W Scottsdale Hotel and Residences
The W Scottsdale Hotel and Residences provides an anchor for downtown Scottsdale's emerging entertainment district.
With 224 guest rooms, 18 luxury residences, three bars, a spa, and the upscale Sushi Roku restaurant, the W functions as a catalyst in the ongoing revitalization of Scottsdale's downtown. Guests ascend a curving sculptural staircase to an expansive pool deck—the center of activity within the hotel, with desert beach and lounge areas positioned to capture views of Camelback Mountain. The contemporary design of W Scottsdale includes regional materials, colors, and architectural elements.
The low-rise base podium on which the building sits makes use of sand-colored, split-face Jerusalem stone and deeply recessed windows. On the higher residential levels, the use of trellises and shutter-like louver panels also evoke Scottsdale's regional aesthetic, while protecting interior guestroom spaces from solar exposure.
