Destination Information



Discover the area surrounding our stunning hotel near Camelback Mountain

Planted firmly in the Salt River Valley, or "Valley of the Sun,” Phoenix, Arizona is surrounded by acre upon acre of protected desert land, including South Mountain Park, the world’s largest metropolitan park. Called “Hoozdo” by the Navajo for the location’s hot, dry climate, Phoenix boasts high seasonal temperatures, making its luxury hotels the ideal destinations for warm weather getaways.

Later named Phoenix after the mythological bird that rose from the smoldering ashes of its predecessors, the city was first settled in 1867 by industrious farmers who brought forth the bounty of dry yet fertile land via a canal from the nearby Salt River. This small town dating back to the “Wild West” is now a cosmopolitan city filled with shopping, cultural attractions, luxury hotels and resorts.

Today, Phoenix is the pride of Arizona, a leading tourist destination, and sixth largest city in America. With its captivating desert surroundings and nearly 300 days of sunshine, Phoenix has become a perennial “hot spot” for residents and tourists who crave an active, outdoor lifestyle.

Our luxury hotel’s central location near Camelback Mountain makes it the perfect starting point for exploration.
