An Arizona architectural gem
The Arizona Biltmore isn’t called the Jewel of the Desert for no reason. Built in 1929, the stunning Phoenix hotel was designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s protégé, Albert Chase McArthur, and embodies the famous style of unit block design and indigenous materials. The Biltmore sits on 39 acres of land outfitted with outdoor pools, palm trees, manicured gardens and plenty of Arizona sun, and over the years the historic property has served as a playground for the world’s most famous faces including U.S. presidents, movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable and international dignitaries.
Guest rooms come in a variety of choices, from quaint cottages to spacious suites with outdoor patios, all with a charming Southwestern flair that still remains elegant and sophisticated. With a hearty selection of dining options, from upscale contemporary American to recognizable comfort foods, you won’t have to worry about where to go for meals during your stay at the Arizona Biltmore. A natural and organic spa is chock-full of relaxing treatments such as detoxifying green tea seaweed wraps and rose quartz facials, and seven tennis courts come equipped with USPTA pros on hand for lessons. But don’t forget about the Arizona Biltmore Country Club, which offers 36 holes over two courses dotted with lakes, 50-year-old fairways and well-bunkered greens.
