Whimsical desert oasis with nightly lobby wine hours, a spa and Italian fare just steps from Scottsdale shopping
The soaring lobby has a nouveau lodge vibe, with wooden beams and a two-story stone fireplace alongside such whimsical details as light-up mod taxidermy and curvaceous loungers. The hallways in the guestroom wings have a slightly dated feel, which is probably inescapable given that FireSky was built in the 1960s.
Bed and Bath
Fortunately, the datedness does not carry over into the guestrooms, in which the minimalist use of Southwest materials and patterns (think leather headboards and plank-patterned rugs) gives a sense of place without making you feel as if you should have arrived by horse. In the bathroom, products are by C.O. Bigelow, America’s oldest apothecary, which put together a collection exclusively for Kimpton.
Just off the lobby, Taggia, FireSky’s Northern Italian fine dining restaurant (homemade gnocchi with braised veal is a favorite) and a shaded patio will make you feel as if you’re dining in Italy. The resort’s Jurlique Spa takes a holistic approach, combining Eastern and Western styles and using products made from plants grown organically on Jurlique’s own herb farms in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. But the real star of the show is the hotel’s lagoon, a sanctuary of lush vegetation and gurgling waterfalls with tucked-away seating areas
In the Area
Shopping is practically a professional sport in Scottsdale, and you can follow the most skilled practitioners to Old Town Scottsdale, a few blocks of shops, galleries and restaurants just south of Scottsdale Fashion Square. A few miles to the north, where the setting is more desert than city, visit Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Arizona home and studio. Taliesin’s neighbor, the 27,800-acre McDowell Sonoran Preserve, which contains 120 miles of day-hiking trails, is one of the country’s largest city-owned areas of protected land.
How to Get There
Came here for a "girl's getaway." Had such a good time. The room was beautiful...as well as the entire resort! Staff was courteous and friendly. Food was excellent. So glad we chose this place and we will return.
It was an amazing weekend from start to finish and my favorite resort I’ve EVER stayed at! I definitely recommend..the decor was beautiful and the crowd so fun! Customer service was beyond expectation!
I recently moved back to the valley and my tribe is scattered all over town: we’ve been looking for a central meeting spot and The Scott might just be it. Two of us did a little reconnaissance mission this weekend and had an absolutely lovely time.
If you’re into such things, the lobby is definitely insta-worthy with its lush Havana inspired decor.
We started with brunch in The Canal Club—the food was delicious and the cocktail menu extensive. Detail we loved? The cocktail menu gave descriptions and glass icons that really helped identify what you could expect from the drink.
We followed up with pedicures in the spa; there are only two chairs so this isn’t the place to gather your entire tribe all at once (you’d have to round robin different treatments and then meet by the pool). That said, it was an intimate setting, the technicians were wonderful and, fun fact, the long wearing polishes are created locally.
We had a great day and plan to come back—especially with local summer specials on the menu!
Great place to stay! We celebrated two birthdays with a joint celebration. Perfect venue, trendy with the right amount of luxurious ness. Bath robes, nespresso coffee and mini bar......perfect! Most important of all a normal size hairdryer!
My fiancé and I will come back another 100 times. This resort is absolutely amazing, from the check in staff to the pool side staff. The rooms are cozy and so comfortable. The pool area has such a diverse group of people at all times it’s such a blast. If you get a chance to stay here please introduce yourself to Jason, one of the pool side servers. The guy is an absolute rockstar. Anything and everything we needed he took care of for us.
We will 1000% be coming back.
Thank you so much for the great stay!
