When art lovers come to Scottsdale, they want to stay at a 4 star hotel that offers creativity at every turn. At The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, you’ll experience inspiration in everything we do. From tempting culinary delights to luxurious spa treatments, you’ll marvel in the artistic flair of our imaginative and talented staff.
Every creation at The Scottsdale Resort is a reflection of our local tapestry here in Arizona. Our state is known for gorgeous sunsets, striking images of the Sonoran Desert, and astounding natural geological formations. And, just as we are inspired by this naturally occurring beauty of the southwest, so are the multitude of local artists who display their creations here in Scottsdale.
In 1975, as an effort to share some of the astounding art that can be found in the Valley of the Sun, the art community founded Scottsdale ArtWalk, "America's Original ArtWalk." This longstanding tradition has become a favorite weekly event for travelers as well as local residents.
Every Thursday evening for the past 40 years, all member galleries of the Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) open their doors to the public for two hours. During this free weekly event, people are invited to wander and peruse art of all kinds. Scottsdale’s Arts District has an eclectic collection of art galleries, many featuring local artists. There are galleries specializing in traditional Native American arts, fine art from around the world, rare objects, glasswork, jewelry, and natural art such as museum-quality fossils and minerals.
The Art of a Spa Experience
So what can you do on the Friday after ArtWalk? As part of your 4 star hotel experience, why not include the art of a rejuvenating massage or spa treatment? Our Luna Spa is an escape for the senses that is the ideal way to spend part of your day. Our magnificent spa staff are artists in their own right and can help you transcend into a “master-peaceful “state of mind.
So whether you are visiting for a relaxing, art-filled vacation or an Arizona local in need of an inspired staycation, we invite you to stay with us at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. Contact us today to book one of our luxury suites or 4 star hotel rooms and come see all the art and beauty Scottsdale has to offer.
