Married on the Outdoor Patio of the Presidential Suite at the Paradise Valley Doubletree Resort in June of 2009. My fiance and I came up with the fantastic idea to marry in a Presidential Suite somewhere in Phoenix, that would allow us to hold an elegant, small ceremony, and then kick everyone out and turn it into a wonderful and upgraded two-night honeymoon. After an extensive search across the entire Phoenix area, we found the Presidential Suite at this resort to be FAR AND AWAY the best top-end suite in all of Phoenix for this type of arrangement. We did extensive touring of these suites for at least two months, and nothing even came close. We saw the high end suites at the Biltmore, the new Sheraton, the other Scottsdale Resorts - nothing had anything close, eventhough many of the sites were newer and more expensive. Why? The Doubletree Presidential Suite essentially has four parts, whereas the other hotels only have two or maybe three. The four parts are a master bedroom, a large living/dining room, an outdoor patio that holds about fifty people, and a private swimming pool/hot tub/sauna. Even the most lux suite at the Biltmore lacked the private pool and hot tub, and only had a small patio. Get the picture? We were able to hold a reception in the living/dining area after a sunset wedding on the patio, then kept the place to ourselves for three days - a huge and elegant suite with a private swimming pool. Goodness - can I go back? :) The price also couldn't be beat. Think about it - when you combine the wedding chapel, the reception hall, and the wedding night hotel room into one, you can go all out! No way could we have afforded the Presidential Suite for a stand-alone honeymoon, but when it was the site of everything else, it was an absolute steal! Our guests were absolutely stunned by this simple, yet fantastic idea. You should have seen their mouths drop when they saw the private pool and the gorgeous suite. If you are having a ceremony with less than 50 people, I can't imagine a better location in the entire Phoenix area. I will write more specifics on my next post, but I just wanted to share this wonderful and unique idea that we pulled off to the rave reviews of all our guests, and want to give kudos to the PV Doubletree Resort for the service and hospitality. Awesome experience!
