's "waterfront."

Room Tip: Our room was in the outer wing not the tower where some more expensive rooms are two-story suites; w...

We stayed here with two small kids, and this place was great. Good food, great accommodations, kid friendly, great great great service. Early check in and late check out was no problem.
Also, the best part is their bath products. Their signature scent is amazing, and feel great on your skin.
We had a double bed room in the wings, next time we will spring for the suite.

Most agree that "the locals" know the best places to go. Well as a local, I'm glad to say the Valley Ho is my favorite new place to stay in Scottsdale. Our agency chose the hotel to host our holiday getaway.

Thanks to top-notch service, ever-fab amenities and above all, wonderful hospitality, many of us extended our stay to four additional days beyond the original booking.

Now that's swell.

I love this hotel....very Rat Pack Palm Springs feel. Built in 1956 and host to many Hollywood celebs, the hotel has been fantastically renovated with a swanky 1950s vibe. Beautiful grounds with orange trees and fountains, friendly and attentive service, cool bar and pool and an awesome spa and fitness center. In the heart old town Scottsdale, many dining and entertainment options are walkable. I stay here when on business in Phoenix, but would recommend it to anyone looking for something other than cookie cutter mass market box hotels for business or pleasure

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a great view so if you don't care to look at the parking lot, ask in advance...

I went there with my Husband for his work holiday party (ClubMed). This charming renovated hotel is tucked away in old town Scottsdale off main street. As I was getting out of the car, the valet took my hand to help me and bowed. They ased our names, reason for visit, and escourted us through the beautifully clean modern retro decorated plaa and a very busy elegant bar area evevated and in a semi-circle. The architecture was clean, simple, open, each room integrated and complemented the other, a beauty. So we were escourted on the elevator to the roof where the party was held. Wow...... Everwhere you looked all you could see views of the entire city. The staff immediately started walking around with decant orderves, civichi, broche, various cheeses, breads, pot pie on small spoons, tea sandwishes, etc. Everything delectable. Staff overly attentive and pleasent. It was a romantic and magical evening I will never forget.

Room Tip: We went for a work holiday party, we did not stay in a room so I do not know.

I'm glad you had such a wonderful time at the hotel! You may want to visit us for New Year's Eve - we're hosting a four-course dinner in ZuZu, dancing, and a Champagne toast on the rooftop at midnight. Thank you for your comments.
