In the 1960s and ‘70s this evocatively named resort was the epitome of midcentury modern desert opulence. Torn down, rebuilt, and reopened in 2017, it’s now a thoroughly modern mid-sized boutique hotel in the middle of Paradise Valley. I find the front entrance a mystery—with no fountains and no fancy plaza, it looks like an employees’ entrance. But once inside, you’re treated to picture-window mountain vistas and all the latest luxury conveniences. The rooms have polished cement ceilings, spacious bathrooms, and even bathtub alcoves tucked next to the balconies where you can soak and gaze at Camelback. The property caters to a hip young crowd, with a sleek but not overwhelming party vibe on weekends, and a free shuttle takes guests to the spa and tennis facilities at the adjacent Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. The main restaurant, Hearth 61, is excellent.
