Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's colleague Albert Chase McArthur, the Biltmore has been Phoenix's premier resort since it opened in 1929. The lobby, with its stained-glass skylights, wrought-iron pilasters, and cozy sitting alcoves, fills with piano music each evening. Guest rooms are large, with Southwestern-print fabrics and Mission-style furniture. The Biltmore sits on 39 impeccably manicured acres of cool fountains, open walkways, and colorful flowerbeds. Within the resort is the Ocatilla boutique hotel—120 rooms combine intimacy and comfort, offering personal concierge service, privacy from the main hotel grounds, and an exclusive lounge with all-day refreshments.
