Travellers' Choice
Mountain Shadows set the benchmark for desert luxury and distinctive design when it first opened in 1959. Now, it’s been completely re-envisioned from the ground up. The brand-new resort is set in the shadow of Camelback Mountain in the serene town of Paradise Valley, an affluent community of Scottsdale, Arizona. Contemporary design is infused with a dash of the 1950's modernism that the original resort was famous for. Mountain Shadows features 183 guest rooms and 33 residences. Savor American fare that’s delightful in its simplicity at Hearth ’61 restaurant, bar and living room. Head to The Citizens Club for fitness classes, organic drinks from the juice bar and relaxing afternoons poolside. The Short Course offers 18 holes of par-3 golf, with options for the novice player and the experienced golfer. After a round, visit Rusty’s for grille fare and brews inside and on the patio. Desert and mountain views throughout the resort set the tone for a stay that’s relaxing yet invigorating.

I was able to come back to Mountain Shadows, this time for a quick anniversary trip. The place is great as always, but this was all about fun. My wife enjoyed the retro feel with the modernization that they have done. Rooms have a ceiling that is back to the bare concrete. Great overlook of the pool from our patio. The glass shower in the middle of the room is still a favorite of mine. Great food in the restaurant. Comfortable bed and plenty of room. Always happy to stay here.

Hotel's Favourite
My girlfriend and I checked in and were immediately greeted by what felt like the friendliest hotel staff in the business. Bill, who is a supervisor, even came out to greet us and offered us some water upon arrival. The hotel uses a SMS texting service that was SO EASY to request things like bath towels and an extra toothbrush, let alone any questions we had about hiking and places to go around Scottsdale. They warned us that Camelback mountain was a tough hike, which it was, so we thanked them for that , but we went anyway and it was so much fun. The food and drinks at the bar of their incredible Hearth restaurant was also fantastic. HIGHLY recommend.

Everything about Mtn Shadows is top notch but it is customer service like Sam’s at the Short Course that makes it memorable and worth sharing here. Sam is always upbeat, friendly, smiling, and just all around caring about making us comfortable and welcome. This is the 4th summer I’ve purchased a summer pass and my decision is always made easier because of professional customer care like Sam’s. Thank you Sam!!!

I golfed on Tuesday and had a great time. I lost my hybrid headcover a previous time golfing and told Sam from outside service when I first saw him. Sam went above and beyond to find my headcover in the lost and found and delivered it to me on the 5th hole. I always enjoy talking to Sam when I golf at the short course. Sam is polite and a genuine person. I’ll definitely be back to golf. Love the course!!!

The resort is nothing less then first class and amazing. It’s located in the beautiful Town of Paradise Valley and sits at the base of Camelback Mountain. The views are stunning. We played the golf course today and Sam in guest services was polite and accommodating and provided us with bottle watered, ice in our chest and made our round a first class facility. If your thinking of getting away and want a 5 star experience then I would recommend the resort.

Another great stay at Mountain Shadows. Everything about this hotel is nice. On this trip I had a small issue with my room that was resolved immediately. Exactly the way you would expect from a top-notch hotel. A special call out to Sydnee who was amazing at resolving the issue and went above and beyond what was expected . Just another reason why when I come to Arizona, I will be staying here again. Well done!
