With 119 luxurious guest rooms, suites, casitas and villas, this charming hotel is a romantic hideaway with the rustic splendour of a Mediterranean estate. Built in 1929, the hotel was originally the private mansion of Delos Willard Cooke, a New York financier. In 1997, the resort reopened after a dramatic restoration to its original grandeur. A major addition to the estate in 2008 resulted in the Montavista Enclave, a collection of rooms and suites with breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain. The hotel is the only Arizona hotel ranked in Travel & Leisure's Top 100 Hotels in the World. Guests are welcomed in a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out service. Additional facilities at this air-conditioned historical hotel include a hotel safe, cloakroom, lift access, hairdressing salon, bicycle hire (fees apply), café, bar and restaurant. Conference facilities, wireless Internet access, room service and a laundry service are also available. Those arriving by car may leave their vehicle in the hotel car park.
