Why We Love It

  • This brand-new resort was built from the ground up in the same place where the original 1959 Mountain Shadows Resort once stood
  • Lounge at two pools, get in a workout, hide from the sun in a cabana and refuel with a green juice at the Citizens Club 
  • Hike Camelback Mountain, located next to the resort 
  • Spacious guest rooms feature modern furnishings and many feature floor-to-ceiling windows and either a balcony or patio

Rooms & Rates

This newly built and just opened resort of the same name stands in the same location as the prior Mountain Shadows resort, an iconic abode for celebrities, including the Rat Pack, during its heyday in the 1960s. This new resort incorporates that history with a new sleek design.

Guest rooms feature a fresh contemporary design with modern furnishings in a spacious layout. Many rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the mountains or golf course. Premium guest rooms also offer private patios or balconies. All rooms come with a comfy robe and slippers, a bar cart with recipes to make your own cocktails, plush bedding and a built-in work space. 

The resort's restaurant and bar, Hearth '61, offers a sleek modern space with an exhibition kitchen with a menu that shows off fresh local ingredients in the form of small plates, entrees and craft cocktails as well as local beer and wine. And as the name suggestions, a stone oven is used to cook the meats and the roast of the day (think miso-glazed game hen or Niman Ranch pork loin). A sleek lounge, the Living Room, serves up cocktails in the evenings.

While there is no spa on site, guests have access to the spa at the sister resort, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. The resort's courtesy car (a Tesla) will take you there (it's just down the road) for a day of relaxation. Spend the day on the Short Course, the resort's par-3, 18-hole golf course with views of Camelback and Mummy Mountains. Then take a break at Rusty's lounge or patio for lunch or cocktail after a long day on the course. 

The Citizens Club encompasses two 75-foot pools with a spacious deck with chaise lounge chairs, private cabanas and a juice bar with fresh, healthy concoctions as well as cocktails and food. A fitness center features cardio equipment, free weights and other machines as well as fitness classes (for a $20 fee) including yoga, aerial yoga, spin and more.

When they say they will upgrade a room they mean it. I purchased a premium room and recieved a pool side cabana room. If I didn't have to go back to work I would of stayed much longer. The workout facilities and steam sauna, the pool side and the staff all well worth the price.

Food was overly salty, like places in New Orleans. However, overall the hotel is super wonderful except for the mosquitos/bugs which the staff addressed attentively, and so I would recommend this hotel and stay there again if I am in Scottsdale.
