When celebrities needed to escape the prying eyes of Hollywood in the 1950s, Scottsdale blossomed as a warm, welcoming, low-key retreat. One of the top spots was Hotel Valley Ho, a sleek midcentury hideaway styled in desert colors and constructed with materials inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s textile blocks.

It was the chicest scene when Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner wed there in 1957, and it glows again today after an $80 million restoration. Rooms have clean-lined furnishings and bright colors, along with an all-glass wall that opens to an individual patio or balcony.

Iconic Saarinen chairs pull up to tables and around fireplaces at the main restaurant, ZuZu, which serves classics like prime ribeye and braised short ribs. An outdoor bar and cabanas flank what Travel + Leisure declared one of the World’s Coolest Pools, the olive-in-a-martini-glass-shaped centerpiece of the grounds. 

The spa has saunas with chromotherapy and an outdoor terrace and offers a full menu of treatments like a coffee-berry yoga facial and honey ginger myofascial treatment.

This historic hot spot is a short walk from the renowned art galleries, shops and restaurants of downtown Scottsdale. Old Town Scottsdale is only a few blocks west, where a historical society anchors streets dotted with buildings in the Old West adobe style.

paid for a room with a balcony.. it was extra and it was not provided. Had to keep asking for special sauces that came w/menu items. Told were not available and had to be special made. Why on the menu? Party hotel. Blaring music for pool but heard all over the complex.

This was my first time booking a hotel through Travelzoo so was slightly apprehensive about what our room would look like. Ended up being in a perfect location, close to everything within the hotel property.
