Fodor's Review

Once the home of Cunard Steamship executive Delos T. Cooke, this Mediterranean-style resort has a stately row of the namesake palms at its entrance, courtyards with fountains, and individually designed rooms. Deluxe suites, casitas, and villas are all different, though they follow one of three elegant styles: trompe-l'oeil, romantic retreat, or Spanish colonial. The restaurant, T. Cook's, is renowned, and the open-air Alvadora Spa seems like it has every imaginable amenity,

including an outdoor rain shower.

One of the Best Boutique Hotels operated by Destination

Outstanding Location and decor. Bar is intimate and drinks are excellent. A special place to visit in Scottsdale. Five Star in all respects, wanting to return very soon and bring others to this romantic place.
