Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa
From the complimentary glass of wine and flavored meringue treats upon arrival to the seamless checkout process, Scottsdale's newest resort, which opened December, 2016, is a 22-acre desert oasis. Overlooking Camelback Mountain, the Andaz sports contemporary architecture, three pools, and the Palo Verde Spa and Apothecary offering treatments with desert botanicals. Located in minimalist concrete casitas with patios and outdoor showers, the 201 guest rooms are sleek and modern with smoked gray-beamed wooden ceilings, Scandinavian Midcentury classics like the Eero Saarinen womb chair, and massive bathrooms with walk-in marble tile showers. Taking inspiration from the world of art, the hotel uses local talents for paintings and prints, and features work from the nearby Cattle Track Arts Compound in a gift shop that’s actually worth a visit. Don’t miss out on the locally sourced selections at the Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen, a laid-back dining destination with terrace seating overlooking the pool.
