W Scottsdale Hotel & Residences
The 300,000 square foot W Scottsdale Hotel and Residences provides an anchor for downtown Scottsdale’s emerging entertainment district. With 224 guest rooms, 18 luxury residences, 3 bars, spa, and upscale Sushi Roku restaurant, the new W functions as a catalyst in the ongoing revitalization of Scottsdale’s downtown.
The expansive level 2 pool deck with desert beach and lounge areas positioned to capture views of Camelback Mountain is the center of activity within the hotel. Guests are drawn to this lively hub from a combined grand staircase/art wall originating in the main “living room,” W’s signature social space.
The design of W Scottsdale, while clearly contemporary, 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.
