Visiting the Omni in Scottsdale is one of my favorite hotels this year in America. It is a visually pleasing hotel and it certainly helps that the food is fantastic and so is the customer service. I think I spent maybe 2 hours just walking the grounds and taking photos during my 1 night stay. It truly is one of those properties that you just can’t get over how pretty it is. Noted for its Spanish influence – you will feel like you have arrived in Spain during your trip to the desert.
When you first pull into the driveway of the hotel, you notice there are beautiful trees, plants, and gorgeous tiles. For me, when I arrive to a hotel, the design elements are the first impression – and I knew the hotel was going to be gorgeous after seeing the welcome.
The hotel does offer valet – I usually get valet because I find it is easier and they have in and out privileges, which allowed me to come and go as I wanted.
I cannot stress enough how beautiful the grounds and hotel are. Ever since I returned I keep plotting to return. Every tree is planted perfectly where it should be, the pool has an overlook of Camelback Mountain that is stunning, overgrown ivy is everywhere on the walls, the colors are perfection – I genuinely feel this property was made for those who love design.
The hotel has 293 rooms available, including 2 Presidential Suites.
I checked into a Poolside room that was on the second floor. The room had a separate bedroom, an expansive bathroom, living room, work area, and a large balcony that was equipped with a table and 4 chairs and 2 loungers overlooking the pool.
I personally loved the balcony and the view. I can remember sitting out there and just taking in the view for quite awhile.
The room also comes with 2 TV’s, a minibar, room service menu, a large bath tub, luxury bath products, and the all important air conditioning! It was definitely hot during my visit – and having the ability to change the temperature was a blessing.
The hotel has 5 dining options plus room service. When I arrived I had breakfast in Prado and immediately fell in love with the food and the staff, so I knew I would return for dinner and brunch the following day.
I will say the bacon here is delicious. If you know me or follow me on any of my other channels, I talk about bacon a lot. I love bacon and find it delicious. Both my mother and I raved about their bacon our entire trip – so it is definitely worth ordering.
All the food at the hotel was scrumptious. It was above par and I have no complaints.
I loved my short stay at this hotel. I will forever rave about the details because I found those to be the draw to this property. For me, design is everything. It can really change your experience when you enjoy the visuals around you. No detail was left undone at this property and I genuinely want to come back as quickly as I can. 1 night was just not enough time to take everything in.
