Christie's TravelS: ArizonaHOTEL VALLEY HO · MOUNTAIN SHADOWS · SANCTUARY CAMELBACK MOUNTAIN RESORT & SPA
December was also quite a busy month! We had a team meeting in Phoenix at the Hotel Valley Ho which, of course, allowed us the privilege of visiting Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa, The Wigwam, and the new Mountain Shadows project set to open in April 2017.
LEFT: View from my Hotel Valley Ho Suite = HEAVEN and sunshine! | RIGHT: Team Preferred and Team Valley Ho at the most beautiful welcome reception on the Sky Line Rooftop!
241 extremely spacious and trendy condo style guestrooms – mid-century modern feel
Dual level penthouse options that are great for entertaining with full kitchens in each room
We had a 4-day meeting and the Valley Ho team executed everything flawlessly! This is a GREAT venue for a meeting.
Located right in the heart of the area downtown Scottsdale – plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance
I hiked up Camelback Mountain in the morning to watch the sunrise – only a 10 min Uber ride! What breathtaking views!!
Only 12 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
Golf courses are just minutes away – you will be able to use Mountain Shadows’ course too when it opens (same ownership group)
Sky Line Rooftop – very unique in the city with panoramic views of Camelback, AMAZING catering food – can also host a yoga class or workout session there
Loved the Sands Venue – converted from a restaurant and an incredible spacious foyer, very unique design, indoors and outdoors with fire pits which is perfect for larger groups without feeling like a meeting space
Be on the lookout for the grand re-opening of Mountain Shadows in mid-2017! It was originally opened in 1959 and now will re-emerge as the benchmark for desert luxury and distinctive design inspired by the 1950s modernism of the original resort.
Most stunning and breathtaking views out to the desert and mountains
4 miles from downtown Scottsdale and 9 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
Hearth 61 Restaurant – where most of the delicious offerings will be made in a hearth!
Midcentury modern/contemporary design inspired
The Short Course – golfing onsite – quick round par 3, 18 hole course
4,500 sf fitness facility!! Classes, personal training, TRX bands, high tech machines, views of pools – state of the art and huge highlight at the property

A world-class Spa and fitness facility
109 Guestrooms are newly revamped with a contemporary and classy design that you’ll fall in love with.
The latest and greatest enhancement that is a “must see” is their private oasis deluxe multi-level spa casitas – spacious, comfortable, with the most lavish amenities. I’ve been to the resort 3 times and STILL have yet to see these spa casitas on the inside as they’re always occupied.
